Spent some time during the storm looking at D-Frost's catalogue link. Really interesting. Only 36 dollars for the 622, with a 12 inch pot. Those were incredible times.
Mcgiever, You've seen it already yours is the top of the line with a 16 inch fire pot? Just amazing.
I remember why the picture, what is a magazine,if anyone has time.

Wren,
Keep in mind, the average person back then might have only been making $5.00 a week.

A magazine is a cast iron tube that is suspended inside the stove from the top. The bottom opening of that tube ends at the top of the firebed.

There is a removable cover in the stove top over the magazine to close it off. Then, often a decretive bonnet over that.

With your 116 the magazine would sit in the smaller diameter recess that is just under the round cover, that is under the bonnet. The magazine has a lip around the outside edge of the top and it hangs in the stove by that lip.

When reloading coal, you don't use the loading door. Instead, swing the bonnet aside, lift and swing that round cover aside, and then pour the coal into the top of the magazine. As the coal in the firebed burns down, fresh coal moves down from inside the magazine to replenish it. As long as no air is leaking in through the top of the magazine the coal in it doesn't burn.

When I get on the other computer I'll post pictures of a Glenwood magazine a bunch of us had made as a group project about a year ago. Your 116 would use the same magazine.

The Glenwood magazine for your 116 holds about another 18 to 20 pounds of nut coal inside the stove. Plus, it speeds up the reloading and recovery process so that you can reset your dampers sooner after reloading.

Thank you, Sunny Boy. Really something. Of course I won't even think/dream about it until I've sorted out my damper and so on. Amazing that it works. What an idea. And no electricity or batteries needed.
