Help Stoker-Man, I Need a Measurement

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Stokerman (or anyone else with a new efm 520 boiler), can you measure the space between the water jackets behind the baffles please? I would like to clean my boiler without buying the online only horseshoe shaped brush plus shipping, so if I know what size round brush to use I can just get one from the hardware store for $8. I would like to shut down just long enough to clean the unit but not so long as to have the water cool off.
Burning coal is definitely worth the extra work involved.
"Good enough" is not good enough.
