    This is one of a handful of stoves, that has been a pleasure working on.
    Next big job will be stripping and painting the case later in the year.

    On the fettling side, the generator had a slight split and a small pin hole, which a good mate of mine fixed.
    Other than that, I cleaned the manifold, by boiling in a solution of Citric acid.
    All burners work extremely well on all settings, with very little loss of power, on burners 2 and 3.

    Great stove! Is the case really in need of restoration? From the pics (which can hide lots of badness), it looks to be in great shape....I'd leave it, but then again, I've never touched any of my Prentiss-Wabers....or any stoves. Maybe I'm a preservationist.....but even more likely...I'm lazy.

    haha.
