Dean:

And, in memoriam, there were at least two superb Brad Batchelder-restored guns brought, shown and shot there.

But, enough about guns and shooting. Howd things go with the stove installation?

Setting aside my smart a answer , we had a great time. Jack is a great guy and it was great to see everyone.

I feel bad that I did not take a group picture. Or any pictures in fact. Did anyone?

I thought it would be a thirty-minute job but it turned into almost three hours.

I had to convert it from natural gas to LP gas. Changed all the jets and made several air mixture adjustments and had to remove a few panels and baffles to get to the oven manifold jet and adjust that for LP.
Probably the most time-consuming part was disconnecting the gas line from the old stove which was waaaaay over tightened. I finally had to put vise-grips on the flare nut ans slip my 20" length of 12 ga. Shotgun barrel over the vise-grip handle to use as a breaker bar.

A real PITA... but that's what we do for our kids.

We had a great time. Awesome to see most of everyone again.

Due to recent events, I decided to bring my Syracuse Quality Three LC Smith 10 gauge that Brad Bachelder did work on and in memory of him. He restored the barrels and the case colors.

She's a monster. Extra heavy frame, 10.6lbs, 32" barrels, and choked very tight for those long shots. This is also the earliest found Syracuse Q3 in the chronology of surviving LC Smith shotguns.
