The stoker is still a boiler . Just used as a hybrid to heat air through a heat exchanger. Dave :D

Doing pretty well, the old AA just keeps burning coal and making ash. keeping the shop floor at 55* or more, with this mild weather.

How's your brand new AA steamer doing? you still sleeping with her every night?? :lol: or just having a beer and discussing the day's events
before heading to your own bed? :shock: :lol:

Mine is feeling a bit neglected, I only feed her, swap ash pans, and add a drop of oil here and there..
