So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.

Couldn't prove it by me. At Gilgo beach 50 years ago,...couldn't get the darn board to stay under me ! Don't know how they can do that with boards half the size now. :D

Funny you know Gilgo...hot spot for surfing. They held competitions their years ago and still do I believe. Montauk and Rockaways are another 2 big spots. In fact the whole island... :lol: . I was a huge surfer...that is until the little ones came along. They consume ALL of my time, I wouldn't change it for the world though!

When you grow up on the water front in Amityville, it was straight across the bay and much quicker to get to Gligo by boat than any of the other ocean beaches by car. ;)

With the strong winds off the ocean down there I sometimes wonder what it would have been like trying to use coal instead of wood when staying at my Cousin's beach house at Davis Park. No question of having plenty of draft,.... just not sure which way it would go in the stove pipe. :D

So it's been a week today that I swept my flue. Noticeable difference, my filters are no longer getting clogged as fast. I put my baro back on so I don't think the dust was from that. My guess (proof is in the pudding so to speak) is that the fly ash build up in the flue pipe was making it's way out of the pipe seams, most likely during tending when the stove was shaking. I would notice some ash around the pipe seams every so often. When I pulled the two 45's apart a ton of ash fell out, amazing to see ash build up on an almost vertical pipe. Looks like a mid season sweep is my new routine.

Have enjoyed the journey with the 109. This thread and pictures has lead me to the conclusion that I really like the looks of this particular stove as well as other Glenwood and Crawford stoves I've seen. The style of these models are much to my liking.

I had forgotten about baro's altogether, but this thread stirred up some memories of the baro hooked up on my great aunt's Warm Morning stove she had in southeastern KY. I can remember sitting on the couch sometimes staring at it move back and forth, other times listening to it 'tink' when it moved. Come to think of it. I don't think I can recall ever seeing a baro hooked up on any wood burners that I've seen. Maybe, and vaguely, one or two. Can't say for certain...been too long ago.

I don't have a coal burner yet, but I wonder if a mano would benefit me in any way now. I really have no way of knowing how well my chimney drafts other than the smoke. :D

The more I read about base burners the more I want one.

Filter comparison between old and new. Amazing how much dust is floating around the air and our house isn't messy by any means. This is after about 5 days of use. I do notice some ash around the stove from tending, I'm glad the filter is picking it up! Crazy, you can't see the dust in the air...but it's there!

You should see the air filter in the cold air return of my oil furnace, it looks the same way real quick.

Agree!

Our furnace has a washable filter that my grandpa put into action, but I have no idea what kind it is or how well it works. Come to think of it...I probably need to inspect and wash it.

The location of our furnace filter would allow for a thicker filter, up to say 4" thick, but the current filter is only 1". That said, I'm going to do some research and see what is available in the way of other washable filters as well as HEPA filters, both for the furnace location and stand-alone models. Only problem is the HEPA are so danged expensive. Those ionic filters with the metal dust attracting blades seem to be advertised a lot, but I have no idea how good they are. I'll be looking into a good filtration system whether or not I burn wood/coal, or simply just use the oil furnace and A/C, since everyone in the house is sensitive to too much dust. I'm also skipping adding new carpets while removing old carpets on the renovation. That should cut down a lot on dust. Carpet is horrible for dust, but it is warm. May use some rugs that can easily be replaced and/or often cleaned.

I don't know why the difference.

The main cold air return for my furnace is in the kitchen with my coal range. Never seen coal dust in the air filters since I made an ash pan and stopped shoveling the ashes out of the stove.
