Need a grate for "Our Glenwood 109" base heater parlor stove

PostBy: grthomas On: Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:43 pm

If anyone has grate for my "Our Glenwood 109" base heater parlor stove, I would love to buy it. The grate is now broken into 4 pieces, and having it recast would be expensive and I would have to contend with the shrinkage. Please send me an email if you know where I can get one. It would be greatly appreciated. I have been in contact with The Stove Hospital, in New Jersey, and still hoping that they can find one, but so far, no luck.

Email address: gdlt@fairpoint.net

Thanks
Gene

Hey Keith
That grate from Woodsman Parts Plus looks close.
I'll have to check that site out.
Thanks for the tip.

It shouldn't be that hard to replace that grate. It is a fairly standard size. I have a Glenwood No 9 which is the same stove except that it is the older version. The dimensions are probably nearly the same. If you need any help with the stove at all please ask.
You will find that this stove is amazing in every way. You have one of the most versatile and efficient stoves ever designed. Let's see some pictures of it.

Here's a pic of our Glenwood 109, while it was still hooked up before the grate broke. The stove is all original, except that I've replaced the sheet metal cylinder twice, and replaced the refractory once. Now that I have to replace the grate, I'll have to replace the refractory again. Too bad, the refractory was in there for keeps and did not come out easy. I bought the refractory at Bryant Stove Works in Thorndike, Maine, about 8 years ago. It was about a 1 inch thick slab, about 8-10 inches high, very heavy, compact, clay-like material with some knind of sandy texture. and was rolled up inside a plastic bag. The material was wet when I installed it in the fire chamber and I had to pack it into shape with a hammer. It was not easy to cut. If anyone knows what I'm referring to, please let me know, as I need to buy another package, but don't remember what it was called or the manufacturer.

That looks like the stuff, Onedollar. Also Emery has some at the stove hospital that he'll sell you. You can get it from just about any refurbishing place. The Love Barn, in Orland , Me. also carries it by the 50lb box.

As far as the grate goes, measure and look at the woodsmanpartsplus replacements. If they don't have the one you need, have yours recast at Tomahawk Foundry, Wis or Auburn Stove works in Me. I had one done last year. Cost was about $150 for both the fork and grate. Put your old one back together with some epoxy and add a little bit to any area you're concerned about shrinkage. They do shink about 1/4" or so depending on size.

The thing you want to save is the sliding, center tongue. You might not be able to find a new replacement with the two little holes in it for the shaker handle. Using that detachable handle makes shaking the grate so easy.

To all

Thanks very much for your input and advice. i finally had a new grate and dump arm made by the Auburn Stove Foundry in Auburn, Maine, owner Mike Blais. Mike did a great job. I would definitely recommend their work.
