I Made The Deal On The Glenwood Oak 40 !!!

PostBy: chrisbuick On: Fri Feb 01, 2013 2:44 pm

Hi Everyone - Well, I did it. I was able to make a Lay-A-Way deal for the Glenwood Oak 40 I've been looking at - the price was $800. I tried for $750, but no deal at that price.

Thanks to everyone who has given me great advice on this amazing monster of a stove.

It must weigh in at least 500 lbs. - Wow

The dealer says it will disassemble down to manageable pieces for moving.

I plan to finish paying for it the end of March. Then the question is where to store it and keep it dry till I can use it?

I was so excited about the stove, I forgot to take pictures. I'll get those the next time I drive over to Walpole NH and post them. The dealer said it draws so much attention in his shop, that he wants to leave it set up while I pay for it

Does anyone know of any Glenwood literature for these stoves? I just purchased an original Glenwood Cabinet Range 6 page booklet, which is very impressive. I don't suppose these exist for the Oaks?

I now own two Glenwoods - A City Glenwood (still to be picked up at the seller and the Oak - I'm real excited.

More later - Chris

Chris,
take a few cardboard boxes, news paper and a couple of old towels with you to wrap and place the parts in you will strip off, remove every thing you can such as doors (towels to wrap door to protect your Mica), swing top, skirts that are screwed on...etc.. to lighten the stove these parts lift off or are stove bolted on and remove easily in a few minutes with a screw driver and cresent wrench.
just make sure that when you pick up your Glenwood that you have the needed extra hands on site to lift the main part of the stove out of the 4 leg base, the main stove base with barrel/top are still darn heavy after removin all the parts and the 4 legged base is structurally extremely fragile you will see that when you pick it up and say to yourself HOW DOES IT HOLD IT ALL!, what I mean to say is that the 4 leg base is meant to be set in place and the stove set down in it as close to its permanent home as possible you cant just drag it around or you will break the casting.
one tip I can give you when you set it up is to set on a heavy pc. of cardboard or a area rug that way you can scoot it around on a few inches till you are happy with its position then gently lift each corner just enough to remove the rug or cardboard from under each leg ( I have found a rug the best for moving mine).
Best of luck on bringin your Baby Home!

Hi guys, the wife and I just purchased a Glenwood 40. After watching the you tube videos by William my mind was made up. No it isn't a coal boiler, but it will still let me play with coal and heat my house at the same time. Can't wait till its done being restored and I can use it. Very nice piece of art. Very nice to have this forum, lots of good advice. Good luck with your stove.

We got our stove from Doug at Barnstable Stove Shop in Barnstable, Ma. Doug is restoring it as we speak. Can't wait to get it home. Believe me i'm sure i'll have lots of questions. Also talked with Henry at Mcmanus Fuels in Barrington, NH. Going to see him end of the week. Seems like a good guy and cost per ton is the average for new england I guess. Just under $300.00 per ton Blaschak. Don't know if this is the right place, but a word of caution to other future newbies. The flue i'm using for the stove is the old kitchen stove flue. It was lined with tile some time in its life 1880 victorian. I wanted to see what I was in for so I dropped my phone done the flue with the video feature on. Although the tile looked ok, when they took the stove out (house now has electric stove) they covered the stove pipe hole with a piece of plywood and framed around the chimney. So now I have to get into the wall and fix it the right way. Bottom line make sure your chimney is safe. The oil burner flue is right beside this one. If there was ever a leak between flues I would think there would be a chance of CO getting into the living space. I plan on doing a post of my experience once i get everyhing hooked up and running. Almost every night I learn something new on the forum.
