The MO 118 or the Glenwood Oak 40 is the equivalent of your #8 in those series stoves and the 116 and or #30 is the size of a #6. They are less expensive yet are excellent heaters.
I can't tell you how pleased I am with my MO116. It's been on for 3 weeks yesterday and most of that was just idling along. Last night was low 30s and I kicked it up to 325-350. It's 73 down here this morning. I have only been using a single (at most) hod of coal a day also. This stove requires no babysitting and is truely a one match per season kind of stove.
My friend Al is coming over tonight to see our Glenwood No. 8 in action. I will let him know about all the options available to him. I am actually going to try to take a ride down to Barnstable stove with him on Monday. Doug is a great guy and he really took care of me when he found out I was a disabled Iraqi War veteran. I just got word that I officially retire from Active Duty in the US Army on December 24th 2012. Merry Christmas to me. It has been a long 21 years in the Army.
I will attach a photo of my wife and I at a Halloween party we had at our VFW Post. We dressed like we were at a party in 1909.
