When you say coal, do you mean anthracite or charcoal? It's surprising to see a so big stove burning at a very low heat output. The stove is certainlay able to run at a very high and very low heat output.
It's the smaller stove he was testing not the #6 Baseheater. The numbers are sometimes confusing but I think It's the same size as my Star Herald 112 with a 10" firepot. Never the less, it's quite amazing that both of his stoves have a very wide operating range. I hope my Herald operates even close those ranges. I'll be quite happy.
The stove looks great! How is the No.6?

stovehospital wrote:Just an" I told you so!" from Emery. For years people passed by the 109-111 Glenwoods to look at other stoves. Once they try one they are usually amazed at the efficiency and the power of the stoves. I use a Magee Vendome in my shop. You saw it when you visited. That stove can be running at 600 on the barrel and you can reach up above the damper and put you hand on the stove pipe. It is about as hot as a nice blueberry muffin. My son heats a two bedroom ranch with a Spicer base heater and burned a total of 55 Gals of oil last year. The coal is reduced to dust in most cases and the fire just keeps on going. Now I am having trouble finding enough of these base heaters for my customers. AS time goes by nyou be more and more impressed with the design and efficiency of these stoves.
