    Thanks guys , but I am in Taranaki , cheers

    Yeap was thinking hose it down outside , maybe kill the rust liquid , and then wirebrush wheels on grinder & then paint it black , need a chalking sealer ? , to join the halfs together etc .

    Its going in my shooting hut , out on a mates farm , looking forward to getting the stove in & having a cup of tea on it , will teach my little monkeys how to light wood fire as a side benefit .

    Cheers Chris

    They're cast iron not steel, just clean it and granny it! If it's going in a house you will have to get it re certified for the permit to install and for insurance purposes. What a stupid world we live in!!!

    @ChrisF

    Save yourself shit loads of time effort and have it sandblasted.

    A wire wheel on a drill will take you bloody ages and won't do anywhere near as good a job.

    Once sandblasted or cleaned with a wire wheel

    Apply this to cure and seal the surface

    Use either of these to seal the joints

    Hi better products to use on the outside once sandblasted or cleaned with a wire brush is a paint called Stove bright from most Woodfire retailers that sell Masport or metro fires.
    Also go to Repco and get a Holts product that is the same as maniseal comes in a small tube but has a way higher temp rating.
    If in NP call into 4 seasons they will have the paint.

    Spark it up, most of the rust will fall off when the metal expands and when cold again a hard bristle brush will get the rest then stove black.

    + 1 for the stove brite , wire brush does the trick or though one down side no one has mentioned is that it will take at least a 6 pack ( each ..... this could take a few blokes ) to get the dust out of your throat.
