    I have this old stove which we removed from our house. I think it's regular steel not cast iron though it weighs a ton (I can barely lift it).
    We put it outside for a bit and of course that's when the rain came, while we were busy elsewhere.

    So now it looks like this:

    We're not sure what we're going to do with it but it's sad to see - not tried anything yet, what would be best? Can I get the rust off or does it have to be painted?

    Thanks. It was removed because it basically got condemned, due to being improperly fitted and then we got a new one that was easier to sweep.

    So this one will either be given away or sold (assume ot cost a few bob new but no idea), or we might turn it into an outdoor stove if I can get a pipe... no cares with leaking outside! If it was outside it'd have a cover but it's clearly not really designed for that.

    It looks interesting, have you got pictures from the front/ door side with it closed and door open?
