My GW 116

PostBy: philthy On: Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:32 pm

Made a trip to Mass this weekend and picked up this Glenwood 116 from Mr. Mull.

As excited as I am to have this project words can't explain what it was like to spend the day with Skip. My wife and I were there for 5 hours and could've spent another 5 easy. Unfortunately obligations at home had me on a time schedule. For those that have been you know what I'm talking about. For those that haven't, I highly recommend it.

Its a little bit of a project but not too much which is just what I was looking for.

With the original back pipe, plus a replacement and a wood plate. Really nice, complete, find for a project. And a stove that will really throw heat and do it well because it was designed by some of the best for both wood or coal.

And yes, time really flies by at Wilson's place. So enjoyable we could have stayed longer, but we had a 5 hour drive home !!!!!

Got it all tore down last night. 100 plus year old bolts don't like to come out!

I got a new back pipe when I was up but passed on the barrel as it looked really good and it was. But when I went to pull it from the pot what was left of the cement was stronger than the metal of the barrel. Should've just got it while I was there. Don't know how much it would cost to have one shipped but I'm sure it won't be cheap. Whats eating at me now is I know damn well I could make my own if I had the tools. There's some local shops that could do it but would rather do it myself.

Progress!

Not to detract from your story but I have a question: I need a new barrel for my Sears stove. The guy I got it from was using it as an ornament by his garage. The bottom of the barrel is all rusted away. Just point me in the right direction please!

I stopped by a local auto restoration shop today with the old barrel and showed him what I needed. He said "no problem" and to leave the barrel with him for a pattern. So, that would be my recommendation, an old school or old school trained car guy. Seems to be a dimminishing skill. :(

Well its been a while since I posted so I figured I'd chime in and give a progress report.

As I said, I want to to as much of this as I can so I went and got my self a sand blaster. This endeavor ate up a good bit of time because I never used a sand blaster and it just so happens the one I got operates a little different than most. Fortunately the thing works good! The only change I made was switching out the cumbersome ball valve handle for a deadman from Northern Tool.

That and it seems all the polishes and cements I wanted to use had to be ordered. So today after getting some yard work done I was finally able to get working.

Not much to share at this point but I was able to get the base blasted and one coat of the Williams stove polish. I was pretty happy with how it turned out but will do another coat tomorrow because after polishing I found several tiny nooks that I didn't get the polish in.

Looking good, Phil.

Glad you got that blaster figured out and working. With that type deadman shutoff valve, don't open and close it slowly, or it'll wear a track though the edge of the rubber seat and leak when closed. ;)

Yeah I see that. I have one block almost wore out. Luckily for me it came with some spares and I am getting better with closing and opening. I wrapped some rubber bands around it to help it along. It also came with 2 - 1/8" tips and a 1/16" tip. For what ever reason it wont push sand threw those smaller tips. I just took the old one (1/4") and it works.

Today I was able to get the ash drawer blasted and polished. Now I just need to cement it and bolt it back together.

Question though - how tight are you guys drawing your bolts? Seems to me too tight and something is gonna break.
