Hey Y'all

PostBy: retrotorevolution On: Fri Nov 15, 2013 7:00 pm

Just thought I'd take a quick moment and say hi.
I'm a short time wood burner (7 Years), and I picked up a Glenwood Modern Oak 116 for coal at the local church thrift store that I plan to restore.
I'll make some pics later on, Picking it up tomorrow. Hope it's all there, I think it is. Fingers Crossed.
Searching Yahoo for that stove, this place is the only forum place that came up, which is great.
I saw a couple threads I'd probably like to revive in the next few weeks as I get into the project.
Great forum though, thanks for existing!
I'll be reading up tonight.
Cheers
Jeff

Put Glenwood 116 in the search box upper right and you will find many posts about your stove.

welcome Retro! great to have another Glenwood owner :clap:
You are correct about this being the one and the ONLY site on the web that has information about some of these old time works of functional art (a few folks have the 116 here), can I ask how much you paid the thrift store for this stove out of curiosity?

Glad you asked, I haven't seen any numbers yet.
I'm happy to say I paid $550.
I guess how I did depends on the completeness.
Will weigh in tomorrow on that with pics and questions.
Any preliminary thoughts on the price?

Welcome. I have the big brother to your 116. If I ever get better grates for it, I'll put it into use. :roll:

Your in the ball park. I paid $700.00 for my 118. No cracked castings, a couple of grates have chewed up spots, and I need to make a back pipe, but all the nickel plating looks new.

Added some responses to your other post. Hope they help.
