Stove/Furnace Make: Hot Blast Model 1500

I have a Hot blast 1500. Until I purchased A manometer and set my Barometric damper I had many problems burning Anthricite coal.

I couldnt get enough air into the furnace and couldnt close the ash door until I could see what was going on.

Now I have it set and can burn with the ash door closed and the spinner turned out about 10 turns. (I leghened the bolt)

The good news is I didnt need to drill any additionall holes in the door as some have had to.

Still early yet but looks good so far.
