i'll just add here that the new Lehigh nut i started burning 2 weeks ago is white ash, VERY high heat, low gas stuff.

it is such heat heat output fuel i had to instantly start turning back my bi-metal dial control to keep from getting blown out of the house.

i'm now constantly 1.5 or more whole numbers lower than the settings required by the former locally sourced Blashack bulk nut. the ash is much finer and anything that is still holding any sort of form goes to dust at a mere touch, and there is much less total ash than the Blashack.

no regrets,
steve

OK, I get loaded up on the 21st, thank you Lehigh. The trouble is I did a chitty job on the roof 5 years ago and now i have to pay the piper. No foundation for the 2 ton stones. So the to So the whole roof gets lifted off with the excavator and I suppose this time I will do it properly. Mutter, mutter. In my defense I wanted to see if the whole system worked and if the bin was big enough. Yes to both so now is fix up time ... perhaps some pics to keep my coal brothers amused.

ok, so formerly you just stacked those keyed blocks at grade. what do you intend to do now ?

are yu going to move them all, dig a trench to pour a footer in and redo the stacking ?

are you going to cross weave the corners this time ?

i really wish i had the room at home that you enjoy, it make using the 22 tons i have in a corner at work much easier.

KC .... OK, so formerly I just threw it together willie nillie with no skills, footing or anything else, however, it did house coal for 5 years.. This time I will try to straighten out the blocks with a comealong or two and some gravel and hope it stays together. Crappy roofing will be changed to more crappy roofing. Architectural Digest magazine are going to do a feature on the place. Only the best for me. Fingers crossed as usual that the excavator even starts as that is touch and go these days. It lurches forward for 6 inches and then stops and gurgles. I can't even imagine how much it would cost to get Rob down to fix it so we blunder on.

Tried 10 bags of pea. Coal is clean and burns well. Only complaint is that in the plastic bag it remains wet and pea coal takes longer to dry than nut. With a steel chimney this is important. If the bags had some perforations it would be much dryer.

There are some perforations, however plastic will always hold some moisture.
