I know where there is a similar stove, probably a base burner but a Glenwood or Modern Glenwood that I aspire to own one day. It sets in a basement looking nice and not being used. :o

Better to place an hold on that stove if you really want it, time goes by very fast...just a suggestion.

Tended at 7pm and filled for the night, stove at 350 degrees. This morning at 7am. it's pegged at (wait for it......) 350 degrees. ;) Really didn't need much of a fill either.


Welcome to Coal Stove Easy Street.


Really amazing control William. This morning after a shake and fill, I dialed it down since it's warmer today and it just holds wherever you set it. I have both primaries open just a hair and it's holding right at 200 degrees since 6am this morning. Circulates the heat amazingly well too. I have "tuned" my house a bit with the floor registers and now after 3 days I can see that this stove is going to easily heat the house and will only need the cookstoves assistance when it gets really cold or just because I want the cooker on.

Now you see what I have been saying for the past few years. I need to come up with a term to describe the instant when someone realizes just how easy and efficient these things actually are and it's not just a bunch of hype.

These guys making these stoves were really bright. :idea: Every details had a specific function. Plus they were using these products at that time to heat their homes, now many peoples sell things they don't even know how they work.

Been a week now William and it's truly and piece of cake to run this stove. Couldn't be any easier. It holds temp where ever you set it and does not deviate. After a few days to heat soak the house, it just cruises to maintain and even last night with a 30 degree low, the stobe was only at 350 to maintain 70 in the house. This leads me to believe that the stove will handle anything the winter here can throw at me. :D
The shake down couldn't be any easier too. Using stove coal I hardly drop anything into the pan but ashes and it's very quick (like the cookstove) versus the round dump type grates that were in the Herald. Those required allot more shaking. This is fast and easy and effective. :) Couldn't be more pleased with the performance of this stove.

Tim, Yeah it's quite amazing that this stove is heating the house so easily. It not been all that cold but after a couple days (been on for a week now) it's really only idling at 250 -300 to maintain 70 in the house and some nights have been 30 degrees. I almost wonder if the cookstove is going to get much duty this winter? ;) Of course I like it on for the cooking and distribution of heat in the really cold months but I can see this one just simmering along when the cookstove is added to the mix. :D
I feel like my coal consumption will not increae at all even though this stove is much larger then the Star Herald it replaced, due to the cookstove not being needed nearly as much. Time will tell, but I'm feeling the love for the MO116 ;)

Steve,
Great job on the stove! What a feeling of pride it must be (having totally rebuilt it yourself) when you walk up to that baby and she's humming along at 350°. And thanks for the documentary as you did it. If nothing else; we know we'll be warm this winter. :D

Thanks Charlie, Your right about that.

PJ, It's about 2500sqft of what I heat at least. The layout is quite good in some respects, but the house had add-ons that make distribution a little hinky on occasion. The original house was built more than 225 yrs ago and was designed to ne heated with stoves. It has a front and back staircase and floor registers that open or close in almost every room so you can tune the house up depending on what stoves are going. Three indoor chimneys smack in the middle of the house is ideal so the MO116 is in the middle. The kitchen, where the cookstove lives, was an add on in 1922 and is the hardest to get heat too with only the 116 fired. It is usually 5 degrees or more less than the rest of the house. By Christmas time, I expect to have the cookstove added to the mix through probably sometimes in March but last year I had to run both the little Herald and the cookstove most of the heating season. This 116 will handle it all for allot longer and thus the coal usage estimate being the same with a larger stove. 8-)

Steve,
I went back today and checked out the pictures again for the restoration of your stove and noticed the handle on the upper door is nickel plated. Did you remove the handle and send it off with the other parts ?

I would like my door handles plated as well but have reservations on removing them to send out because reattaching may get tricky and I doubt the plating company could get good quality plating if it was attached and the entire door sent out.

Keith, Yes I removed the the handle on the feed door for plating. I was going to do the ash pit door handle and primary damper covers too but decided against it. Less is more sometimes although I do like the look of the vent covers in nickel. I didn't want to mess with those vents as they were nice and tight and I would have had to re-rivet them.

I feel the same that less is more sometimes and I agree the vents being plated may be too much, at least for me :D

When you removed the handle did you heat the "peened" area on the back side that holds it in place and bend it straight to remove the handle ?
I am thinking reverse the process for reassembly ?
