New to the Board, New to Coal

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'm about 30 miles from the SW end of the Southern Field, north of Carlisle. We bought a "rebuilt" Mark III and are still on the steep part of the learning curve.

Glad to find this forum!

Welcome! The people on this forum are some of the nicest people you will EVER run across. The collective coal burning knowledge and wisdom around here is darn right scary when you think about it.

Again... WELCOME!
