It's not a Willow but looks a bit like a Vallor Willow. A smaller version perhaps?

 

See the source image

Well its very similar and i reckon steel construction. Only want to know if it a good one and not some cheap thing.

Must have belonged to Stevie Wonder going by the weld on the collar of the flue.

Not looked closely but the flue slides inside the collar and rope or cement is used. Either way i have a nice new one at hand :)

They look like tide marks up the door glass. Good stove though.

Well spotted, the boat was sank for a time and resting that side at an angle.

Arada is the manufacturer. Hardy 4 is the model. As per post #4.

They must have changed the model slightly then. Our stove has sharper edges and no lever on the left. I assume this helps clear the grate.

My AX2 model size seems to match the Hardy 5. I assume they changed model name to sound less like a Citroen car!!

I do some work for Machine Mart and I’m aware that they’re constantly updating their fires, sometimes only subtlety, mostly to achieve DEFRA approval. I’d guess that all manufacturers do the same.

You're right , looking in close up its some kind of sealant. 

 

 

Surface rust like this doesn't need sand blasting that would be way over the top, you just need a wire wheel in a grinder . ( never use wire wheels without eye protection )

 

I have restored plenty of stoves over the years.

Got it home and soaked it for a few days in wd40. Took some  loosening  but managed  it. 

 

Grate bars are good which i good great

 Pan is shot though. No biggy. 

 

As you can see the flue wasn't  welded as thought

So time for a clean up. Fire it up and repaint it. I thought the walls would be thicker. I made a few stoves in the past and used 8mm plate. Hope to get a new tray but easy 20190916_180157.jpg.8a6a634d9b9229296952b3dca79c8bea.jpgto make one if i can't.
