Barrel for Glenwood Oak 30

PostBy: tmbrddl On: Sun Mar 23, 2014 3:47 pm

Hi folks. I just picked up a Glenwood Oak 30 and noticed there is a slight deterioration in the metal barrel where it meets the pot and am wondering if there are replacement parts available for it. The stove is in excellent condition other than that and I'm hoping it's not a fatal flaw. Thanks for your help in advance.

If you remove the barrel, any good sheet metal shop will be able to do it if they have the tooling.

Thank you, Gekko. There happens to be a very good sheet metal shop I've used in the past but I was hoping there might be enough of a demand for the part that someone took the initiative to make them ahead of time. Matching the metal material might be a chore. It has the look of case coloring to me

I THINK most are just 20 or so gauge mild steel.

The coloring you see may be stove polish or some treatment applied if it's original.

The ones I've seen fabricated at the Stove Hospital appear to be be mild steel sheet.

Maybe William or Emery can correct me.

If you've ever seen color case hardening on a firearm you would recognize what I'm referring to. Thanks for the tip about the Stove Hospital, never thought of that. Spoke with Emery on the phone just this week.

I got to see a few original Glenwood stove barrels Saturday. They are indeed a form of acid bluing, just like the deep, almost black, acid bluing used in the gun industry.

It's also very much like the same finish found under the paint on many sheet steel auto engine parts from the early 1900's. It was often used as a primer for dip-painted mass produced steel stampings, such as valve covers, air cleaners, oil pans, etc..

Your welcome.

It was interesting to see so many in original condition, because all the cast iron parts are jet black, with a low-gloss finish, but the sheet metal of the barrels have a blue cast to them that I would not have noticed if the cast iron parts were not so jet black in contrast.

I've seen many pictures of restored stoves. Most seem to be either flat black, or flat charcoal gray. So many that I've wondered what they originally looked like. Well, I got to spend about 6 hours touring all through Wilson's place on Saturday and I got to see a bunch of originals, and not just Glenwoods.

More about that wonderful visit in another thread. ;)
