Refractory Cord or Cement.

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.

Hmm, I lost my post.
Second attempt.
I am planning to add some more pictures, but have process most of them first.
So far I have 114 pictures made from dismantling to reassembling :oops: .
The use of anti seize is knowledge of the forum here.

Very nice job Peter.
I probably missed something but how do you shake that grate?
Is it mica or glass panel?
Thanks and always good to see many many photos.

Thank you Nortcan, you didn't miss the shaker.
It isn't in yet, but there is a tiny shaker handle witch come true the front, and linked to the grate.
With a tool who I have to fabricate I can push and pull the shaker back and forth.
The grate will swivel a bit, I have no big expatations of it.
I think poking will has the best results.
The door has some smal glass strips in it.

Peter.
PS I found a picture from before the dismantling

It looks like you can easily get a flat poker under that door at grate level to clear the ash.

Hey Franco I tryed it but failed, tomorrow I try again with something like a bread knife.
Otherwise I have to fabricate a poker with a bended end from about 1.5" long.
