A SUNNY SIDE ?

The stove runs since 5 days now.
About 4 pounds at 8 Am and 7 to 10 pounds at 8 PM according to the shaking. 10 was after shaking and poking for the first time after 5 days. The ash tends to fall down like a circle in the ash pan with less in the middle. Maybe an other job for next Summer? Anyways I never saw coal ash in powder like that. Almost no unburnt ant.
The 2200 Sq F. is kept at 72/73*F on the 3 levels with no more than 1/2 degree of difference in the entire house. Outside temp. was about 28*F this morning and about 32/35*F day time. Stove temp. about 250/300*F steady on the top of the stove.
The only colder room is the small living room while the Golden is still sleeping now...and having the outside colder air coming from the heat-exchanger sent in that room cause warmer when the Golden is on.
A 1874 Heater making a job like that is not so bad :)

nortcan ..... I think the Sunny SIde may give the poor Vig ll a run for the money. Sounds like she is going to do just fine. Stay warm up there ;)

Thanks Tim. When I built the house 27 Yrs ago, the guy I hired for the first part of building the house was always saying to me: you put too much insulation in the walls and every where else, too much air tight...and at that time, more was costing just a very small difference, so I put much more :) and now the results just match with the antique stoves. More heat ...

Thanks buck24, when I got The Sunnyside, I was not really shure it could do a better job than the V2 was doing after all the transformations made on it.
But I was far from thinking it would be a so pleasant stove for my faux-foyer. Sending about 90% of it's heat at the back of it, where the air moving system pulls out the warm air then transfer it to the rest of the house is not comparable to the V2. That stove is the perfect one for this particular set up.

Just to make things look more clear in the dark black faux-foyer, I installed a LED lightning 10" strip inside of it to get the Synnyside looks ""warmer"" :!:

Very nice touch with the lights and the stove looks quite happy in its new home just cruising along.

What's the score between the SunnySide and the Vig II or is it too early to tell ?

Pierre, Sounds like that sunnyside is doing the business in fine style! You can see that the ashfall is quite different with the round style grates. My Herald did that same circular powder of ash drop with less in the middle (till I poked it a bit). It required allot more shaking than the Glenwood's, but it didn't leave anything unused. I know you have modified the grates somewhat and might be able to make them better, but that pattern is the norm for round dump grates.

Keith, as you said it's early to get a ""computarized"" (not shure of this word) comparison but it's certainly not worst with the Sunnyside. But the Vig ll had nany good points like the swing out ash pan/and lid, the long gases path, thermostatic control, large cooking griddle, OOPS, I think I already forgot some other points of the Vig ll :mad: :D .
Honestly, even with just a couple weeks burning ant in the Sunny, the results are very good.

Steve, you described the shaking process just like if you were in my living room :)
I also think that the round grate needs some slicing to be at the top of it's performances.
I modified a small slicer made for the Bride and now it works just fine, no mess and very fast to use. I open the door giving access to the fire pot lower section and enter the tool between the teeth, push and pull it then rotate it while pulling/pushing it. A flat mark on the handle show the end of the slicer position. That way I just shake the grate 4 or 5 times then do some playing with the small poker and it's done. Too lazy to shake the grate 50 times :D
I had a set of wood fire tools I never used so now I can make something out of them. I tried the long one but it didn't work good.
Fast and clean.
Plus, that gave me an other reason to justify the welding machine aquisition to the wife :roll:

Pierre,
Your stove looks amazing. The stove looks like it has been there since 1874. Are your pokers finished with Canadian Chrome too?
