Yet Another Console From Matthaus

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 like the way that color photographed outside better than inside, I tried the Honey Glo Brown and it seemed to GOLD and Metallic I ended up using it for accent color . I love the Goldenfire Brown instead it is reminiscent of the old Heatrolas I repainted the Harman that color with Black and Honey Glo accenting on the door cause it wasn't fancy Brass not to mention the left over can got used on the Hood of my Victory 700 .
