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!!
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
Just between you and I
, 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
