Bit/Sub-Bit Augering

Hand fed coal boilers and furnaces using bituminous coal to heat your home or business. Hand fed stoves as the name implies require manual feeding and air adjustments.

Has anyone ever tried moving bit/sub-bit coal with a grain auger?

When you turn your boiler on -Does it return the favor?
I have finally lost my mind. Don't bother to return it. It wasn't working properly anyway!

Is there a video or pictures or something that go with that? I don't see the object of the thread anywhere. Something wrong with my settings???

I clicked on the link, I find no you tube button or video.
My leak fixed itself.
Georgie must have made too many girls cry.

You could search coal auger, several posts on the subjuct, here is one,http://nepacrossroads.com/about5516.html#p53431.
In the posts above they have linked to another topic with a Youtube video link showing a flexible auger loading a bin.
Most of the auger work discussed on this forum is in topic, Coal Bins, Chimneys, CO Detectors & Thermostats,
GeorgiePorgie seamed fairly low key, but I didn't read all his work, he definaltly put in the effort to build and film his auger.
Basically is looks like augers do a fairly good job moving coal, thats how it gets from my coal hopper into my fire, at a very slow metered rate.
I thing the mayor has a post about delivering coal into an auger with his delivery truck.
If it was as easy as burning oil, everybody would be burning coal.
Forum reality, If you ask wheres a good steak house? You will be informed that what you really want is pork chops.
Enjoy it for what it is worth.

There are really some great ideas. I can't seem to find youtube videos anywhere, not even when I go to the debate and joke section. Must be something wrong with my settings. I was thinking if augering bit was the same as augering anthracite, I'd probably have a new stoker by now.
