Grate Crank For Glenwood Oak

Hi All - I'm not sure the Glenwood Oak 40 I just bought has a grate crank.

Can someone advise me what I should be looking for?

Pictures would be very helpful.

Thanks - Chris

You can use a six point socket of appropriate size with short extension. This will work with the triangular grate ends. Try both inch and metric for best fit. Probably 3/4 or 19mm. Short T handle to shake.

Have a look on ebay also in antique stoves. I see quite a few in there at times. Almost any Glenwood triangle holed crank will work although my cookstove crank doesn't work on the 116. It's the right size but has a "stop" cast onto it for the front plate of the cookstove. Being a #40, you will have the grate ends protruding through the front plate and thus most cranks will work for you. My 116 has holes that the crank must fit through that makes it a bit more difficult.
Something like this may work, just ask the seller to measure the size for you.
