Hi Guys - Attached are pictures of the Glenwood Oak 40 I have on layaway at a local antique shop.

What do you think about it?

No comments on my City Glenwoods I got last week?

Regards - Chris

Looks like a great stove. The back pipe looks newer than the rest. One grate looks like it was replaced by steel. Will look outstanding when refurbished.

Guys - Thanks for the kind words. Yes, one of the pyramid grates was replaced by the previous user.

I guess it was missing when he found it.

Unfortunately, he died of cancer recently, so I can't get any info on the stove's history.

The 40 size can be hard to find grates for. Get them recast soon and use the recast ones. Save what you have for patterns. Also, get a liner. Great stove.

Every time I look at these old stoves it makes me want to get one due to not needing electricity. I'd like one mainly as a back up but I really think I'd enjoy not using electricity & save a bunch of cash every winter.

I would imagine if these were mounted in a basement installation, you would need to have "calculated" floor registers for the heat to rise into the living quarters.(If pure radiant heat is the source.) And what if you owned a 2 story house, how would the heat make it to the bedrooms?

I plan to eventually use this stove in a large great room which will be our kitchen/dining room.

It's post and beam so it will have a cathedral ceiling. I'll put the OAK away in storage until the space is ready. I'm using a Grand Godin to heat part of the room now. I'm convinced it wastes coal, so I'm going to use my City Glenwood 12 to try it out until the room's ready. I just need to get it re-sealed.

Thanks all for giving me your thoughts - Chris

The coal savings that you will notice after you hook up the Glenwood will be quite surprising. The little City Glenwood should be able to get you through the rest of the year. The Oak 40 will be able to heat that area under any extreme of temperature.

someday I'll find one of these beauties around MA. someplace :P What I cannot figure out for the life of me is what purpose that top door serves? Is it merely to enable loading large logs instead of coal or is their some secret purpose I cant figure out?

Maybe the large door is for large coal buckets or coal hods? less spillage when loading?? That '40' looks like it will hold 60-70# of coal, so
each reloading would be ?? 40-50# of coal??

Mine has one big door (like yours if they were connected), but behind the door is a flapper that blocks about 1/2 the door. An additional barrier to keep the smoke inside, but allows access if you need it. Like when burning wood.
