Sc100

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.

Not 100% on the glass My Hitzer takes a flat gasket folded over the glass so it catches both sides of glass

Make sure you wire brush all those gasket channels & where they hit on the stove--hopefully you'll do a real good clean up on the old girl--looking fwd to pix of the new & improved version. ;)

I replaced all the seal and cleaned all the ash out of her and set back in place now just need to bring in some coal tomorrow and fire her up

i will check draft tomorrow and screw smoke pipe I have my fingers crossed

my only concern is that the last owner had a insurance claim from a puff back and I cant figure out why and not sure how long ago and if it was not used after that

Right up to the top of the front fire brick--is that fire box that bid--60lbs or so???? there's no hopper on that is there??? You're only tending once a day??? A bucket & a half don't sound all that bad for a 24 hr period. Lot of questions huh! Ya Know I'm just a nosey old farmer. toothy All & all--sounds good so far
