To feed your stove and how often do you do it? Since I have been reading this forum I have become much more, shall we say attuned to my stoves performance. Not quite obsessive,
but could get there. Anyway I wanted to see exactly how much time it took to take care of the old VC gen. I. So I got out the stopwatch and timed myself:
To dump ash, shake & slice, get coal from the garage, refill and clean up:
4 min. 52 sec. (ave.).
If the coal scuttle is full, subtract 30 sec., if I have to open a new bag, add 1 min.
Do it 3 times a day, 8 AM, 5 PM, 11 PM. (if it is cold).
Time well spent!
