Response from poster reality check (last one)
it's good you sold the Hitzer and got something else. be careful on NEPA crossroads. there is some good information there, but a lot of MIS-information too. the majority of the coal burners there really don't know what they are doing. they tend to recommend the products they have been conned into buying from local dealers, or local shops. for one thing, don't put a baro damper on a hand fired coal stove. many on NEPA do that, it's a mistake. another issue is, there is a core group on NEPA that tend to push a newbie coal heater into buying a vintage antique stove. that would be a huge mistake. there are a few on there who speculate in these old stoves and sell 6-10 of them a year. they buy them for a few hundred or less, then sell them at a huge profit. beware. an antique stove needs a ton of work to make it safe and reliable. they also are not airtight or as efficient as a newer stove. good luck with the installation and heating.

Reminds me of the dribble that former member use to post. Fellow went by many names as he tried to regain access to the forum: Coalcracker, then dustyashpan, then rustyrelics, then Stanky. Might be wrong but he had a thing against the old Victorian stoves and would routinely revert to that theme.

Link doesn't work for me, but it sounds a lot like coal crackup.
Speaking of "dribble" - last I heard he was over on Hearth.com sharing his ex-spurt opinion.
So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.

I remember this paint fume, I remember when he said he heated his home in I believe N.Y. state on a ton of coal. I think Lightning called him out on it and he wouldn't respond...a total d bag.

That's a member that was banned who went on a posting spree... whatever. Just sends people to my site.
Closing this as I'm not interested in having a discussion about it.
