Possible Stove Finally

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I had a rather long threads bit better and will not mention it until I get some thoughts on value. last year on finding a good coal stove and found this and want an opinion before I call see if I can get the price thoughts as to worth. Next question how do I insert some pics? It is a Glenwood oak that looks very complete and all trim there etc.

From the pics it looks pretty good. Be sure to check for any cracks, thin spots, dents and that everything is lined up correctly. Tells us your location and there could be a fellow NEPA member who could look at it with you. A good "second set of eyes" so to say.

I had a fellow NEPA with me when I bought my BB and I am very thankful I did.

Wishing you this BEST of LUCK! :D

You did not mention the model number.

The fire pot has a very thick lining which is good but will lessen the amount of coal it will hold and lower burn time at high output. Check for shaker crank too. It looks good and ready to go.

The shaker crank is missing already got that. My goal to be worth the cost is 24 hours in mild temps and 12 when cold and cold being 15 to 20 degrees and 1400 sq ft.

I saw this on GL for awhile at about $795.00 (not bad at all), the firebrick looks way overly thick as mentioned previously (it hurts radiant heat as well), that rear double baffle pipe is "key"... make sure the baffles in it (exhaust should be running down one side the entire length into the under ash area and back up to out the flu). GO GET IT and post up some pics when that beauty is set up!

So the down pipe to fire box should be divided?

yes... Im not an expert here (their are others like William who I would differ to)... but I believe that rear pipe should be divided down the entire length (gases go down, around the base pan and then back up the other side of pipe). This happens to be a highly sought after rear pipe that is difficult to obtain and difficult for most to fabricate (though we do have threads about how to fab one).

If only I saw this an hour ago. Just lit mine. But yes if you look inside the stove you should see a flap to divert flue gas. Although if the stove isn't connected you should see the flap from outside. Handle out your in direct draft, you should see straight thru to daylight. handle in your indirect. Good luck. Matt

I think you will find the gasses go down the back pipe, do a 180 deg turn at the bottom and come right back up and out into the stovepipe........... No base pan as found on the Glenwood No.6 and 8 base burners. I've seen them referred to as "back burners." Typical of the Glenwood No.114, No.116 and No.118.

see that... I knew something was very important about that rear pipe (just enough to get me in trouble until others with more knowledge come save me) :clap:

I got the dimensions from the seller and it is not going to work for me it any way it is too deep off the wall. The dimensions are 24 inches wide 27.5 deep and 51 inches tall as given to me.

As a side note the seller is in the auction biz something he said I think without thinking first, so he is in the buying and flipping biz and they generally shoot for a 40 to 60% return on their money in my experience so may have some room to deal if bringing cash in hand. He is asking 850 and with just the slightest protest on cost to go and pick up he was at 800 right away. Take note the pics are 5 months old. so has had purchase money tied up for at least 5 months and no doubt 8 or 9 to paint polish redo firebox etc. It is missing the handle for grates too. He foolishly also chatted away about his 10000 sqft warehouse and 2000 sqft portioned off for his use and needed to move some things out.

Here is the Craigslist ad for it.

Not sure about the Glenwood oak - but it looks like the bottom is missing the foot rests. If you look at my Glenwood, you can see the two side foot rests in my pic.... Don't know if they all have them, and your side photo isn't clear enough but you might not have a complete stove there...

It's a Modern Glenwood Oak 114 and not a base heater.14 inch fire pot.

Missing the ash pan also but not a bad buy considering the nickle looks good.
