Glenwood No.116....... It's alive!

PostBy: dhansen On: Fri Dec 13, 2013 10:53 am

Always a bit of excitement, not without apprehension. Going slow and easy with just a little wood kindling holding between 200 and 300 degrees on the barrel. Smoke isn't too bad.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that contributes to this great forum. I doubt I'd be doing this without your shared experiences. Looking forward to getting into the coal.

Patience.

This is how I got around the 5-3/8" fitting on the back pipe. Two rolled rings of 1/8" x 3/4" flat bar welded together made an almost perfect bushing to fit the 6" stove pipe. The ring is tight in the pipe and just a little loose on the stove. If need be I could put a little stove cement on to seal it up. I really don't think it is bad enough to worry about.

Congratulations.

The only way you could make that a more beautiful sight is to have the glow of coal embers !!!!!!!

Can't wait to get my 118 doing the same thing. Hopefully. new grates will be arriving soon.

Some pretty! Sweet!

Don't forget when you burn coal the stovepipes should be screwed together, each with 3 (or 4) sheet metal screws.

And don't forget that CO detectors are a must have!

First coal fire going. seems to like running at something between 450 and 500 degrees on Kimmel nut. We'll see how it settles in.

I may need to work on the ash door a little. It is tight on three sides but the bottom won't quite grab the dollar bill. You can feel it drag though.

Plenty of new stove smell in the house. Photos once I clean things up a little.

So, to follow up, once everything settled down it burned through an almost full load of Kimmel nut in about 11 hours. Avg temp was 400 - 450.

I can see that there is a gap along the bottom side of the door. In a day or so I'll let the stove go out and see about sealing it up.

Today I've been burning some Blaschak stove size coal and the stove seems much happier. The Kimmel nut was full of granular coal and smaller pieces. Yuk. I'll try the Blaschak nut tonight.

Glad to hear it's working out. I should think you'd be able to extend that burn time as you get more familiar with it's settings.

Now, pictures man, pictures ! :D
