Now that's a cracked plate! I would stay away from that one.

You can buy a lot of firewood for what that thing costs and get better heat too.

I love it. A good looking corpse must be worth something, no???

Having said that, I'm sure someone could fix that plate. For about 12 times as much as that piano will ever be worth....
