Why don't you make a rental app. with the one bedroom? I'm shure that a lot of Canadian/Québecois would love to stay a few days/years :roll: in it, and plus with an ant stove :lol:


Pierre,

I was thinking about that actually. It has it's own entryway, electric meter and electric base boards in the rooms. Honestly, I thought that maybe a B&B sort of set up. A bed and breakfast room by the day or week, and/or a rental to an incoming College Professor at the local University where my Brother works. I would not want a full time "guest" because around here, once they are in, it's hard to get them out if something goes wrong. Also, I would rather it be seasonal and not have to worry about the winter too. You have to have extra insurence for rentals and they would never allow a rental to have an ant stove. In the summer, for weekly booking would be best. Second to that, an incoming Proff or a set up with a company that shifts Doctors and medical workers around in temp 3month positions. They provide furnished rooms for the people who have to transfer ever 3 months! Don't know how they do it. My Mom's Doc has changed 3 times now in the last year.

Yesterday I was fooling around with the grates again :P just can't seem to help myself with the obsessive compulsive disorder. :oops: The gears just stick onto the end of the shafts and are held there with a couple of cotter pins in a channel (versus through a hole). You have to have the correct large sized cotter pin or else the cog will wiggle a bit on the end of the grate shaft. Also, over 100years of shaking, I could see some wear on the teeth because they don't mesh 100% lined up, so that edge was "thinner" I decided to reverse the gears and see how that worked. After doing that and doubling up the cotter pins to tighten everything up, I reinstalled the rack with the 4 prismatic grates. They are very specific to which slot you install them in also, at least mine is. There is a long set and a shorter set specific to each other, meaning that the short one on the right won't work as the short one on the left. It's like 4 separate lengths so that they mesh in pairs versus all together.
Now that I've thoroughly confused everyone, I'll get to the real part of the post which was reinstallation.

These all have to be in place before you remount the frame back into the stove. It weighs about 40lbs I'm guessing and you have to stick your hands inside the ash pit and lift them up in back then the front and place two cotter pins that hold the front from dropping down. Kind of a pain on a hot humid day where your trying to "thread the needle" while holding up 40lbs with thumb and forefinger! There was allot of choice language flying is all I'll say. :roll: But everything is hunky dory now, so I'm happy. (for the moment) ;)

PS: Dang that's a good looking rig! :lol:

That's an added value that's hard to put a price on, but it sure is there.

The grate set up is one of the reasons I like the No 6. All of that stuff is in the front and is very easy to get to. I don't know why they would change grate design so much on two similiar sized and dated stoves, but; they did.

Yep I wondered that too William. Would have made more sense to have the gears in front. They actually have a slight recess in the back to accomodate them. It's possible that the base on the #6 had additional space upfront or the frame is a hair shorter. These 116's were manufactured a few year before the #6's. They probably came to the same conclusion when designing the base of the #6.
Made a difference when I "tightened" them up with larger pins. They don't interfere with each other now. I can imagine with a load of coal on top of them, it wouldn't have mattered much but me and the old OCD couldn't abide till I had them just right. ;)

The probably had OCD people complaining about the amount of backlash on the gears...so they moved them to the back. :P

Need to make me an ashpan for this baby. I had this one but it's a bit too small. The width is right but it needs to be about 4 inches longer. Anybody with a #6 baseheater or a MO116 let me know the dimensions and a pix if you have one. Thanks.

Unless you want to be factory-correct, I would just make the largest pan that will fit.

And you can make a pattern/model with cardboard or small wood as big as the ash pit can contains. After you can have one made according to the model.
I don't know why some peoples make ash pan not as big as possible...in fact I know the answer: they don't burn anthracite :)
