Draft Gauge.

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

This one is on Craig's List for $20.00. I do not know how close fleetville is to you but it might be worth the drive.

YOu are not looking at the right one, a DWYER Mark II Model 25 are about $30-40. Just do a Google search or look on Ebay.

Not bad! One merchant selling them for $35 shipped. Model # 27 is fine?

Thanks!

The problem is the SCALE, the model 27 goes to 7" of water, the model 25 goes to 3", you are only using LESS than .1", so the scale may be hard to read at the .02-.04 rating. It's too bad they don't make a 0-1" one in this type.

I marked on this one, where you would read it, the Model 27 would be even smaller range to read and less accurate at the lower range.

NOT model 27! The Mark II Mod 25 is what you want. Keep your eye on eBay & you'll get one for $30-$35. Follow the directions exactly! If you get too much oil in it, it's a son of a gun to get the extra back out.
