I'm glad you like the Stanley Argand Videos. Thank you very much. I will take your musical request under advisement when I make the Glenwood Videos. I wanted to wait until I got my basement finished,but; since I am now a Gentleman of Leisure (laid off) the big projects will have to wait.
I would say both the No. 6 and No. 8 are about equal in efficiency. If I push the No. 6 I believe can produce in the 100,000 BTU's per hour plus category, but; I never run it that hot. I think under normal circumstances you get around 60,000 to 80,000 BTU's per hour out of it. It heats the basement and two stories above it to the point that you can sleep with a light blanket. I don't know how much heat I am losing through the basement walls as they are cinder block right against the ground. I know the snow melts about 3 feet away from the perimeter of the house because of it. So it is astounding how well these stoves perform. I can stuff 80 pounds of coal in it if it Nut size, about 60 to 70 pounds if it is Stove size. The No 8 is a bit larger and I don't quite know what the capacity of it is. But TRUST me, either one will be more than adequate to heat almost any house.
