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.

Just look at the channel the old gasket comes out of and get that size. Be careful with the old gasket as it may be asbestos. so do it outside and wear a mask.

One other note on gasket if it asbestos or not you can treat it as it is and spray the gasket and area with warm soapy water to keep what ever dust is there from going airborne this is keeping the contaminated area nonfryable. ( not likely to go airborne cause it wet and the soap is sticky) even if it not asbestos it probable not the greatest stuff to breath
