Had I not done mine myself, Emory would have. The reason I ask about contact is that Emory is usually flat out doing stoves at the time of year and e-mail is a tough way to get ahold of him. You are best off phoning until you speak to him. Getting it done fot this heating season will be tight. That said, you've got an excellent stove and will be very happy with it. Thwe repair to the floor pan was very well done and it's integrity looks sound.
Based on my dealings so far, I agree with everyone here on Emery's expertise. He recommends I do not buy the stove based on the condition of the repairs done to it. He cites examples of this model glenwood stove being prone to warping and damage in this section. I'm attempting to negotiate with the buyer again, I need to revisit her home and take a second picture of the bottom pan. But this time with the plate that is removable from the inside of the ash compartment removed. Removing that plates reveals the other side of the stove bottom plate . I have a feeling that he won't like the stove again even with the updated pic. I'll post it here for the forum's consideration too.
Joe, Your probably right if you showed him the pix of the repair and he said not. He doesn't usually change his mind. That said, the stove (repair) looks pretty good to me and allot better then some I've heard about (based soley on the pix of course) (Ask Keith about that) Echo 67 and in fact I believe Keith got his from Emory but the caviot being unrestored and with full disclosure. Does Emory have anything he recomend that could replace your #6? What size of a space are you trying to heat?
Like you, I was also on the lookout for a #6 but eended up settling for the Modern Oak 116 that you see in my avatar. It has a divided back pipe that extends the exhaust path similar to what the #6 does and is the same sized stove (16" fire pot) also. I expect my stove to be comparable in heating ability or at least close enough to the #6 that I bought and restored it. You can see the restoration thread on page two I think "My new Glenwood Modern Oak 116".
Anyways what I'm getting at is while these are the Rolls Royce of hand feds, there are allot of Bentley's, Caddy's etc...out there too. Emory might have something else comparable like a Wings Best, a Quaker, a Herald, etc.. that are similar stoves and great examples of some of the best coal stoves ever made.[/quote]
Steve. Emery cited some equivalent models that heat as well as the Glenwood I am interested in. He steered me towards some brands that came after the glenwood but they built learned on glenwood's shortcomings. So I have a few models/brands to research; my search is no longer limited to only glenwood base heaters.
I have no intention to use this stove right now. This will go in storage in my basement and be installed in my next house. Current house is a two family house with 2 natural gas boilers and 2 natural gas water heaters all exhausting into 1 flue. There is no room to install this stove at my current place but I'm sure I will eventually find a use in the next house.
