This Glenwood has been re-built in its life already (this is not a stove sitting since 1905), the brick, the grate, etc. are MINT. The only thing Emory would have to do is take it apart (paint & polish) and then put it back together (no new parts to buy, no parts to be rebuilt or repaired). It has everything it came with including the roaster grate! The one and only thing that needs to be purchased is a shaker handle (I'm sure Emory has 47 of them out back in a pile )
I don't believe this Glenwood or even a #6 or #8 can be bought at any stove shop (frankly, I cant find one because they pre-sell before they ever hit the floor at one of these shops!)... if you know of a true "Glenwood" baseburner available reconditioned for sale at one of these shops... I would love to know about it!!! because I cant find one (they are ALWAYS "SOLD") they generally sell for $3000 and UP (its the Oaks or Dbl heaters that you sometimes see for slightly under $3k and are always available!)
Im asking $900 for this one (I don't think Emory could charge more than $1,500 to simply take it apart and put it back together, but you need to ask him... pics are available on my other thread that you can send to him).
That's how I got my 6 . I called Doug at Barnstable stove and he said he had just got a Glenwood #6 un restored so I asked him what I needed to give him as a deposit to restore it for me . I paid him that in an instant! I paid close to 3K fully restored and then a good deal more to have it crated and shipped . I was very impressed with the work done and the care in shipping .
If you think about it I've ended up spending a little over 7k in my chimney , hearth and stove set up so far . Probably got another 1000 to go at least ! I get the lecture from my father of how I could have had central air for that money. Lol
So are you looking for one of these still?[/quote]
I was not so much looking to buy a Glenwood 6 or 8 but trying to find one to compare value (Its very close to the "Our Glenwood" baseburner), I just think the "Our Glenwood" is a larger stove and maybe a tiny bit more rare than the 6 or 8. Having said that... the fact is, all of these Glenwood models sell long before ever hitting the showroom floor!!! (which is why I cant get any pricing ), You clearly got a great deal on yours (because finding one PERIOD is very hard!), I recently found the perfect stove for me and my 800 sq' 1 bed bungalow (the Glenwood stands as tall as me with a 15" firepot so it needs a whole house to heat not just a lil' closet)... Picking up, purchasing, storing, boxing a stove like this is a chore in itself... taking it apart to re-cement & re-paint is another chore! I just wanted to give a fair a price to a very loved member of the forum for my small part in saving it.
