can any one please post a pic of one of these stoves. Found one for sale for 500 and thinking about buying because I can get washed stoker coal for free at work, but not sure what one looks like and don't want to drive 2 hours before I know what I going for.

What size pipe is on this stove. I currently only have 6 inch thimble into 7 inch tile chimney. I am planning on building new 8 inch and coal bin , but not till summer.

6" flue outlet on the stove, but on mine I go immediately into a sheet metal box about 16"x16"x20" as a fly ash collector and then into an 8" flue with baro. I highly reccomend a "magic heat" type heat reclaimer on these and the addition of a large squirrel cage fan in place of the fan that came with it from the factory; this will substantially increase the efficiency of the stove. If you have existing ductwork, this furnace works great as an "add-on" type forced air furnace to place parallel with your current gas/oil/etc. furnace/airhandler by adding both a return and hot air plenum and closing off the front vents.

It depends on a number of factors including the coal being burned, but depending on feedrate, i'd estimate between 90,000-150,000 btu/hour Output properly setup and adjusted. It can go higher, but the stack temp and frequency of clinker removal makes this impractical.

Well I just returned from my adventure to the rich Hocking coal fields of Ohio with my dump truck full of Combustioneer. 225 miles round trip and 60 dollars in diesel . Some poor fellow decided to install wood eating outdoor furnace (Sucker) :lol: and was nice enough to sell me all of his coal fired appliances.....So here is what I came home with. A very nice Combustioneer Model 77 , a Will-Burt model 30 stoker with 3 retorts , 2 feed augers and a spare transmission that fits perfectly in the Will-Burt Model 24FA Furnace that also came (I didnt even know Will-Burt made furnaces) and a lot of pipe. Furnace needs minor sheet metal work before this summer install, but not a problem. Plus a little bit of paperwork for both which I will scan soon and share. How much did all of this cost.......700 dollars!!! Will try to post a few pics tomorrow

That reminds me of this furnace that I see around here from time to time...

I thought I had a good photo of this model furnace but I can't find it right now so I posted the link.....they're 'fire engine' red with a black firebox door and look sharp IMO.
If you restore that you should paint it red ;)
