What type of business for metal cleaning/repairing?
We have a small cast iron gas stove that is probably around 80 years old. It was old and messy when I pulled it off the street 40 years ago but with a little cleaning it has served us well as an all purpose back hallway catch all---plant stand, etc. Although it probably has no value other than the sentimental value I attach to it, I would like to have it gone over by some sort of metal work professional to remove the old gas pipe still attached to the side, get rid of some sharp edges and rust, and fix the hinge of the drop down oven door. When I scavenged it from the street it was painted a matte black but I suspect that at least the door may be porcelain underneath but I don't really care about "restoring" it, just making it presentable and safe for the grandchildren to be around. Are there businesses that do this type of work? Do they charge a lot? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. TIA.
