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.

I have a Alaska channing III with direct vent.There is a thin white gasket that goes between the motor and the ADV housing. I was wondering if anyone else with this kind of stoker have made their own gaskets, the gasket is about 6" in diameter with the center cut out. I was wondering if this gasket was made out of fibreglass and if you could make one at home they cost about $10.00 each and the last one I bought did not seem to fit that well.
