Hi all.
Nothing to do with my stove but I didn't know that there were Triple Heater made.
Last week I asked to one of my custommers if I could take some photos of the stove. It's a big wood burner, bigger in life than on the photos, plus it was made in Canada :lol:

Hi all,
just want to say that the small base burner makes a very good job on the low heat output side. It runs at 110*/115* F on the side door and keep running 12 Hrs like that.
I just open the dampers before shaking/reload and the temp rises without any problem. So good to be able to run a stove on microscopic coditions :up:

Just wanted to show you the photos my son-in-law took from the Golden.
I must ask him how he made it. The antique effect is very nice.

nortcan...... I really like the 1st two photos in black and white. They make it look like they were taken back in the day when these type of stoves were common. Your going to have to give the Bride a little rest for a few months now. What are you going to do with all the free time you'll have now :?: :notsure:

buck24, thanks for the good words. What surprised me about these photos is the fact they were took from an I-phone.
The Bride is on the Stop position since a few weeks now. Only the Vigll makes a little heat to get the office in the basement more confortable.
For the free time: still looking for an insert heater. The ones I saw are very far or very expensive so these models are not as easy to find as an other antique model.

Probably one of the last post here.
After more than a good heating season, now I can say without any hesitation that: the Antique Golden Bride stove couldn't satisfy me more than it did.
So I must thanks William and all the other forum members who contributed/forced ( :roll: ) me to forget all my false opinions about antique stoves.
Now the Bride is sleeping with some little bulb heat to illuminate the room!
Have a nice Summer time and try to find a ""Sunny Side"" :up:

Thanks ellen. I almost forgot this subject :D . from the BB.
Before getting the ""Antique Contamination"" from someone I keep the name secret :D :lol: , antique stoves were my last opinion. Now they are my or one of my First ones.
Not just super heating machines but much more than that...........just like a H.D. is for the H.D. riders.

You shouldn't listen to a bunch of naysayers. They never owned one these stoves and know nothing about them. Many of the people here who now HAVE a base burner once HAD a box stove. None yet has regretted getting rid of them. These old stoves are simply superior designs, which were based on the actual science of combustion. They are easier to use, easier to maintain and far, far more efficient than what is made today.

Yes, these Antique Stoves are very surprising. So much high tech. for these times: no modern tools, no computers, just good :idea: ,and these :idea: had to work and they did. But most important, they still can perform after all these years of use.
Having an antique stove put back to work is one of the best move for the planet: "a natural recuperation".

I like the natural recuperation Pierre speaking of the earth I was wondering just the other day when an acquaintance told me how there carbon impact was diminished by an all electric house "connected to the grid of course" what is the impact of building and maintaining the infrastructure least the inefficiency of pushing the power down the line ! My calculation is 27000 lb of coal for electric heat vs 5600 lb of coal for my base-heater . this may have been discussed before but my two-bits worth anyhow.

you have done verry well with your irons my friend, restored beauty !
