Thank you Russ for

I'm a manager in a metal fabrication company (precision
assemblies, etc.--a job shop) and can hardly believe the quality
durability of these vintage machines. It occurred to me
that these were
built by a different culture from our own; one that valued building
things "the best they could be built". Not disposable.
Not for short-term pleasure. These were meant to last your
lifetime, more like a home than a mere appliance. These
are, in essence, relics of mid-century America at its zenith of
mechanical age pre-eminence.
Yet stoves, unlike cars, never really lose their functional capacity.
The machine is essentially gas plumbing in an insulated box. There's
no reason (other than availability of hydro-carbon gases) that
these vintage stoves, if cared for, can't perform for literally
generations to come.
