When it comes to antique gas stoves, here is all the help 

you will ever need...




Hi, my name is Jack Santoro.  

I am an American Antique Appliance Historian and Editor of "The Old Road Home", a vintage appliance magazine. My specialty is restoring antique stoves.


Since 1973, my company, J.E.S. Enterprises, has restored or refurbished over 17,000 stoves.

If you've read this far, I'd have to guess that you also have an interest in beautiful old ranges.

That leads me to this question...

Would you like to purchase or restore an antique stove like

a real pro?

If so, I have some exciting news just for you.



After 26 years in the antique stove  business, I have experienced and found a solution to most every problem you can think of pertaining to an old stove. The best techniques are compiled into the six books which appear above.


I have authored these books to help people who by need or design wish to restore their own stoves. My first manuals were released in 1994. Since then, thousands of people have located and restored their own ranges and, in doing so, added a real-life story to their family history. Pretty neat stuff ! But it gets even better...


Some of my students enjoyed rebuilding their ranges so much they have since opened their own restoration businesses and are now doing great work for other folks!


 If you are serious about buying and restoring a stove that you can cherish for a lifetime, these are the tools you need.


I promise to save you the frustrating, time consuming and costly mistakes of restoring your first antique stove. Everything you need is included in each manual, plus I offer a *special bonus* that is truly a knock-out. You'll read about at it at the end of this article.


Do you stop dead in your tracks when you a see gorgeous old stove? If so, here are the shop manual reports you need  to successfully purchase, repair and correctly maintain a dynamic range. They will help to bring your dream stove right into your own kitchen. These almost bullet-proof stoves, made so many years ago, will never be manufactured again. 


Better get one for your kitchen soon...the supply is starting to dwindle really fast!
