Don't worry the trains were fine( I sold them) well Fred I like to know how things are doing, I had two CO problems so I like to know how things are working.
It is just like having a oil pressure gauge, amp meter, or a fuel gauge on a truck, car or a piece of equipment! It helps keep the bad things in-check :D

Barry,
Glenwood looks great, an installation that has all the precision of a master machinist.
I never saw a Glenwood in person but it looks huge... How tall is that thing? It will be interesting to see if it can do as good a job of heating as your insert did..
I lit up my stoker October 1, Don't know how you can hold out for two more weeks before you start that thing up.. especially being in northern Ohio near the lake...I would think alot colder and windier than where I am and I need the coal heat now !
Just a caution as with anything new.. I hope your house has plenty of CO detectors.
Good Luck.

Sometimes old farts become wise old farts. So do you want to fly IFR or just get up there and play with the joystick and see what happens?

An amazing stove without a doubt, but to the "ancillary equipment" point, I have found that my temp gauges and manometer are largely unnecessary except for the initial setup and/or familiarization of a new chimney or stove.

Common sense is the 1st line of defense, all the other stuff is add security plus I don't mind having a extra set of eyes and ears for the times I'm not there which is not a bad thing in my opinion :yes:

Really nice looking installation, Keepa. I don't care how warm it is outside, I couldn't have waited to fire that baby up, and take those dampers for a spin !!!!!! ;)

was it the early Tempest or Cutlass that had the console mounted vac. "economy" gauge I wonder if one of those could be recalibrated to have - .02 in the middle of the "sweet spot" ? that would be cool.

Water column and inches of mercury are two widely different scale ranges. A stove would barely make an automobile engine vacuum gauge needle twitch off the stop pin. And a car engine would such a mano gauge dry just on the first few turns of the starter motor.

.04 inches of water column equals .0029 inches of mercury.

Cursing speed on a level road for most car engines would equal about 240 - 250 inches of water column. :shock:
