It's obviously an evil plan of some sort...and I've been dragged in to it.
Yesterday I was at an account in Brodheadsville and ended up having a long discussion with the manager about coal burning. He has a Reading stoker heating his place. It was nice to mention coal to someone and not get the "third eye in the middle of my forehead" look.

It'll fit . I just have to push a little harder . Well maybe if I use the tractor . But it can fit ,just may not get it back out :D . It was a slippery ride back from your place tonight . There was a car that didn't understand physics and clipped a tree on the way over here . Dave

ALGORE will be naming me soon. I'm just finishing up painting the housing for the stoker ass'y. When everything is dry I can start assembling. I still have to paint the hopper and the doors (later). I'm also cutting an opening in the top (mine's not cast, just steel) for a 6" duct and blocking off the front air outlets just under the top.

Looking at that stove makes me think that mine is the model equal to a Chevy Biscayne while Flyer's is the Caprice.
But if it was anything more it would look out-of-place in the cellar.

For where I am putting it that works out the best . But what a pain in the a$$ to get the stoker in and out . Not something that I would want to do to often .But hey it got it up to 45 degrees up here today so whos complaining , I even got the bike out for an almost 30 mile ride today . Dave
