Looks beautiful. Nice job. And we do need more info on how you cleaned it up. I've got mine to do, so any hints will be appreciated.

He didn't do that. He bought it new from the UK and paid a thousand bucks for it.......

Bill: No, really I did it all, but I wonder if any of these heaters will be for sale next weekend at Stoneleigh. Remember $1000 is only ÂŁ500 lately! Please stay tuned for a complete report. /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Paul et al: sorry for the late reply. I've been traveling quite a bit lately - off to Stoneleigh tomorrow.

new labels are available on the web for under $10. They are blank and I stamped this one in my shop.

cheers Frank

nothing fancy - Eastwood entry-level gun and power pack and our old Jennair range/oven. The biggest challenge was building the small hood over the range. I'll post some photos when I get back home - real rube goldberg affair.
