went to friends house on way home and picked up 111 . first time I really got a close look at it . very nice . it is a baseburner . it seems to be simplier than the #6 and #8 . I took it apart to move it and it is still sitting in my truck . I will move it inside when the kids fall asleep . I will get pictures up asap .

Great!!! I'm glad to hear it. Now you have got a coal stove Supremeo. I read what you said about selling it. Don't you dare. That stove will pay for itself in coal savings in no time.
Yes, I would like to see detailed pictures of it. Welcome to the Glenwood Base Burner Society. You are now member No. 3.

That is a beautiful stove. And you have one with the extended length barrel. That will make it even more efficient. That stove will crank out the heat. I can't wait to see more pictures of it from the back, under and around it. Anyway, here is a quote from the Antique Stove Hospital which describes the Our Glenwood No 111
Our Glenwood #111 heating stove. This is a Glenwood coal heater with the recirculating base heating option. These stoves take up only a spot about 2 feet square but can heat an entire home. The smoke travels up the barrel then down between the inner and outer barrel, then around the base, then up a pipe in the back. It all adds up to about 12 feet inside the stove. All the heat possible is radiated into the home rather than up the flue. A powerful, efficient stove from the era that marked the peak of coal heating technology. Coal burning technology peaked around 1910 when oil became the preferred fuel.
These are amongst the most fuel efficient coal stoves known

It looks like the collar takes a 5" pipe. I would find a 5 to 6 inch adapter. I am quite surprised that the stove doesn't take a 6" pipe. I would have sworn it would.
It is important that you cut the hole in the back pipe in the right place. Hopefully, who ever restored the stove marked the correct spot for the pipe collar to go. If not, I would find out exactly where it is supposed to go before I made the hole in the back pipe.
Again you are going to be amazed at how well this stove will perform.

Well, it looks like you are going to sell it. I hope somebody here on the Forum buys it from you.

So, now we've got it figured out. I found out the No 111 is a base burner designed for Anthracite coal as its fuel whereas the Base Heaters are made for wood, Bituminous AND Anthracite. Base burners for hard coal often had the lower damper to create an after burn to make sure all of the coal gas gets burned up.
The exhuast also follows a different path with the No 111 and similar stoves than the Base Heater design. The smoke goes around the sides of the ash pit instead of under the ash pit like a Base Heater. The result is still the same however, you get over 90% of the heat into the house and not up the chimney. The No. 111 is yet another example of the brilliant design concepts that marked the peak of stove making around 1900.

There are no new problems, in this field, just people that remember the solutions are getting few and far between.

Maybe emisions standards could cause new problems, modifications.

Mason,
to answer your ? on my Glenwood , Mine is NOT a baseburner / baseheater it just has the indirect draft tube with a flapper at the top of the tube to allow direct draft or send the smoke down the tube then out the flu, at the bottom of the tube is a clean out door for fly ash and that is all no damper or anything like that, your stove is more advanced than mine and yours is a Beautiful stove! I hope ya hook her up looking forward to pics!

How are you making out on getting the 111 installed? Hopefully, it is going smoothly for you.
