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.

Hello everyone. My name is Jack, my co-worker George sent me a link to this site. I have a Dovre 300GX that I aquired from a job site two years ago and have been burning wood.

The installation manual states coal can be used in this stove with the optional grate which I do not have. I am hoping for some ideas on locating one.

Thanks...Jack.

I didn't poke around too much but you could probably start here

If I can find parts for a 20 year old WESO, you should be able to get what you are looking for.

Good luck.

Thanks for the welcome and the link. I emailed them and am waiting a reply. I burned coal the other night with a makeshift grate and it worked great until it needed to be shaken, then it went out.
I'll post when I find something. Thanks.....Jack.
