Got The Glenwood Base Burner Installed & Tested Last Night

Got The Glenwood Base Burner Installed & Tested Last Night

PostBy: wsherrick On: Fri Oct 23, 2009 12:32 am

I know I should have pictures with this post. I'll get them soon. First a little update. I just bought a 2000 square foot, two story log house up in Pike County. Just got moved last weekend. The house sits up on top of a mountain so I guess it will get pretty cold around here.
Any way- my new baseburner arrived on monday and I got it put in on tuesday and lit it last night. I put it in the basement which finished with a nice high ceiling. The Stanley Argand is going in the living room.
Now, The baseburner holds 2 and one half scuttles of coal which I guess is around 60 pounds or so. I could have heaped it up a lot higher. It lit right up and soon I had long blue flames that made it from the coal to the outlet. I cut back the ash pit dampers to around 20 % of being fully opened and closed the direct draft damper so the stove would go into base burning mode. The stove was soon belting out the heat but the pipe at the chimney thimble was COOL ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR HAND ON IT. I loaded it at 9:00 last night and it was still going well when I got home from work tonight at 10:00 PM. A burn of 25 hours with NO attention at all. All I did then was crank the grates (they fully rotate if you want them to) and dumped another scuttle in the stove. It took right off.
The heat flows up the stairs into the kitchen area and then up to the bedrooms up stairs.
Needless to say, I am VERY pleased. :D
The date cast on the inside of the ashpit door says, June 1909. We will see how it does when it gets really cold. I don't think I have anything to worry about. Hopefully you all will want to see some pictures of it.

What kind of coal are you burning? I'm still trying to figure out how to get my baseburner, had a plan and it didn't work out. I can't wait to see your pics!!!! Great news about the burn time and stove pipe temp! Try and figure out how much coal you burn a week and when I get mine in, we can swap notes...
