I probably need a special permit to post here, but does anybody know anything about this model/type of Glenwood? I encountered it in the (dimly lit) sub-basement of a commercial building in western MA. It looks pretty formidable, and it seems to be reasonably complete, but the mica/glass is shattered and the unit has been ignored for the past 40+ years. What do these go for in this type of condition? Anybody want one?

That is a much, much larger model of the Glenwood I have upstairs. I have the smallest one. I would be interested in the stove, but; I need to see the insides of it. It obviously needs a complete, total restoration. It needs a finial and a new barrel. The most important parts are the fire pot and condition of the base. If the firepot is cracked, no big deal. If any part of the base around the ash pit is cracked or corroded due to moisture.Then it is a very, VERY big deal. Do you have possession of the stove?

What is the number on the front. It looks like an 11 or a 13. Both a base heaters and wonderful stoves once restored. Either will heat a home with coal but the 13 is a little much for most homes. They are very efficient and will be the center of the home.

No possession yet. I'm buying a boiler from the owner of the building; when I was looking at the boiler he indicated a willingness to sell the Glenwood. I'm trying to figure out whether it makes sense to work something out with him on it. I expect to be back there within the next few days - will try to get some better pics including a closer look at the base, etc.

I'll take a look at the number the next time I'm there and will let you know.

Thanks for your comments. Those and wsherrick's pics actually got me to consider whether I'd have a good place for it, but it seems like it should have a more prominent place than I could give it.

It has been suggested to me by a girlie man who shall go unnamed that I'd get a bigger response from the hand-fired crowd if I announced a plan to put a conversion stoker under the Glenwood. :shock: I do have a nice one with a rotating pot (with which I've been planning to power an auxiliary boiler for DHW production, hydronic heat, pool water heating, etc.). The Glenwood would require a little surgery, but after being mounted on that rotating pot everyone would get a nice view of it! :lol:

Please remain calm, manly men, as no Glenwood was harmed in the making of this post. However, if you have any ideas regarding a good home for it, that could help to rescue it from a per-pound valuation.

Don't even make jokes about scrapping that stove. If I buy it, then it will go straight to Emery's for a restoration. But again, we need to see some more pictures of it. Don't worry about somebody here not wanting the stove. That rusty item is one of the most advanced and efficient stoves ever made.

You won't be in that basement, forgotten and neglected for much longer. I'm coming to get you.

Did this stove end up being the # 11 or the larger 13?

If you get it you wont need a snow blower. Just melt it.

I am completely satisfied with the two Glenwoods I have now and am extaordinarily impressed with how the No 9 performs. What's one more Glenwood in the family? When I take it to Emery on Friday I'm sure I will get the low down on what its capacity is. I don't have any measurements for it yet. All I know is that it is an identical stove to the No 9, just the largest model in that series.
