P.S. when you feel that fire box up to the fire brick closely monitor that ash pan door so you don’t over heat your stove!

Thank you so much for your help! Here are some photos of my beauty! I hit the paint a little hard in some areas so it chipped off due to the heat but she's in amazing condition. I have another one just like this but it's a fireplace insert modal. Both were bought together in the 80's as a pair. I do not have a traditional fire place so the other one is dry stored in the barn. I love these old timers and do not have the heart to get rid of her and she's looking for a home. Know anyone that's looking for a fireplace insert that does wood and coal?

Something you might want to consider is buying a “magic heat” Heat reclaimer. It does a amazing job

What's the difference from the magic heat reclaimer and the blower that's already on Brunco? And this thing cranks the dang heat so we're pretty good their. She's much prettier in person plus she looks gray now because I wiped her down and my water has alot of salt and calcium (well water) so when she dried left residue. I got the fire stove pain from ACE Hardware and rated up to like 3000 degrees . I'm in Fairfield County ohio . If anyone is interested ill take photos of the insert tomorrow and post them on here. She's in great shape ; onlh bad thing is she weighs almost 400 something pounds

Wait!!! Forgot to ask , do you keep your pipe damper at full open or can you modulate it with the coal burning?

I do not have a pipe damper. The magic heat just reclaims all the heat that’s going up the stack. Just makes the stove so much more efficient.

Here is the fire place insert that was bought along with the standalone. I am not using it and if anyone knows someone that wants a classic she's available. She's in great shape! Has an internal blower and can do coal and wood. I'm not sure of the exact model but it's a brunco and was bought in 1981.
