Off the Hanger: Stovin’


I had to post some of this stuff just so you and Dexter could have a good laugh. This was one of my favorite jobs for sure, probably because of the insanely ghetto approach we took at restoring these things. Rustoleum, check.

Safety Glasses (sometimes)
Welding Hat (not sure why these were always around, we always had our man “Ace” do the welding)
Jeffrey’s Tee
Buckle and Belt
Finished Stove
Opera (the guy I worked for would sometimes get so emotional listening to the music we had to shut it off. I loved that.)
Flat Head Screwdriver (there was a mandate that nothing phillips could touch the stoves)
Mica Windows
Rustoleum High Heat
Disc Grinder (pretty much the extent of our “fancy” tools)

    saw a great bit recently about an east coast “stove refinishing” place… basically he takes them out back and sandblasts them then spray paints then black. sounds fun. opera… killing me. great bit. sidenote, why do welding underhats always look like bavarian ladies underwear…

    That’s exactly what we did, sand blast ‘em and paint ‘em. Petty simple really. Those hats do too, if its not the pattern its the bra-like cone coming off the top of your head. Luckily most of the guys that sport those are tough enough to not care in the least, kind of like the pom-pom rancher hats. Just proves if you’re a badass you can wear anything you want.
