My New Baby

Not that kind......

But this kind.

A 1941 gas Roper, with 6 burners, 2 ovens and 2 broilers.  I still need to find a couple of parts (actually 2 of the same part) for the ovens and broilers to work correctly, but the top is working perfect.  Later, I am going to have the clock and light housing re-chromed.

I should be able to get 3 or 4 canners running on it at the same time next summer during canning season.  That will sure speed up the canning.  My stove that this replaced, was a glass top, and did not let me use a large canner.  It took 2 hours to heat the canner, then I could not do back to back batches or it could crack the glass as it would tend to over heat.

Now I am set.
