Thanks for the reinforcement. My searches weren't working because I
was unaware of the key term: "boxwood" stove. Vogelzang does indeed
make them and they are available from various outlets. The best price
I have found so far is from Amazon.com, for 170 plus 91 shipping.
Won't be sure if it will fit where I want it in the Heartwood kitchen
until I get back there and measure. Our beautiful old Wedgewood gas
stove, circa 1930, burned out a rear plate where the fire boot
connects to the "trash burner" section on the left, which is lined
with cast iron plates and burns wood nicely. If that were its only
problem I would fix it. I have a professional appraisal stating its
value as-is at 900. If I can sell it here even for much less it will
save the hauling and more than pay for a new Vogelzang.
