Thanks for all the help so far. I've narrowed the problem down a bit more: First, it's not the circuit since the top element still works. And thanks to my friendly neighborhood Mar-Beck's, it's not the element. Granted, the male end of the plug on the element is a bit corroded, so I'm going to clean...

help! broken vintage thermador!

Wow, I'm hoping someone can help me with this one. We have a Thermador WO-18A oven in our home. It's a 24" built-in. The lower (bake) heat element went out in it the other day. I can't find one anywhere, and no one seems to be able to find out even enough to tell me what is compatible. The bott...

As to cutting a standard APPLAD door, I didn't look to see what the edge treatment is, but in general all you'd need would be a 35 mm flat-bottom drill (Forstner, or multi-spur) bit, ideally in a drill press, to make a new hinge cup hole (those are "cup hinges," generically). Cuts are at ...

Re: Fireplace sets

I was curious if any of you have found any cool fireplace screens, or fireplace sets (pokers, shovels, etc. ) I've seen the very cool Nelson designed set but that's a little out of my price range. I've toyed with the idea of having a metal fabricator make me a set, so please post some pics if you h...
