The Golden Bride made a short but good heating season. The Sunnyside performed so well that there was almost no job left for the small B.B.
Looking for a way to help neutralyse the acid gases aggressive effect in the flue pipe/chimney, I sent some baking sode in them. Usually I drop the soda at the chimneys top when cleaning it but there is not very much left on the inside parts. I had a small sand blaster gun and used it to fume the chimney, the white soda fume was visible at the top of the chimney but not on the photos. I will check the chimneys interior later and give some feed back on the result.

Very bad news from the North.

The temp. is still too warm to light the Golden Bride, even for small fire.
If I only was in the colder Southern with you guys, I could enjoy some anth. fires :) :D :lol:

I'll trade you a few of those warm days for some cold ones Pierre ;-) My 116 has been going two weeks now and is on for the season.

Steve, do you run only the 116 or the range with it?
This year I started the heating season only with the Sunnyside first. Burning it for the past 15 days at low speed with anth.
My wife tells me that the downstair office has never been so confortable. In fact the 3 levels are.
Honestly we are 200% +++ satisfied with the recent 1874 Sunny. The only down point I got with it was from the grate jamming once in a while but with the last Summer modifs, the stove runs perfectly :!:

Burning the Sunnyside for 25 days tomorrow. No problem at all, the Baltimore does a super job. No more grate jamming.
Last year was almost a perfect heating 6 months season except for the shaking. Almost every night, I had to poke the front of the grate to get jammed pièces out of the fire pot's lower teeth. But with some grate modifs and a new front ref. cement liner going very low, about 1/2" from the grate and beeing much more vertical than before, all is working good.
Just a few right and left shakings and that's it. Also the bottom front of the liner arrives where the ash can drop right in the gaps in the grate. :)

Like you can see, I like to send some ""notes"" on how the stove performs after a few time. Not to bother anyone just to let you know how things are working out with it.
One of the thing I really love on the forum is to read that someone gets a ""new"" stove and all what is about it. Instal.,learning curve, good and bad expériences, modifs., questions..................so helpful....
But too many times we dont hear much about members on their coal burning expériences good or bad after a short time :) . In fact I think that there are NO bad expériences, just expériences.

nortcan..... happy to see that the Sunnyside is doing a good job for you up there. Should be getting some warmer weather for a few days. May have to let the stoves idle down a bit.
