Why do they call it a Glenwood???

PostBy: Gary1 On: Wed Oct 16, 2013 10:17 am

With all due respect to a stove I happen to like very much, why do they call it a Glenwood? Since its primarily a coal stove, shouldn't it be called a Glencoal? Oh, maybe its for the same reason they call the place you drive your car the Parkway and the place you park your car the Driveway. Just asking....Gary

Same reason you have to chop a tree down before you chop it up. Or cut up your chow before you chow down. :|

If you chopped a tree up before you chopped it down you wouldn't have to worry about it falling the wrong way and hitting your house, right ???

This sounds like a good place to post this guys ad. I don't know the guy or anything about the stove, it's just an interesting ad.

Harmon Mark III Coal stove with blower. Side shaker, ash door with ash pan. Blower is single speed and works well. So well you may end up naked in your house. It literally makes that much heat.

4 free bags of nut coal with purchase. What else am I going to do with it? Hand it out at Christmas? Too much coal to give every one a nugget. So you get four bags. Must mean you've been realllly bad, slutty, or something. Or maybe you just need some coal for your new stove.

Stove could use fresh paint, but I never painted it since it sat in basement. Would clean up nicer than your cousin for church on Sunday. And it won't stink of booz either.

Fire brick is in very good shape as well. Like new. But it's not. It's used.

Grates in great shape. Good door gasket. Close to new condition. But they aren't. Because they are used. It's not rocket surgery.

Very heavy. It's so heavy you may need Arnold. Possibly the Hulk. Superman even. Some UFC guys.

Regardless it's heavy. Back breaking, hernia giving, finger smashing heavy. Feel free to swear openly when you come to pick it up. I will be for sure when you ask for help to load it up.

But you need to realize this stove makes so much heat, it will be warmer at your place with this fire breathing red glowing badass sumbitch of a stove, that your woman will want to flounce around naked. Constantly. It's up to you if thats a good or bad thing.

Coming out of the "Franklin" era and then the first airtight stoves burned wood. The first stoves were small and folks would travel many miles to buy their stove and delivery methods were few. Cooking on the range required fuel at hand and that was of course wood, Glenwood Stove Co. made a furnace that could handle 4 ft. logs as well. How'd I do boss huh huh come on tell me! :P
