Glass Gasket

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.

Getting the bolts or screws out of the door frame without breaking them off is a really neat trick. Last time I did that I broke all but two. I had to drill out the rusted in place bolts and then tap the holes with the next size screw thread. When I put them back I used a LOT of anti-seize compound. Just for grins and giggles I take them out each year and put more anti-seize simply because I never want to do that little task again. You can try spraying them with a penetrating oil, transmission fluid, or your favorite oil of choice. Good luck

Soak with penetrating oil.
Put tension on screw and set up vibration by tapping on screwdriver or pliers with another tool.
Do this in both directions until hopefully you get movement.

Heat will sometimes work if you don't have any penetrating fluid on hand. If you could touch the glowing bolt you could remove it by hand ... sometimes. ;)

Tranny fluid mixed 50/50 with acetone makes a kick ass penetrating fluid. Haven't bought any PB'laster for years now. 8-)
