Manometer Availability?

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.

I think I read here somewhere that there is a manometer floating around for rent? If I am mistaken, where would I get such a thing? I am moving to a new house and would like to get an idea on the draft so I can figure out what I need to do this winter.

Yes, do a search on Manometer Loaner Program (probably in the Controls/venting section), You should only check it with a fire in the stove to gauge the draft.
