Ha! There's a petit Godin on the front. I wouldn't't have known that before I came here to Neppa. Oh dear, starting to feel smug and superior. I'm a little happy because we've gone below zero but with the Tiger going we're fine. Do you know that over the period of little more than a year electricity rates are up 400% here? I have better things to do with my money than fund a bunch of crooks.
:D
400%! :shock: Simply awful that companies can get away with that. Have they given any reasons? You'll need your Glenwood, and coal more than ever, to save some long green, (Is money green above our borders? :oops: ) I hope you guys can get things ironed out up there.
As for the book, it has some B+W photos, kinda dated, but fun if nothing more. And the language is pretty simple. But the author does touch on a few good points.
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

"While Porter says there are a number of factors that contribute to rising energy costs, like replacing aging infrastructure, purchasing renewable energy and phasing out coal-powered generation, he believes there’s only so much the economy can handle before businesses and consumers begin feeling the consequences.

“Let’s just say it is going to do very serious harm to the Ontario economy if we continue to see double-digit increases in electricity rates,” said Porter."
It's just a big money grab. There is no real excuse, and their profits should take the hit for their stupidity not their consumers. A lady up the road has gas appliances and only pays the delivery charge. But...that's over 100 a month for nothing?!! Gas lighting?
Around here many only had electricity well after the war, and I'm from Quebec and it's still relatively cheap there. Oh well... Where there's a will there's a way. The heat will be covered now, and I 'll try to think of something else for electricity. I'be been looking at the energy posts at Neppa. Hmmm!!!

Finally lit up! My son helped me move the woodstove and all that stuff and then I shut the top all the way and the bottom two almost all the way and watched the flames through the window and then I realized that I have no damper. So... I guess I had better put one in. Can I wait for a warm day? Or will it be bad to run it open for a week?
And the handles I sent for are wrong so I called Wonderful Wilson and he said yes he has a handle for a Glen but that I can use vice grips until I get one from him. :D
And my son said that actually it looks good!!
A lot of slow absorbing of info here went into this. Funny, I feel like a different person since it is running, but still very grateful. Thank you very much.

As long as you can control the fire with the primary air intakes you can get along without the damper.

Just one. It was more of the dog because it's her spot. I know, it's the hearth from the woodstove but I'm not changing anything 'til summer. Very defensive, lol. It is so amazing though. I was up at 5:30 to check and it was I would say over half full still after six hours. Just so awesome to hear crunching turning the grates. I'm so pleased I could...squeak but I've been singing my favorites hymns I'm in such a good mood. And I think I've kept all advice in mind. Hoots Mon!!!

Congrats on a wonderful stove. I see that it didn't take the dog long to know it's a good one ! :D

And, I'm sure you'll love it even more as you gain more familiarity with what it can do.

Have you gotten a coal shovel yet, or are you still using the "black-hand shovels" ? :D

Congratulations the stove looks great! Can't wait to hear how it is heating your home and the economy once the damper is in place.
never yell through a screen...you'll strain your voice.

Thanks.!!! It has been -35 Celsius here, about -31 Fahrenheit I think, and right now it is 70 in the coldest courner of the house and I found the dog panting and had to move her.
I'm comfortable at 62....
Gone through at least three bags but unusual weather, not always like this. Spit test on stove pipe no sizzle but the firepot glows(last night). Nothing else though and I've read in the posts it's okay. Or that's how it sounded....
Planning beige to go with floor since the hearth will be larger.
I found a scuttle and shovel right in town for the Tiger which makes me think I'm not the only one in New Pennsylvania burning coal. No one talks about it but it's generous heat, coal heat, and I know an older neighbour's father used coal with a metal funnel around it for the chicks so it has been here. Silly Canada.

Nice. Looks right at home. Spend a little time , mothers aluminum polish and some elbow grease and polish up those trim pieces. I can tell that those shiny bits will shine like the dickens. Congrats on getting it home and up and running ....

Oh, thanks! I was wondering what to use on it. Tried...WD-40 on the top but not really good.

Yeah, WD40 will clean goo, but not tarnish.

Nickel plating is rather hard, so you can also use a chrome polish that you can get at any autoparts store, or the auto section of stores like Wal-Mart.

I use Turtle Wax brand chrome polish, that I get at Wal-Mart, on my customer's cars and the nickel on my stoves. It works very well as a tarnish cleaner and because it's meant for exterior use on cars, as a wax to help prevent more tarnish.
