I have a question about the finial, did the entire thing get coated ? The top with the name and the side pieces look like a different finish, maybe its just the picture or glare or ?



Thanks, the balls are copper and the rest is nickel..


Now that is a great looking finial for sure.

Yeah, I never would have thought of doing it in copper like that. But when researching this stove I found one photo like that. I wonder if it was a factory option or someone just restored one like that.. But I like it :D

By the way, young man; I gathered by a previous post that you have been running the Glenwood 6 and haven't said anything else about it or posted any pictures of it. I want to hear about what is happening with your stove. Don't make me have to pull this car over!!

:whistle:
Yes Sir Mr William, I have in fact replaced the Summit with the 6 in the basement. I have not addressed it yet with posts or pictures because you know how women (the #6) get when they arent looking their best. I did take the entire base apart to clean and reseal everything and put it back together with new hardware. I have not replaced the spring on the secondary air control yet and I really havent done anything cosmetically except sandblast and polish a few parts. I also replaced the 2 center grates, sealed all the doors with high temp rtv, and resealed all joints throughout.

The burn times are long and easy to obtain, the stove is very forgiving and easy to operate, the heat just rolls off of it and I cant even hear it running :funny:

Just between you and I :secret: , this stove has been cruising in the 250* to 300* range and from the unfinished basement it keeps the first floor in the 70's, of course the basement is in the 90's. I have not gotten the air circulation down yet and dont want to cut anymore holes in my floors, but next year when she is on the first floor I have zero doubt it will heat this house on the coldest of days with ease. I can get this stove to idle around 175* when the outside temps are in the 50+ range and it just keeps burning on a load of coal. Thanks for the recomendation, your claims are spot on and I am sure once I get alittle more time running it I will be even more amazed.

I will post about it this spring or summer when I completely refurbish the stove mechanically and cosmetically and install it upstairs where she can be the focal point that it deserves :up: .

Now you get to live on Coal Stove Easy Street too. Remember your Glenwood is putting out all of that heat for a minimum of coal consumption. Once you get the real hang of using it you will be really proud of how it operates. Now that makes six of us on the Forum that have a Glenwood No 6 Base Heater.

Well it's almost done. It's fitted, all the holes in the cylinder have been drilled. The next step will be to disassemble it, paint the cylinder and polish some of the parts. Then it will be ready to install.

Yes but you made a really nice stove and you can be proud of the results. These stoves have a very good reputation in all the ways.
Hope to see it on the job as soon as possible!

Grumpy,

I was wondering where you were hiding with this thing. Just want to say awesome job! The before and after is just amazing. Can't wait to see how she runs, but I suppose that won't be till next season? Again great work and congrates.
