Haven’t been around for a while – life went a little pear shaped and we had to go into survival mode 😆 Anyway, back into the swing of things and the 18 month long kitchen renovation is back on now that we have just purchased a second Everhot Deluxe 204 wood stove so we can make one good one out of two.
We’re just beginning so any advice here is helpful, we have both stoves apart and look to need a new water jacket and shaker grill if we can find one…
I notice some here had (many years ago) instruction manuals and user guides. Any still about? The links are too old and no longer work 🙁

What kind of help do you need? Do want recommendations to buy new water jacket and shaker grill?July 4, 2012 at 12:19 pm #525512July 5, 2012 at 12:22 am #525513
We have a few parts to buy – would like a shaker grate IF we can find one but I don’t think it’ll be a problem.
I have tried link above before. Think we’re going to go with him but a bit scared of the cost of freight from WA. Gonna get a quote anyway – will call him tomorrow.July 5, 2012 at 12:40 am #525514
We have an everhot sitting outside that is beyond repair, but does have some good parts still. I am not sure of the model. I am also not sure what a shaker grate is?
Wait Hubby says it’s a foot pedal thing for the fire box?
Not sure if the water jacket on ours is ok, can have a look, if you are interested.July 6, 2012 at 3:38 pm #525515
Have you checked out ebay, and the like?
:whistle:July 6, 2012 at 10:17 pm #525516
Thank you Misty, a very kind offer but I googled Nanango and the logistics are not favourable 🙁
Have tried Ebay, where I found the second one – just have to find new parts and a manual now…the water jackets are usually rusted out by the time they are being done up – we have found the enamaled oven assembly on both were worn where the shelves slid in and each has a hole in the side… we need a flue kit and a shaker grate which I have found new as well. Looking at buying from Mr Woodstoves in WA as his frieght is very reasonable and the difference in price from his water jacket to the one I priced here in VIC will more than cover the cost of freight. Hoping his love of the work will help us in being able to complete the project too, I have heard nothing but good things about him :tup:July 7, 2012 at 12:44 pm #525517
We found Charles ( mr Woodstoves ) excellent and very reasonably priced. We live in country WA and he came up here and did up our Everhot including rebricking it :tup: We had considered buying a new thermolux but by doing up the Everhot we ended up with a much better stove at arround a third the price :clap:July 7, 2012 at 8:21 pm #525518
Yes! I too have found Charles (sorry, didn’t catch his name on the phone) to be much cheaper than anywhere else, even in my own state after freight!
Have read nothing but good feedback about him on forums and after I give the agent for Scandia in our town an opportunity to quote, I’m likely to go with Woodstoves. Don’t think we’ll be asking him to make the trip here though! 🙂July 9, 2012 at 6:17 pm #525519
OK. I have ordered the parts and Charles was extremely helpful. I ordered both the books available on the stove. Here’s hoping for a quick and painless project! 😆August 2, 2012 at 7:11 pm #525520
Well the parts arrived, can’t say I’m 100% happy but we’ve gone on our merry way anyway…
The oven is in as well as the water jacket, welded some parts for the flue opener/closer bit and ready to put the remaining firebricks in.
All in all, coming along nicely 🙂
Have grouted the tiles for the hearth and the wall behind the stove and the top half of the flue is in through the roof.
Have the outer of the stove, the hob and the top panel to install and then we should be able to put it in, hook it up to the water and go. We’re having to install a tank in the roof for water for cooking and drinking – currently we collect the water by hand from the water tank outside. H wants to install a tap in the wall above the stovetop to fill the large pots for cooking, we have always intended for the drinking water to be fed into the house and have a seperate tap at the sink currently without a connection. Need a way to pump the water up to the roof until we have the gravity fed tank installed, requiring a tankstand, and a windmill to get it up there – we’re aiming for no pumps. Might need a hand operated one to start with. Not really looking forward to that bit 🙁August 2, 2012 at 7:29 pm #525521
Would love to see pictures if you can.
