He's got part of a No.6 anyway. I suppose we'll see the remainder of the pieces soon. Yes!

:D

Ok, I thought for sure there'd be enough hints. It's all of a number 6. :D

It's the restored Glenwood #6 in the back ground of my third picture. This is the first stove you saw pictures of Wilson making an all steel bottom pan for. That bottom pan is 1/8 inch thick plate steel, plus, Wilson's main career was welding things that could melt this stove to a puddle in seconds. It will NEVER have a problem !

I haven't brought it in the house yet, to set it up, because I'm rebuilding my living room where it will reside. The small boxed-up pieces and the plated parts are all unloaded, but I have to make room (somewhere) for the barrel, firepot, and base until I finish the living room.

If you don't mind me asking.....what vehicle did you stuff that stove into?. I too will be heading East very soon to pick up a very similar but slightly larger stove and I want to make sure I bring a vehicle it'll fit in.

Oh, and I will verify that Wilson is a wealth of information and VERY helpful too. I can't wait for my trip!!!.



Pancho,

It easily fit into my Ford Taurus-X wagon with room to spare. I brought three heavy-duty cardboard boxes and old sheets and blankets to wrap and box up the plated parts, plus the lift-off loose pieces such as the doors, base flue cover, top cover, stove tools, the back pipe, etc..

After it cooled down, Wilson unbolted the barrel from the firepot, so that the biggest, heaviest part was two much more manageable parts.

I wish I could have found out first hand ! :D I was glad just for the chance to see an 8 up close.

But having seen it up close, yes ,I think it could have fit it in my Ford Taurus. The barrel is only a couple of inches wider then the 6, but with those nickel plated skirts, it looks like a "healthy" gal with hoop skirts on ! :D

Thanks Doug. You won't be disappointed.

Pictures of it all ? I don't think that would leave Wilson much time to work on stoves. I was kidding him about having so much iron there that all his neighbor's compasses must point toward his place, instead of north. :D

Great post Paul, I am very envious about the #6. That is the stove I was looking for when shopping for a stove. I settled on the Kineo because nobody had a #6 at that time. Envious I say, Envious! :mrgreen: That is not to say I am not happy with the Kineo, it has been a great stove this winter.

Paul,

This is great information. Much appreciated.

I'll post similar pics when I get that #8 loaded up. :D :drunk:

Paul, thanks for sharing. Sounds like you had a great day. Looks like going to Wilson's is like stepping back in time. Love those wide plank floors. Wonder if he has any Stanley Argand parts. I'll have to get in touch with him. Thank you for providing us with another person to get antique stoves/parts from. I too would also like to see the Impala's. Love the old bubble tops. Take care and good luck with you new acqusitions. Matt

Thanks Randy. That Kineo of yours is a good looking stove. Wilson had a base heater there that reminded me of yours, but it's such a blur of stoves, I can't remember the name.

I've had my Modern Oak 118 project for a few years, but after seeing William's YouTube vids about the #6, it got me looking at my Glenwood range differently, and that got me re-thinking what type of barrel stove I wanted to heat the front half of the house.

Even though the #6 firepot is smaller (this #6 original brick liner is 13-1/2 max diameter x 9-1/2 inch deep, verses the 118's 16 inch lined diameter x 11 inch depth), after many years of using the range, I know what it's like to stand near a stove that channels the heat near the floor to warm from the feet up, . . . in addition to helping to pre-heat the incoming primary air to increase coal burning efficiency. ;)

So, many months ago I started looking for a #6, while still going forward with the 118 project, figuring I'd use the 118 until a good #6 showed up.

Thanks Matt. I'm sure you'll enjoy it if you ever get a chance to go there. I wish I had more time to look over the vehicles. My first car was a 62 Chevy Biscayne. But, with 300 miles one way, we had very long day of travel. This was a stove trip. Wilson said there'd be a lot to see and he did not disappoint !!!

Paul,
My brother's first car was a '62 Biscayne, 6 cylinder, 3 on the tree. He left it home while he was at college, so I got to use it on a very limited basis. I bet someone that I could get rubber in second gear, and of course they said "no way!" I won the bet though, because I did get rubber in second gear.....downshifting and dumping the clutch! Don't tell my brother!

that's funny right there. i had a knack for that style of thinking early in life too. made lots of money with "bar room" bets of the same nature, won titles to vehicles, got the girls etc etc and unfortunately also started LOTS of major brawls.

still think things out from both ends though. most of the best stuff comes from visualizing something in complete form or at least at the surface or even skeletal then working out the details of bringing it in to being.

the cool part is finding that you need something that you can't find in the primary field but finding things you can directly re- purpose. i love that.
