A buddy that worked for me for many years in the US Army has an appointment on Monday with Doug at Barnstable Stoves. He is going to look at 2 different Glenwoods that Doug has. The Base Heater club keeps growing and growing. How sweet it is! :D


Excellent. Tell Doug that I said hello. Tell your friend also about us here, so he can find out he will be in good company.


I will let Doug know you said hello. Doug e-mailed me last night and said he has a new Barnstable Stove T-Shirt for me. What size are you? I will try to get you one also. I will have my friend sign up to NEPA forum this week.

Chad


Thank you very much. I am flattered. I am about a medium size. Please tell me what Doug says when you ask for the T-Shirt.

Thank you Steve.

A couple of nights ago it was 18* F and I had the 2 lower primary dampers opened less than 1/16 of an inch, the secondary air damper was completely shut and the MPD cracked open in the stove pipe and when I went to bed the stove was 285* F at the top of the barrel and 125* F on the stove pipe. When I woke up in the morning all temps were exactly the same expect the house was 79* F. My wife was very, very :D happy.

I forgot to mention I got 1000 lbs of bulk chestnut size anthracite delivered in my driveway for $50. It was leftover from another delivery and the driver sold it to for a great price. The Glenwood No. 8 really loves Egg and Stove size but I just mixed it in and it burns really well.

Yeah Chad that is excellent knowing that there is nothing that the New England winter can throw at you, that your Glenwood won't handle! :D

Awesome deal on the nut coal too! I had a couple tons mixed in with my stove size too. It fills in some spaces and simmers along quite nicely. I just shake it a little less vigorously when there is allot of nut in the mix since my blaschak nut is on the small size.

Next year I am going to order 20 tons of Egg Size Anthracite from a mine I found in NE Penn. The No.8 will burn forever with the firepot full of that stuff. I called 15 mines and only found 2 that still produce Egg size. They told me that egg size was popular 100 years ago. Go Figure!

Have you tried burning straight egg size in the No. 8?

Hi Rob
I did and the burn just egg size a few times and heat output and burn time was great. The response time of the fire when I would adjust various dampers was much quicker than when the fire pot is full of chestnut size. I have only had this big old girl since this July and I have learned so much about her already. I can only imagine how in tune we will be with each other by next May.

That sounds right Chad. The smaller the coal size the slower the response time generally speaking. Sometimes though, the larger sizes will burn hotter and faster too, so you'll get slightly less time between refills. Depends on how tight it's packed in there. This is just a rule of thumb deal. Bigger air spaces between the pieces and all that.

I would try some stove size before you set your heart on egg...it might be a good compromise on both ends.
