Wasn't me. I would love to have bid on it but you all were right, I don't know enough about these babies to buy one in person on my own let alone long distance and taking the sellers word for it. We are really seriously looking into the chubby stoves though. Larry Trainer sells his refurbished ones on ebay or from his store. We are thinking this might be the best solution for our fireplace opening since its so hard (nearly impossible) to find a baseburner with a 24" or smaller footprint and a rear flue shorter than 29.5" that is meaty enough to heat our whole house. Only downside is the fact that its anthracite only but hubby doesn't see that as a downside so I guess its all good :)

Any base heater with a back pipe can be easily modified to fit into your fire place. You simply place the exhaust collar at the height you need. Many base heaters were and are installed into an existing fire place.

Would you expand on the adjustment of the exhaust collar?

Didn't realize one could do that but its good news!

Its not JUST the rear venting, its finding one package that has that plus a 24" or smaller footprint that's big enough to heat our drafty 1700 sf. Its proving very tough. The guy from the stove hospital said he didn't know if he could find me something that would work. He said the glenwood oak 40 would do the job but its like 27"-28" deep.

their is a cast exhaust collar (thats merely furnace cemented with nuts/bolted to that rear oval exhaust pipe) that can be placed anywhere along that rear oval pipe to allow for your 5" or 6" flu pipe leading up your chimney to attach to. (i find them typically low enough to be very close to making it out most fireplaces anyways... just need a hearth pad of some sort to cover the typical 24x24 - 28x28 base of the unit.

Which one is 24"x24"? That should work size wise if its big enough to heat the house. And when you say 5" or 6" flue pipe, does that mean you can use either?

most the ones ive seen have 5" cast exhaust plates (does not really matter because be it 5" or 6" it can always be reduced or expanded to a 5" or 6" with zero problem), the Glenwood 111 is 24x24 for sure (we would need William to tell us the base size of a 6 , 8 or some others but most of them generally fall into the 24x24 - 28x28 category.

The foot print of my #6 is 24" X 24" measured at the feet - if that's what you want to know...

The flue is 6 inch round out of the stove.

Thanks DC! I guess you are talking about the back double pipe on an Oak. I was mistakenly thinking about the Number 6 Base heater.

Well... I was thinking of the "Our Glenwood" Baseheater , but it would apply to any double back pipe on an oak as well... I assume the Crawford 40 is similar to the "Our Glenwood" as well.

In case it matters to anyone, the Glenwood Modern Oaks 114 and 116 have a 5 inch pipe. The 118 has a 8 inch pipe. The ones I've seen pictures of that are lucky enough to still have the back pipe all seem near to the same out-let height. It's near the top of the pipe and looks to be about a foot higher then alot of the base heaters.

I ran into that tid-bit of info thinking the back pipe parts of a 114 or a 116 would fit my 118. :roll:

"Cast Iron Cronies " :D

I love it.

That should be another suggestion for the tee shirt - with a picture of an old stove ! :D

Or maybe we should start calling William, "The Sherrick of Nuttyham" ? Oh, that's right, . . . he uses stove coal ! Never mind :D

Does anyone know the "lowest" height (from the bottom of the pipe to the floor) these stoves will accept?
