New gear for the cominsarry dept
« on: October 04, 2018, 08:28:29 pm »
May or may not make it to the next muster, needs torn down and restored.  Also need a squad to load it and unload, but could be fun to have.

Was going to take it apart in the pick-up but it rains on my days off.  Got it off whole between showers, amazing what one can do by yourself by using balance and leverage.  We loaded it with a Bobcat.

That is a mighty fine hunk of cast iron stove! I'm surprised you can walk after moving that by yourself. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the one my late Father in Law brought us.  He took it apart,  and half the stuff went mia. No clue where the rest goes.

Only thing I'm missing is the lid lifter, couldn't find it and I know I used it when I last used the stove in the late 80's, plenty around though.


Got the water resivoir also.

Coal/wood in, cinders/ash out.  Might need to build another shack on the hill for it!
