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.

I've been in contact with the owner of that site specifically about the damper comments, I mentioned he might want to consider changing it to reflect their usage on stokers. He did have a good point and concern though, people using wood may add a baro after installing a stoker and not clean the chimney out. This would be hazard at least for some time because the baro provides perfect source for oxygen.

I came across that site because of the video services, I asked around because I have a lot of contacts for video repair and he comes highly recommended for fire and water damaged material. Has a great policy too, if he can't fix it he'll return it no charge minus shipping.
