Thanks Steve. You know, all the time the stove was in the small living room, my wife didn't like it very much. Even before buying it, on the photos she was telling me that the stove had too much works/details on it...and I always told her that was from the artists creativity to give the stove a different look and probably for some practical and efficiency reasons... Now that the stove is in the ""barn"", she begins to be more ""respectful"" for the ""horse"" :lol:

Yes Pierre, I know just what you mean. Kim is the same, always says the stoves I show her are nice but to fancy for her! She only even looks at them because I like them I'm sure! But this means when we are out at a pottery or some other shop I have to act like I'm looking at it too! I just say, Too fancy for me! :lol:

Glad to see you found a Baltimore Heater Pierre, you sure found a nice looking one too!

The install is comming along very nice, cant wait to see it all finished and heating and hearing all about how it works for you.

Thanks for the help about how to react with the wife. Always something to ""learn"" on the forum :lol:
You know Steve sometimes I said to myself that we could have a subject named: Antique Stoves (not a separated section, still in the Hand Fired Coal Stoves section), all the peoples having an antique stove would be on a list showing a photo of the stove, name and maker and a few details of the stove..., one thing would be great is to have a sort of owner numbers so we could know how many members have an antique stove. Are we 15, 20... now???? And if someone want to ask questions or look for infos on antique stoves, he wouldn't have to search hours to find it. :?:

Thanks echo67. Very happy to get you back on the forum.
I also hope to see that ""horse"" on the job as soon as possible so a good beer/drink could be appreciated :roll:

Just to have a better sleep, I put a H.T. refractory cement over the the steel liner I made for the stove. Ant will be in a ""plush"" fire pot :lol:
Now the stove pipe is in place and I put the old sides used outside of the faux-foyer on each sides of the surround to see how that will look. They are too short but give an idea for the final look :arrow:

It looks perfect there. I'm really anxious to see the first real fire in it and find out how well it does.

Well, yesterday nite, I made the first fire inside the house, but only with small pieces of wood, some charcoal pieces and a couple of eco- logs. Just wanted to cure the refractory liner and see how the stove was reacting, eco-logs produce a lot of heat and it could be hard to control the stove not to go too hot. But I was able to keep the stove at a steady 400*F for a couple of hours. The stove worked very well in direct and base burnrning modes. Looks like the radiant and convection systems work very well in the alcove.
Not exactly the REAL fire with ant but I plan to burn a few weeks at evening to practice with the stove and all the levers on it :)

I bet you can't wait to put the Anthracite in it, looks great too !

There has to be a stash of those "Baltimore Heaters" around here somewhere, I just need to find it.

Pierre, Yes it is hard to tell using wood about how well the control of the stove really is. I think that the fact that you could hold the stove at a steady place speaks well for good control with ant. Mine was also like this with cedar and scraps from the wood shop. These are all very dry and really want to burn hot. I could keep mine at 350 or so also and feel like that was good. When I put in some maple kitchen wood later on it would stay right around 300 with the the bottom vents one closed and one just a hair and the secondary on the load door cracked a bit. For me, the fact the it didn't run up higher means it's good and tight for control with the ant.

Thanks echos67. I had to put an hold on me not to drop a few pieces of ant in the Sunny but tried to be a ""good boy"" and keep on waiting a few time butttttttt :?:
I don't know if there are some Baltimore around you but those I saw before the Sunny were very far from me like in Texas, Whyoming, Washington... and in curious condition...But I'm very surprised to find as much High-tech in a so old unit from 1874. The convection system is quite something to see as the base burning gases path...and a Baltimore Heater was exactly what was needed for my ""alcove"".

Your stove will certainly perform very well and be nice in you house, the deco is just the best for that kind of unit.
I used eco-logs cause they don't produce very much black smoke (on the mica) and have a high heat output, they are so dry that in some stoves they are quite hard to control, so the testing seems to be good for now. The time will tell for the future with ant burning but like you said we seem to be on the good hum-hum Coal Burning Easy Street, as said from an Antique Stove Poet :)
