A special order is a part that we do not stock at our warehouse. The part will be charged to your credit card and then ordered to be shipped to us.

Can you repair my stove?
+ -

No, we do not repair, but we can provide you with the parts required to do the repairs on your stove.

Does Cast Iron have a Warranty?
+ -

No, we do not warranty cast iron parts.

Will my cast iron part need extra work done to it when I receive it?
+ -

Yes. All cast iron parts should be seasoned before using in a normal coal or wood stove fire. Some of our parts are no longer available through the manufacturer because they have been discontinued. So in order to keep the part available for our customers we remake these parts. In the process of recasting a part, some parts might need additional grinding and/or drill holes put into the part in order to have the part work correctly. The customer would have to do this grinding and/or drilling. We recommend doing the additional work BEFORE seasoning.

How do you Season Cast Iron?
+ -

There are No Warranties on cast iron parts. All cast iron parts should be seasoned before using in a normal coal or wood stove fire. This can be done in two different ways.
The first way is three to five small kindling fires in the wood stove. These fires should be small and in between each one the stove should cool.
The second way for seasoning cast iron is taking the new piece of cast iron and placing it into your oven. Start the temperature of the oven at 325º and then every 30 minutes go up 25º until the oven reaches its highest temperature. Do not touch, cast will be HOT. Then let the parts cool.
After either of these steps are done, you are ready to start burning your stove.

I received my part today and there are no holes drilled in it. Can you tell me why?
+ -

We do not drill holes in some of our parts because when we recast the part it shrinks an 1/8" per square foot. Also if your stove is an older stove the heat of burning the stove could have slightly changed the location of the part. If we had drilled the holes they would not line up correctly, causing problems with the installation of the part. So we have found the customer needs to mark and drill the holes in order to have them line up correctly. The holes should be marked and drilled with a standard drill bit BEFORE the cast iron part is seasoned.
