Default Longwood duel fuel furnace PICS ADDED!!

My dad has had one of these furnaces for nearly 30 years and loves it. I just moved into a house and was excited to see one in the basement. However, it needs a new shield to lay in the bottom of the fire hole. If you're familiar with this furnace you know what I'm talkin about. Anyway, the manufacturer of these furnaces shut down in the late 90's and all parts places that I know if are also closed.
So... does anybody know of a place I might be able to get a part? OR, does anybody know of a place that might be able to fabricate something that will work instead?
Thanks for the help!

these stoves were made in missouri and last i knew the man that ran the business died around 2000, and his daughter kept the business running for a few years selling parts. She has closed the business now and to my knowledge there is no place to get parts. there IS a guy in New York that has the automatic damper door and does make the grates but I haven't talked with him yet to hear a price.
Thompson, if i can get one from that man at a decent price i'll do that. otherwise, i'm gonna be trying to get the dimensions and see if somebody can fabricate something. problem is, it's in a arc shape to lay in the bottom of a rounded furnace. then it has holes in it for the ashes to fall through. could be pretty tricky.
thanks guys

that number was out of service SOM.
i DID get ahold of that guy in new york who sells the grates. sells the set for $150 plus shipping. They're made out of iron so i'm guessing round $200 total. Hope i can find somethin cheaper or get somebody to cobble somethin for me.
thanks for the help!
