    Hi All-- I'm new here. 10 years ago, I bought an old home in Syracuse, NY-- partly because of this beauty! A few years ago, I remodeled my tiny kitchen and moved this baby to my basement (now I have a proper summer kitchen--like every good Italian girl needs! :) I am relocating for my job but really hope I can bring this baby with me and somehow work it into the kitchen plans of a camp I'm gutting (north of Utica, NY). Everything on this stove was in perfect working order when we moved it but there are several pilots to light/check. Also, I use propane up at camp. Does anyone have experience in converting from gas to propane? Also, I'm concerned it could be a safety hazard (and costly) to keep all the pilots on all the time. (I am usually at the cabin weekends only and there's a possibility I might rent it at times.) Is there a way to get it fitted with some kind of stopcock or valve so I can fire up all the pilots by lighting just one? I absolutely love this stove and it will surely break my heart to leave it behind, but I don't want to bear the expense of moving it if there's no way I can convert it or ensure it's safe for use. If anyone can address my questions or knows anyone in the Central NY area who is skilled with vintage stoves for repair or restoration, I'd appreciate the info/referral. Thank you!

      A conversion to propane gas from natural gas is very simple and possibly uses the same apparatus. I ran a stove off a regular gas grill propane tank, all I needed was a "regulator" in between. Mine was set up so there was only a single pilot light that needed to be lit and all the burners and oven would then operate. To turn off the gas when leaving after a weekend, you just turn off the gas from the line (the existing gas in the line will burn off slowly thru the pilot light). My propane dealer actually built my regulator and line system on-site in his shop. All I had to do was hook it up between the tank and stove. - If I lived up in that area, I would come and install it for you, but alas, I am way down here in sunny Florida.

      AGH, thank you for such a speedy response! I had a feeling it was possible, but that sucker is heavy and will cost a fortune to move & transport. I was going on blind faith (and a little bit of Googling) that something could be done with it. I'm glad your conversion was successful. Thank you for your kind (almost) offer... You just had to rub it in that you're in FLA. We got hit with 20+ inches of snow yesterday. :)

      When you get up there in the country, check with a local place that sells outdoor grills. - My dad easily had our outdoor propane grill converted to run off the natural gas line from the house. Just the opposite of what you want to do.
      Sorry to hear about the snow :( - It's 78 degrees here right now :)
