818 Warm Morning

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.

Well I found a 818 Warm Morning stove.It has the porcelain outer shell.It also has a bi-metallic thermostat on it.It is mounted on top of the ash pan door,and hooks up to the draft control on the ash pan door.It rest up against the body of the stove,to get the heat off of the firepot.This must have been an option from Warm Morning.I've looked at other 818's but they did not have a thermostat primary draft control on them.That's one thing I really liked about the DS Machine.I will post a couple of pictures of the stove with this setup.

Here's some pictures of the 818.The cylinder stove in the picture is not for sale.I've already tried to buy.
Has any of you seen a Warm Morning set up this way with the bi-metallic thermostat on the front of the stove?
The 400's have them on the side inside of the outer jacket.

Have never seen that configuration. It looks like it might interfere with shaking down since the shake down handle goes through that flap. Stove looks like new.

I need to make a decision on this stove.I hate for it to get away.I hope it would function as good as the DS Machine does.The only trouble with the DS Machine is the soot from burning bit coal.It doesn't plug up within a couple of weeks,it's just the build up of soot on the door and firebox.
I think the 818 would do alot better with the soot problem,and hope I can get the good burn time as I do with the DS.

If the firebricks are in good shape it should burn bit coal with minimal if any soot. The hollow corners of the firebrick provide
heated combustion air to the fire, burning off the volitiles..
I don't believe the DS heats the secondary, over the fire air, and this prevents the complete burning of the volitiles.

Unless the price on the 818 is very high, I think you wouild always be able to get your money back if it doesn't work well with your
bit coal.

I've never seen that attachment either.
If the doors on the warm morning fit well and the rest of the stove is airtight enough so you can completely control the burn, I think the warm morning could have longer burn times, and depending on how much coal it will hold compared to the DS would determine the difference in heat output.

Hi Greg,
The fire bricks look like new.The stove has hardly been used.
I guess it's the idea of learning another stove,and hoping I can get good burn times.
The over fire air on the DS is not preheated.
I do believe I can sell either stove fairly easy,if I go this route.

Don't know the price but from what I have heard from folks using this model stove, you can't go wrong. The thermostatic control for air seems to be a rarety, if I burned bit. I would try to get it, reminds me of an old camaro that had 3 sided glass bottles in the trunk you would put antifreeze in them and they were activated by a hand pump by the driver and sprayed on the rear wheels, very rare option.
