I have not built one but have been thinking the same thing as I just picked up a Combustioner myself, cant wait to use it. It is all I can do to stop myself from taking the hammer to the ton of lump in my basement to make stoker. I guess the only thing to worry about in building such a little crusher is the fines. Although your post just made me think of one possible solution, although I think it may crush too small, is the small sample crushers that coal labs use to process coal samples. They can handle 5 gallon buckets of coal at a time so it would make quick work of most anything. Just a thought.

teh thing about teh fines is teh stove crushes it up any way so as long as teh auger can feed it then I don't see why it wont work run yours for bout 5 mins with out a fire and look at teh coal in teh fire box and you will see what im saying

willis, if you've still got some of that ROM coal, just screen it to the right size, making a proper screen is far easier and less costly than trying to crush lump coal.

I can't take credit for this design, I purchased it from a local guy that used this to size coal for his combustioneer 77. The crusher wheels are planetary gears from an old mining truck and he fabricated the rest.
