Had a successful road trip today and picked up a Glenwood coal stove. The stove was located about 45 minutes south east of Freddy and just over a two hour drive for me..... The roads were very slick this AM !
On the ride home the roads were wet and covered with salt & sand :mad: The stove had some road grime on it so I gave it a quick wipe down with WD40 :sick: . Anyway the Glenwood is safe on my hearth with the Crawford and the Gibraltar.
The stove needs a complete set of grates and shaker system. The stove has a round grate and fork set up but I do not think this is what the stove came with from Glenwood.
Also, The indirect back flue pipe is missing the damper valve and the baffle.

If anyone has pictures of the proper grates and shaker I would really like to see them.

Thanks,
Eddie

Good looking Stove Eddie, The 116 looks pretty large, 16" firepot ?

Stove looks great!

I believe Emery would have the original triangular grates for the 116 and if not Woodman's would.

Also if you dip the nickel trim in ammonia diluted with water 50/50 it will bring it back to near perfect. Just let the trim soak for about 10 minutes and then rinse and dry.

If you can not find the rear pipe assembly I have no problem loaning the whole set up from my 114 so you can have them re-casted.

My daughter and her boyfriend will be taking the Gibraltar, ( this was a gift to them ), early this spring.

I hope to have the Glenwood ready for "my" new home by the fall. Not sure if the Glenwood will be heating on this hearth.... :|

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the great info !!! And your offer on the indirect backpipe loan to re-cast is unbelievable ! :shock: I will keep that in mind.....

Thanks, Eddie

No problem Eddie.

I added pictures of the grates for a Glenwood 114. which would not fit your stove but will give you an idea what you are looking for.

Eddie, did alittle looking around and found this picture of the grate frame from Woodsman Stove Parts, looks as your right the round grates are not original.

Maybe this has been explained before but why do they call it an oak? Is it the same design as a #6 or #8 and the other base heaters? This will help me when I go to buy a base heater.

Borrowed from Antique Stove Hospital
"Base heaters came in around 1905 and were produced by several firms in Taunton, Mass. The smoke travels up the main body, down the back pipe,under the ashpit, back up the back pipe , then out of the stove. It may travel 10 to 12 feet inside the stove so that a maximum amount of heat is transferred to the room. These represent the peak of coal burning technology and are serious heaters. They may burn coal or wood as desired. They also have lots of nickel trim and are impressive from any angle".

Borrowed from William
"Any stove that is an, "oak," stove is by definition a direct draft stove, not a base burner. Glenwood added the indirect back pipe as an added feature to greatly increase the stove's coal burning efficiency."

Hope this helps
