William, you told me that I would be satisfied with the venerable 1874 Baltimor Heater, but you didn't told me that I would be So Much Satisfied, honestly I had difficulties to believe that the Sunnyside could win the contest from the ""New and Modern"" Vigll. The Vig was OK, but in every points, the Sunnyside is the best in class :idea:
Oups, excepted for the so good Vigll ash pan and lid :lol:
So if someone doubt of William's recommendations, just have a road trip up in Qc for a real testimony on how an antique stove can change all your life :lol:

Beautiful stove,

With the recent cold snap (it was 44degrees when I woke up) I thought about firing one of mine up. LOL

Hum, just too bad for me, both stoves are all clean and I sent baking soda in them and in the pipes/chimneys :doh: , so the cherry is on the cake but the house is a little cold with the electric central furnace on :cry2:

I was working outside this morning and a curious noise was coming from the neighbor's house. I thought it was the tunder but my wife told me no: it the neighbor entering its WOOD in the basement. WOW what a nice music for a coal/anth burner :) :D :lol:

WOW, 2*C/35*F yesterday night so impossible to resist 8-)
I put a layer of charcoal on some newspaper, I did put the charcoal before in a bowl containing a no-fume no-odor oïl lamp and let that soak for about 1/2 Hr. Then a few pièces of anth on the top.
Seems to work good with no fume no odor but after about 20 minutes the fire was not showing like an established fire.
So I took 3 pièces from an eco-log that I soaked with the same oïl lamp and placed them in the middle of the fire pot (there was no burning flame at that moment...). The good thing about oïl lamp is that it's not an instant explosive/agressive oïl. After a couple of minutes the fire was ready to get a layer of anth over it. The rest was the easy fill-up procedure as always.
Absolutly no odor, no black or white fume, nothing on the mica.
This morning the 3 storey were at the same warm temp (23*C/73.4*F) after a 13 Hrs burn time. The stove was at 300*F.
Nothing, absolutly nothing can compare to the STEADY heat output of anthracite, no temp. variation for the best confort.
Hope the same satisfaction to all the forum members.

Feels good, aye Nort? So are you saying your Highs for the day are barely above freezing? Or was that your nite-time temp? We're experiencing 30s at nite, but hitting well over 50 daytime. Course we're a tad farther south than you are. Have you got your supply of coal for the winter? just fired my stove yesterday, to test it out. It definitely makes things more comfortable according to the family.

day temp is about 5*C/41*F and night about -2*C/28.4*F.
The 2 bagged pellets anth (60 bags/pellet) are in since a few weeks. I buy 2 pellets / 120 bags every year but burned 95/ 40 Lbs bags for 6 months so the pile just get higher every year. :)
You'r so right when you say: "it definitely makes things more confortable...."

Tonight I shaked the Sunny after a nice 12 Hrs burn time. Stopped after a very short time as I saw a few glowing coals in the ash pan. Dumped a big 8 Lbs of anth on top...
But after about 15 +minutes, the stove was not able to recover. Just like a new kid on the coal, I began to do this, that... and you all know what :mad:
I was afraid to shake again cause the fire was very low and stove at 125*F. But I did , after 15 minutes the blues were dancing and all was fine.
All that to say that there is always some traps when burning anth. In fact last Summer I modified, yes again a modif...the grate and molded a liner in the front part of the fire pot. I wanted the front liner to go down about 1/2" from the grate and inward so the grate couldn't get jammed from pieces of coal falling into a very large gap.
Making modifs on a stove is just like having a different stove and thad means : learning :oops:

wow. Talk about your "sever" environment. If you can make something live in that heat, you've got my respect. Hope all works out well.

:D Hello Pierre,

I went to dinner last night for my Nephew's 21st B-day and when I got home I decided to light up the 116. Little cowboy charcoal, some fluid and a few scoops of stove coal and 20 min later the old girl was full and singing the blue's. ;) Tradtionally I usually wait till Halloween but with low 30s and 20's mat night and highs of 50 in daytime I decided to go ahead. It had nothing to do with the oil furnace coming on the last few weeks at night. :P
