The dealer has a Modern Glenwood 114&116.They are both direct draft stoves.They have no refractory lining in those stoves either,that I can tell.
Would the Oakdale be a better bit burner than the Glenwood,because of the raised secondary combustion places around the fire pot? I'm not putting down the Glenwood.

You guy's here on the forum that have these older beauties,are the reason that I'm looking at them.Older is better.
I wish we could make things like this in this country again.This was fine craftsmanship at it's best.


Hman,
Either of those two Glenwoods would work just fine for you too with bit coal. Especially because they are direct draft models. Mine has the divided back pipe option (see pix) which was especially for anthracite use. I fire it up in direct draft but once going close the back pipe damper and the MPD and it keeps allot more heat in the stove and not up the chimney.
I love my Glenwood and I like the grate system of geared bar grates better then the round dump type. Both will work fine but the the bar grates shake allot faster. The down side it maybe they drop a little more coal if you get too aggressive shaking but if you get used to doing it right they work really well. I really feel like any of the stoves you've looked at will do a great job for you. I'd look at each and see what size you want and which one appeals to you. I would go with a 14" pot for your size needs. That will give you plenty of heat and you can run it lower and not have to crank it up to meet the demand.

I'll let you guys know what I decide on.I'm in no hurry on getting another stove,maybe I can find the right one and do a rebuild on it.
I appreciate all of your info.
This forum is the reason I switched from wood and got a coal stove.Alot of great information on here.

I know this dealer as I have bought a couple of stove's from them, Including my old #6 and a bunch of stove parts. They are great people however look at the stove very carefully before you buy it. There "resto's" are or often lacking. Again Great people but know what to look for and be aware that they may not have torn the stove completely down. Probably a money thing.. If you are not scared to do your own tare down go ahead. They have a St. Nicholas I would love to have from them but I could tell it was never torn down even though they said it was.

I agree with that Jason. Super people but don't assume anything. I think it's because the owners are old and the guys working there cut corners on occasion.

I found a Modern Glenwood 114 on craigslist.It needs work,which is ok,but the ring around the outside fire pot is cracked,and the firepot is seperated from the base.Can't tell if it rusted or burnt out or just need to be reset in the base.I'm going to check on it this weekend.
