Greetings fellow board members,

I have been averaging 50-75 pounds of rice coal per day
and 4 gallons of ash+- every 12 hours.

The Honeywell L8124L, Bell and Gossett RB-122-Low Water
Cut Off, Intermatic 30 minute timer and the Dwyer 4 inch triple
gauge have been working with no issues.

The Dwyer Mark II Manometer is seeing a steady -.02 Hg Water Guage
pressure gradient.

Lining the floor of the ash pit with standard firebrick is my off season
project as it has no insulation under the boiler.

The temperature has been a virtual yo-yo with 20's at night and almost 60 some days.
