I have managed to get a few pictures of my new Glenwood No 9 Base Burner. It is the precursor to the later (post 1905) Glenwood Modern Series, 109's and 111's which are much more common. This stove dates from around 1900. This design ran from around 1899 to 1904. It has all the options of the high end base burner that it is. It is the smallest in the Base Burner line. It's about 45 inches tall, I have yet to get all the dimensions of it, but; I will soon. The firepot is 10 inches in diameter and 16 inches deep. It holds 30 pounds of Nut Coal. It can go 16 hours between loadings. According to Emery, there is something about the way these are designed that make them not only efficient, but; extremely so. I don't need another large stove since the Glenwood No 6 does most of the heating. This one is for the beginning of the season and the end, when it is super cold. And whenever I feel like lighting it.

I need to finish polishing it up and check all of the seams. The stove has been sitting in a barn for awhile, however; besides a good polish and inspection it is ready to go. It has a 5" collar and the thimble is 8" I already have a 6" to 8" pipe adaptor stuck in the thimble, but; I would would like to replace the current thimble with a 6 inch one. I wonder if the 6 inch would just slip into the 8 inch one or will I have to break out the existing one to put in the 6 inch?

I forgot to mention, the Stanley Argand is going to go into a nice sun porch that is going to be part of an addition to the house, so it is still wanted and loved.

Very nice stove William. Small but looks big compared to the S.A.
Waiting for the next video!
P/S Did the Andes had problems or you just decided to get this Glenwood?

Thank you Nortcan, even though The No 9 is much larger than the Stanley, they both hold about the same amount of coal. It just goes to show the wide variety of stoves that were available then. I have high expectations for this stove, if it performs anything like the No 6 then it will be another super star coal burning machine.

I decided to trade the Andes because it was missing some critical pieces to make it functional and it was a big stove. I could've made it work, but; the Andes is in the best of hands now. I wouldn't have let it go to just anybody. I know that it will be properly restored and saved from oblivion by someone who will take care of it. The Glenwood is just the right size for where it is going and for what I need it for.

Thanks franco b, of course there will be much more information about how this stove performs once the leaves fly and the frost comes. All I can say is, "Come on October!"

Will,

Looks like a beauty! Similar to a 109 Our Glenwood which is probably the backpipe version of yours or close to it.

I think that it is going to be an outstanding coal burner. When I "found" mine,(Herald) it was sitting in a garage, having been taken out of service a couple of years prior. The new home owner just set it there as it was without ever even cleaning it out. I was amazed at the ash I found in that pan. It was nothing but a fine powder with not a piece of coal to be seen. I tried to get rid of what I could before placing the body in the truck, but driving down the road initially up at speed, I could see a cloud of ash in back of me! Anyway, hope to have mine home next Sat.

I'm willing to bet that your 9 is going to pump out some serious heat for it's size. It's certainly a handsome stove and looks to be in mint shape! Congratulations of a fine score!

Thanks everybody. Of course there will be a lot more about this stove to come. I didn't take more pictures of the bottom of the stove because I ran out of polish before I could finish it. :oops:

I think it is a very tasteful stove, like all the Glenwoods. It has a dignified, stately aire about it, just like it's big sister down stairs.

Will,

I'm curious, how many stoves do you own? How many are used at once? What's your schedule like with more than one stove running at the same time; do you shake down and recharge at the same time for each stove or different times?

You are a wealth of information on these old base burners. I'm always amazed at the amount of knowledge you seem to have about each stove as they are asked about. I find them beautiful myself but don't have the room nor the type of house to warrant one. I've always needed something that has a high BTU to keep my drafty house in check during the winter.

A thing of beauty, made when each & every craftsman involved took pride in their finished product.

I currently have three. I only use two of them. Mostly the Glenwood No 6 handles the heating. I use the second stove in the fall, spring and when it is really cold. These stoves are very easy to operate, the No 6 is tended to at most twice a day, most of the time only once a day. The smaller stove will probably require tending twice a day. As far as my knowledge goes, I still have a lot to learn. I am learning all of the time. I will tell you this, as far a needing a stove that cranks out enough heat for you, the big Base Heaters can not be bested, not to mention they do it with much less coal consumed per BTU produced than the average stove. I have a deep respect for the minds that created these stoves and the craftsmen that made them. They were meant to be the center piece of the home and to last a life time. They are simply marvels of inventive genius, to me they represent the best of what the American Spirit was once about.

Well said! Just the casting alone was a work of artistry. Then these craftsmen took each casting, machined and hand fit them to each stove. Allot of work went into each and every one of these.

I agree William!

They are incredible inventions and I too plan on having several, even unused ones for future use.

I am looking forward to helping you with you City Glenwood No 14 this fall. You never told me if it has the back pipe or if it is one with a direct draft. I found out recently they came with or without the back pipe. Be sure to keep us updated on your progress with it.

We have several people who have gotten base heaters of various brands over the past year. I can't wait until we start getting all of these stoves up and running. It should be very interesting and we should have lots to talk about once the Summer is gone.
