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.

William, tell me about it! I have been nuts wanting to get this stove back up and running! I only ever used to burn wood in it, so any advice on burning coal is greatly appreciated.


If you burn a lot of wood in these stoves, does that create much creosote in all that length of tubing at the back of the stove? Or do the temps stay high enough to prevent that?

I burned exclusively wood in mine for many years prior to going to coal. I never had a problem with creosote in the stove. I was also quite selective in my wood. I only burned well seasoned hardwood so creosote is not much of an issue under those conditions in any case. I can't speak to burning wet, poorly seasoned or softwoods...

Pepperman, there's also Barnstable Stove in Barnstable, Ma, Bryants Stove Shop in Thorndike, ME, and Good Time Stove in Goshen, Ma. There's another one I found too, but can't remember the name. Good luck on your search. Matt

Mill Creek in Kansas, and Ginger Creek in N. Carolina. Google antique stove restoration. You'll get some restoration shops. Matt
