A friend has offered me an old (1930's) Magic Chef cook stove that once ran on natural gas. Since we live very ruraly in the mountains of North Carolina we can only get propane. My question is weather or not this stove can be converted to LP and how...thanks to anyone who responds, sam.

Hi, I'd like to know how to obtain a 6 burner gas oven/stove from the 1930s. I read in "Country Living" magazine that someone was able to get a genuine stove/oven from that era and that a gentleman had restored one featured on the magazine. Anyone have any suggestions?

Yeah, the main thing is the orifices. Some are adjustable, and some are fixed and have to be replaced. I just did our 1928 Magic Chef and also our Chambers. Originally, I contacted TOAC and the Old Stove place. I wanted to put a gas safety valve and standing pilot on both the stove's ovens. They told me to send a series of photographs to them, and they would custom-design the parts I needed. Well, I sent the photos, and called them a couple of times, they didn't get back to me, and then gave up on them. Wound up doing it myself. If you buy yourself a reprint owner's manual, it should give you all the orifice and setup specs. for using propane.

mine is a 1928 norge and the propane company here (rural west va.) just had to order different orifices(?). love a gas stove for canning don't mind on the electric but grew up with gas stoves so I guess it's what i'm used to.

Yes I think you can. Talk to your propane guy about the jets. If they don't make propane jets for you stove you can find someone to open them up for you. The propane jet holes are a little bigger. I'm not sure just how much.
