First Fire D.S. Basement Stove #3

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Fired up the new stove last night. Set her up in the driveway. burned a 5 gal pail of hand cracked coal and it went 12 hours. The paint is now hopefull cured, and when the time comes to light up inside we won't get smoked out.

Congrats on your new stove. I have a feeling we won't have to wait too long before we can all fire for real.

Congats on the stove. Give us a full report and pictures if you can when you start it up. We'll all be interested to see how they burn.
