On old stoves the vent in the top or loading door was often referred to as a check damper and of course it does act like one by bypassing the draft.


Oh yea, now that you mention it, I do recall hearing those vents called check dampers. I was thinking of other old stoves that had manual dampers installed in them, like the stove Nortcan just got. On the Glenwood, the front door has one of these in it, but it does not work like a damper. I use that a lot while running the stove to control the heat output. If I want a little more heat, I open that one up. I know everyone talks about under fire air, but my Glenwood doesn't seem to listen to any of the "rules"... Sort of like it's owner... HAHAHA

Ha,ha,ha, yep DJ it is a sort of "personal" relationship between stove and operator. I would swear I was the only person that could run mine was me! :lol: My brother told me one time when I was going out of town for a couple of days, that he would keep the home fires burning. I was going to make a check list then just told him nevermind, I'll put the dino boiler on for a few days. There were just to many details ;) .

Half-Pint, the stove looks very nice. Is it painted or black polished? Anyways, the result is super.

Looks great Half Pint. Doug is nice guy and knows his business. You're in for treat with that baby. What sized area/home are you heating with it? Try to get the placement right or as good as you can for maximum effect. If you have two floors you may consider a register or two also. They will heat a midsized house pretty well if you get the circulating right. Being in Kentucky, you won't have "as severe" winters as some of us Northeastern folks too. Best of luck and don't forget to post the installation pix.

I'm just waiting on the nickel for my Glenwood too and I'll be posting the restoration and install. They said round about the 26th so fingers crossed.

Am going to be heating a two level home roughly 2500 sq ft. I've got two cast iron registers I'm going to install along with 2 others that are equipped with fans to help with circulation. I'm not a expert by any means but I think they will cover it. I just need to decide on final placement of the registers. I'm really looking forward to having a real coal stove. I've got my work cut out for me. I'm building a brick hearth for it as I don't want it to just be on the concrete floor of the basement. It's a piece of working history and needs a place that is fitting for it.

Thank You :D !!! Everyone for all the kind words on my "new" piece of working history. I'm honored to be getting it and am really looking forward to getting everything set up and ready for it to be able to be back in regular service doing what it was built to do for many many years to come.

You are going to love your stove. You are especially going to love its unparallelled efficiency.
