Hood for Harman Markii

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.

Really temperamental stove/draft !!

See link above. The hood seems to work very good at keeping the stove room cooler, as well as getting the heat to the first floor.
