I doubt you can hurt something that was made over 100 yrs ago, restored and properly fired...and welcome to the best forum for coal heating and just about anything else!

Welcome Merc,

If you do a search for Glenwood #6, in this "Hand Fired Coal Stove" section, you'll find quite a bit about them that's been posted recently.

And yes, there is a weakness with some of the cast iron bottom pans. However, your search should also turn up info on a project to make new steel pans.

If the stove is operated properly, then; it will outlast all of us.
You will be very happy with a Glenwood No 6.
They are not only efficient, but; extremely easy to use and maintain.

Here is a thread all about Glenwood No 6 Base Heaters.

Welcome Aboard!
Make sure your buying from a reputable antique stove dealer and beware the home owner spray painting a stove and calling it reconditioned.
A true antique baseburner requires a lot of time, effort and work to call it "restored". Unless your really into this process buy from stove hospital or barnstable or similar reputable stove shops.... then make sure you post for us here the new crown jewel :punk:

You will love a base burner. Glenwood are very good and many other ones can make you more than happy.

The Glenwood is a great quality stove. I think, when they were brand new, there were no issues...after they turn a century old and have been through abuse, some of them have had some issues. Again some is the key word, not many or all.
