In case you missed it, you can read the first part here.
I have just agreed to buy this:
It's a 1941 Chambers Model B stove. I went to see it this weekend and fell in love. It's fully functional and can be used as-is. I'm going to do some cleaning, repaint the interior metal frame, have the top rechromed, and reporcelain the burners. Total cost, including the stove, should be less than $900.
So, there's more cleaning and painting in my future. And disassembling an appliance I know virtually nothing about.
I must be nuts.
