Found this 1897 Bissell and Company Cast Iron Fireplace insert on craiglist for $75.00 thought it was really cool looking, also wondering if I got a good deal also wondering if I should keep it the way it is or through it the depo machine and remove the rust and restore the cast iron to it's former glory?

    This looks like a factory painted item. What you want it to look like when it is done is up to you. I prefer orignal colors and finishes. It looks great like it is, for the border, a little bit of soapy water, tooth brush, and good drying (hairdryer) will make it pop.
