BPatrick wrote:Ok guys, I think your hammering me...which is bullsh*t. I did update and said that I got a Herald Oak as I couldn't find a Crawford 40. It was the stove my parents had and I was going to continue to look for one as I'd need two stoves to heat this big old house. I made mention that my dad, who is getting older, was going to be staying at the house and I wanted the stove for him. Yes I did leave the forum for a while. I did, before I left, mention that I got the Herald and did get some great advice from you guys on here, I've thanked everyone, and still continue to thank everyone for their generosity. I did find a Crawford from someone who would be able to restore it this year, and it's almost done, but had some personal family issues that took center stage. My wife shortly after we got our Herald was diagnosed with cancer. It has spread considerably and with 4, 8, 12 year old kids at the time, I didn't know which way was up. I never intended to be a short term member, as I really enjoy interacting with all of you. I travel a lot for a living, had to change that job and care for my wife, be a dad and mom to young kids who don't understand why we don't do more things and wonder why mom doesn't want to do anything anymore. I promise any parent on here that has multiple kids, basketball, football, track, dance, the list seemed to go on forever, there wasn't any time in the day and I completely zoned out. I'm a great fisherman and really enjoy that, I didn't use my boat, quit fishing tourneys, quit going to car shows, all we did was sit at home and I just tried to be everything to everyone. I have checked my PM's from time to time, and never saw a message about it, and still don't have any message regarding a stove. Thanks, greatly, for finding one, but I did have my hands full, still have my hands full, and use this site to gather excellent information from some of the smartest coal burning gentlemen around. Your help has made a tough time easier. We would sit in front of it and watch tv or listen to jazz, blues was her favorite but she wouldn't listen to it as she thought she had enough blues. I will have a Crawford 40 and won't have a problem asking questions about it...if that bothers you, don't reply, but the cheap shots, are not classy, I'd expect that from other sites, not this one. Again, thanks in advance, for help most of you have given, and William, I never meant to blow you off...I was just really busy...I still have my hands full...just better at time management.

Like Lightning I don't understand either. I don't think anyone intended to hammer you.

You have been handed a tough deal and good for you, you are handling it so well and I hope and pray the good wishes and prayers of the members will help to give some surcease to your troubles.

Please, don't be offended. I am looking forward to helping you with your stoves. You have a great adventure ahead of you. I completely, EMPATHIZE, with struggling to keep a roof over your head and great tragedy. It has been a staple of my life, but; it would be about a 4 to 6 pitcher of beer story.
The reason I said what I said is a lot of times you have people joining up just to try to sell something quick or find out about how much the old stove out in the garage is worth. They don't really want to use the stoves or learn about burning coal.
So, please accept my humble apologies and we all send our best wishes to you and your family.

well said, sometimes things come across poorly in type or text and even those of us who use the forum each day socially at times take leave (even William... when I'm shouting for a week needing him to come on :mad3: LOL)
We do enjoy seeing new folks make threads & posts and allow us to see new things and we would always welcome that (be it now or 10 years from now). Sometimes in our enthusiasm of having someone new to share good times or tough times with, we joke with each other or make comment (Like me yelling at William "where are YOU, GTF off your Phonograph and HELPPPP"). All are Prayers go out to you and your family and we are here as your able or need...

I wish also to say that we welcome everyone in this forum, even the wood burners, oil burners, and the eco people. This is a light hearted group and sometimes the typed word comes across as harsh when unintended for that purpose. I have seen people battle it out on here and others go 50 miles out of their way to help someone. We are all so sorry to hear about your family troubles and the cancer your wife has.

Please accept our deepest expression of support for the change in life at this point. My prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Thanks guys for the support. I'm glad to be able to clear that up as I really enjoy this site and can spend lots of time on here...it's addicting.

William, I'm going to bug you with some questions as I've got 3-4 weeks until the stove is done. How much stove can this stove hold and how long, burning at 400 degrees does yours burn for. I know you have the Crawford 40 and I wondered about your burn times. The re-circulation pipe will be a new animal from a Herald direct vent. This burned well and put out great heat, but doesn't have the range that the base burner will have. I watched your video and noticed that you only set your mpd at 45 degrees on the Glenwood base burner. Is it because it's a base burner that you have it set like that. On my Herald, I have great draft and shut my mpd completely and have another set at 45 degrees. The stack temp is around 150. I couldn't run the Herald at a 45 degree mpd or it'd pump all the heat up the chimney and run too hot. I know that no 2 stoves burn the same and setups and all that but I'd like an idea of burn times as I would have thought the measurements for the coal pot would have been bigger.
