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.

A buddy of mine had burned wood for over 30 yrs, and got tired of the work, and was able to acquire this "combo" stove a few yrs back. He's still in the experimental stages, and has it mounted in his ranch house basement, with the stove pipe running approx. 8-10' horizontally, (angled up), connecting to a red brick chimney, outside his foundation. The only adjustments on his stove is some "spiral" intake valves mounted low. He also has a problem getting it to run through the nite. Anyone have any info, or tips on this stove? Thanx

Reopening this thread, just to see if anyone has any knowledge or input on this stove. Would anyone know what the draft requirement is on this stove? Thanx for your response.

Democracy rests upon the principle that collective wisdom arises from a pool of individual ignorance. A Republic rests squarely upon objective law, and fundamentally upon those laws which restrict the scope and actions of government.
