Old Mill Stoker With a Coal Trol...First Burn

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 is an almost completely redone Old Mill Stoker Stove using a Coal Trol.

The stove was completely sanded down and repainted.
All gaskets were replaced.
New Glass was installed.
Special frames were made to secure the glass in place.
Coal Trol added to increase burn efficiency
Fume Switch added
Barometric Damper

No motors were replaced because they all appeared to be working correctly.

I was able to burn for about 2 hours. The set point was exceeding to keep the fire going during start up, however once burning and reverting back to the set temperatures the fire went out. Set point was at 72, and room was at 75.

I have never used a Coal Trol before so I am still tweaking and learning how to correctly set it up.
