They are selling their 1860 home! :cry: She said she loves it but they can't take it with them when they move. Most folks that have looked at the house see this & think it's "cute", but..."well, it's SO old".

Their loss....my gain! :mrgreen: I offered an even swap for my 2 yo electric stove, but they already have another one ordered. Boo....

It's currently in their kitchen...hooked up & fully functional! I'm pinching myself! She's having her hubby take a pic of the fitting where the gas hooks up. Maybe you guys can tell if I can do the propane conversion.

I need to hire some muscle...it's about 300 lbs. All the guys I know are my age & already have lower back problems. I'm not even going to ask them! hehe
I love the Tappans! Does it have the drawers on the sides? Not sure about the conversion, but check out http://tappantalk.blogspot.com/

These are the drawers:

OMG....I've been on that blog ALL day at work! So addictive. So far, I've yet to see on just like this one. Closest is this one... http://tappantalk.blogspot.com/2010_03_01_archive.html

The 2 in this post are the only ones I'd seen with the switch at the top right of the chrome area on the top. All the others have the little "PhilGas" light...which is very cool!

Not sure if it has the drawers, but I love the little Tappan Dude S & P shakers! :mrgreen:

I'm sooo excited for you!! Before we bought the Bengal we almost got a Doughboy Deluxe. Chrome oven, crisper drawers, lighted knob rings. OMG. But we couldn't reconfigure our kitchen to use a 40" stove.

Converting that cookstove to LP is easy. The jets get replaced with ones with smaller holes, and it gets a new regulator. Sometimes the pilot jets can be replaced, sometimes you solder a disc over the end and drill out a tinier hole. Then you move the air shutters on front of the burner assemblies to make the fire blue and you are done.

This is how I get stuff moved: I join a church choir. Step 2--tell the tenors and basses I have a piano I need help with. Voila. This works for me every time.

I have the same fridge and can vouch for it being AWESOME. It's quiet and uses less electric or equal to the 2004 Kenmore 18cu ft energy star we replaced with it. Under the "butter and cheese keeper" is a built in egg tray. It's sooo very cool!
