Alaska Kast Console Is Home

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.

What color? Only the doors, they will be blue. I have to make it look presentable, next to the new oil burner that never runs. :D

It's starting to go back together, not as fast as Flyer's, though.

I use a 7" angle polisher/grinder I bought at Harbor Freight for $16, installed a heavy 4" wire wheel on the arbor, that thing eats rust and ash deposits for breakfast! :lol: The 4" size allows the wheel to leave less uncleaned spots in the corners. I also use a needle scaler I bought at Harbor Freight for $49, that thing works great to knock the scale off the cast pieces. That set up has been used on 3 stoves now (can't sand blast in this weather :( ) and has plenty of life left in it.

The duplicolor silver 1200* ceramic paint makes a great undercoat and paint for the back of the stove. I even paint the inside that way the stove doesn't rust in the off season. Then use the black of the same brand to paint the outside, is only $5.87 a can and one can of each will do a small stove, larger stoves may take two of each color.

Have fun and keep cleaning up the old stoves, they will live forever! :P :lol:

Getting closer to finished...I just have to paint & install the hopper and finish the doors...and it's done.
As soon as the stove pipe is installed it will be time to fire it up! :blowup:

It will be finished today. I can't connect the stove pipes yet, the BUILDING INSPECTOR will be here on Wednesday to inspect the new oil burner (*censored*). I'm going to throw a drop cloth over the Alaska, as well as pile some stuff on top of it and around it. Maybe he will think it's a piece of furniture or something!
I hate having the building inspector snooping around here.

Thank you very much. I like your idea, by the way. I don't have any Dumont equipment around here, only some vacuum tubes.
I lied, it won't be done today, I ran out of gasket rope for the top door.
It looks kind of shocking, now, though. I painted the doors Chevy engine orange!

Yes, it does resemble Halloween. I had 3 part cans of Chevy orange. I could always repaint them later. It is kind of odd, but what the hell. It is finished except for the door glass, I cemented in the gasket, needs to dry first. I expect to have it fired up next weekend, after the Building Inspector's visit.
