Keith, sorry for the 3* stove expression, I just meant a thirth (not even shure of the spelling...) stove, with the years I find the dictionnary heavier than before :lol:
In fact one of my ""dream"", maybe the 3* dream :lol: would be to master English just like you and all my Southern Friends.
Hope to see that beauty on the heating job soon.

Ok Buddy, I understand now :oops: . A third (3rd) stove is what you mean, where are you going to put it, what kind and when are you going to get it ? Your English is great, no worries.

I will be looking for a mica style like your "Bride" to restore next, always loved the looks of those stoves :D .

Keith, a third stove was just a joke, the only place I could put it would be on the outside patio :D .
Antique stoves are a good thing, now with the not very cold temp. and having just the Sunnyside working, it's still pleasant to have the house warm and have the Bride (stove) to look at :), plus during the warm seasons, these stoves still masterpieces in every houses they sit in. I may be a little ""antique stoves maniaco"" but that's it.
Keep on posting photos. Shure you would be able to restore any stoves you want to and you live in the country where they are, except the 2 ones I get here :lol:

Night and day. No question that Glenwood got it right in the design department.

Thanks Richard,
I agree the Glenwood has enough in the design but not so much it is over the top.

wow, what a great eye for detail and a great restore of a classic. You need to take that baby with you when you move (just tell the Realtor the living room will be put back to its conventional look and use prior to closing)... a job that will clearly be insignificant for you to do. Im impressed with your welding repair on that base plate (I think this was an impact fracture more then a flaw in the design though? unless water helped it cool at some LOL) Im not sure the heat generated here alone could have caused that? The firepot looks like the weak link to me in design, how did you repair that :shock: i assume their is some kind of firebrick or it simply a cast firepot? I cant believe how well you stick welded that stuff (artistry for sure)! You got skills man... great thread!

Thanks a lot for all the kind words.
The stove will definitely be going with when we sell and relocate in a few years, it has become family now !
The baseplate I can't tell you if it was an impact fracture or not since when I took it apart it was already broken, it could have happened on the trip to MD fr RI but who knows. My best guess was it probably happened when it reassembled and who ever did the reassemble tightened the bolt to tight and it cracked the corner off like that. The stove had been apart at sometime prior to me but who knows the story of that but it would be interesting. There were no signs of water that far down in the stove so I doubt it was water that caused it.
The fire pot is actually pretty healthy, I don't remember exactly how thick the cast is but that added with (in my stoves case the original firebrick) I don't have any damage to it, I did reline it however when redoing the stove so as to not take Ny chances.
Thanks again

Good riddance to that ugly pellet stove.
Your hearth completed with the stove proves an aesthetic point that I often try to make to skeptical people. Nortcan's installation of his Baltimore Heater also proves it. These beautiful stoves can fit into any decor. Your installation blends both the contemporary with a Turn Of the Century Piece and it looks completely natural and proper. Nortcan's stove is high Victorian Gothic, but how he put in the faux fire place and blended it together makes it look perfect. These stoves can go anywhere.

I remember when you told me way back when I would end up selling the pellet stove and I thought I may keep it around as a "just in case". I guess that was a "just in case" I ever bought a boat and needed an anchor and I ain't buying no damn boat :lol: ! A guy came down from PA over the fall and bought both of the pellet stoves and the ton of pellets I had on hand which paid for my Nickel and a fair portion of the hearth ;) .

Pierre has a beautiful installation for sure, and I always enjoy his threads.

Glad you like it Uncle William, and Thank You for all the direction and help !

No thanks on the boat Josh, good luck with your sale of it though.

Absolutely not a flake of snow, something seriously wrong here when Texas, Miss, Alabama, and now VA have snow and we are still in the mid 40's :lol: .

The temps had dropped down again to average for this time of year Thursday night so I started the No 6. It was working great keeping the house at 76 on the far end of the house where the stove is and 71 at the other end where we spend most of our time, and the stove was running at 250. I did notice a lot of cold air coming up from the basement out of the grate I cut into the door last year when the stove was down there. The basement steps where the cold air is coming from is between the stove end and the family room of the house so I will close off the grate to stop the cold air from coming up and maybe this will even out the heat a little more but 5* isn't bad. Putting the trim rings on made all the difference in the way the heat moves away from these stoves.The temps climbed back into the mid 50's today so it's time to open some windows, stupid winter here again this year !

Keith that pix says it all! If Chase likes it, you know you got a winner! He's already showing some size too! You have come along ways since the first little cylinder stove you found. :D
