Maybe a bit corny, but sometimes when the coal bed is coming on strong, I still enjoy the sight of the dancing ladies. Specific, only to coal...(?). I looked to see if anyone has started a thread like this, but I can't find it. I see the thread, "show us your "Stove", and it has a ton of views. Maybe some nice shots from the inside will peak some interest? And remember...."No flashes allowed".
I'll start.

Fresh shake down and refill of mag on the GW 6. Quick pic thru the mica to give high blue contrast. The mag kind of blocks out the very top of the fire and reduces the true amount of activity. Dumb sideways attachment, sorry
-.01 on the mano, 1 primary spinner 3/8” open , in Base mode the whole time.
Zero heat drop or recovery time, ever.

Nice to have the magazine option. Zero heat drop or recovery time is a dream.

"One lone blue, dancing all alone." Looks like that coal bed could go all week, at that speed. :yes:

I would guess that Mt. Helen looked a lot like that, when it erupted. Way cool.

That couldn't possibly be a hopper hanging there, is it Paulie. That is the cleanest, and straightest one I've ever seen. Maybe it's a sticker, on the glass?
