New parts to fix this old guy

The online prices were just as reasonable as buying the item from a hardware store, and very luckily, they didn’t charge an arm and a leg for shipping

I was looking through some items that we had stored in the garage and I found an old oil furnace that definitely used to be in my Grandparents house. I can remember laying by the furnace all winter when my sibling and I were small children. We played in the same room as the heater and my Grandparents regularly reminded us to stay away from the oil heater for safety. They had a furnace in every room of the house and it didn’t seem to be too big of a problem. Nowadays, those oil gas furnaces are considered dangerous. I tried to go over and turn on the power to see if the device still worked. I didn’t have any luck with that attempt, however I absolutely wanted to see if I could still restore the item to its original condition. I waited until my day off from work and I opened up the heating device to see all of the parts inside. A lot of items were full of rust. I ordered some additional parts online that I thought would fit the make and model. I couldn’t really find anything that was an exact match. I have to wait to wait for the heater components to arrive, because they are coming from a foreign country. The online prices were just as reasonable as buying the item from a hardware store, and very luckily, they didn’t charge an arm and a leg for shipping. It would definitely make myself and others smile to see this heater work and revisit my youthful times.
