Our Glenwood 109

PostBy: tcalo On: Sun Aug 30, 2015 7:56 pm

Greetings all, hope summer is treating everyone well!

I managed to pick up an Our Glenwood 109. I didn't get a picture of the stove before I broke it down, sorry. This stove is in rough shape, but I felt compelled to save it from the grave. I know it's on the smaller side but thought it would make a good project. I was able to tear it down while waiting for my oil company to respond to an oil leak in my basement...not fun! Anyway, back to the stove. I knew it had some damage from the start but other things broke as I took it apart. My heart sank, but I am determined to put it back together. I reached out to Wilson and it seems there may be hope for this stove. For now her new home is in cardboard boxes. Once I hear from Wilson then hopefully I can get the parts to him for repair. I started to clean everything up while I have some time. I've been using a wire wheel on a drill to get the old paint off. I notice many choose to paint their stoves over polishing them. Any particular reason or just preference? I love the look of polish so I may go that route.

Be warned, this will probably be a long process with many questions! So lets get started...when I plan to put the base back together what should I use to seal everything, stove cement? There appeared to be red sealant around the base panels. I assume I also use cement to seal the front shield and clinker door as well. I'm also torn on how to treat the ash pit area, paint or leave it bare. I'm thinking paint may help protect it from corrosion.

I burned through a wire wheel and ran out of polish...to be continued.

If you search through the data base you will find I bought William Sherricks 109 and I used it a lot last winter. Really great stove, my sincere congratulations. Take your time and do it right. Super efficient and just as cute as a button. Don't forget the pics.

Good job TC.

Go over those parts with a good magnifying glass so you can inspect for cracks after cleaning. Put any cracked parts in a box and get 'em up to Skips house for repair.

Something tells me this will be your first of several antiques.... :D

Thanks everyone for helping me get to this point. A HUGE thanks to Scott for putting up with my endless calls, texts and pm's and taking the time to guide me through this process. I will be sure to keep everyone up to speed on the progress...with tons of photos. We are expecting our 3rd bundle of joy any day so this thread may slow down a bit!

What do you guys make of this? The sliding door that the shaker handle fits in wore a groove in the face plate and the area looks quite thin.

Not 100% sure the angle I'm seeing here TC, but here's a pic of a 111 frt face I got from Wilson. It's also where the draw center slide is, and maybe you can do a comparison? If yours has lasted this long, I'll bet it'll last another 50 years like that. But if you're apart, and would feel more comfortable changing it, you could probably get one from a member here, with spare parts....maybe.

Hope this angle helps, the bottom lip is where my concern is. Your right though, if it lasted this long it'll probably last another 100 years! Thanks.

Looks to me like Skip can run a weld bead down it.

Any other good news yet :D ?

Joeq, are your base chamber latches tight? Mine are extremely tight, I need pliers to open them. Soaking them now with pb blaster.
