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 wonder if he is a member of our forum? I bet he would have some interesting answers, of the home brew type. If you are a member at that audio forum, maybe invite him over here.HeresPaco wrote:Check out what this guy did with his Alaska model 140. Pretty slick idea , I say!

To bad he didn't come here he could have bought a coal-trol for less than $400 and it would even run his bonnet fan for the unit. But I love the homade engineering, looks like something I would have tried a couple of years ago but now the wife would kill me if I put something like that on the side of the stove
