Thanks for the tip on the Rutland patching. I am taking my time to make sure it's safe, and do have a screen. I appreciate that, as well. I bought a 40# bag of anthracite but looks like I'll need a source for bituminous. Might not be a problem...the Steam Railroading Institute and Museum is within walking distance of my house.

I regress--no matter what ya burn--ya got shaker grates--let em fall right down the hole. PS--personally I'd stick with wood fires to start & go from there experimenting!!

I agree. Something really small to start. Maybe a little smoky, just to.see where it goes. As in unseen holes, like an unsealed thimble further up in the house.
