Cichewicz Futura Eco 70

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 see some unburnt pieces in the ash, not too bad but the rice might get a more complete burn with this "idle" type of burner. I also seem to be getting melted metallic chunks in the ash. Does not matter with this type of burner but if I had a hand fired I might have a problem.
I would try buckwheat first . Rice may not get enough air . Dave

You know when people say it was "better back in my day"?

They were right.

You upload them just like you would the pictures, they need to be in WMV, MPG, AVI or MOV format. Note that I just added the last three extensions. They also have to under 50MB's and you will need a pretty fast connection because there is about a 15 minute time limit to upload.

If they aren't under the 50MB I'd suggest using Windows Movie Maker to convert to WMV, it has option to set a file size.
