PostBy: Freddy On: Sat Apr 18, 2009 6:29 am

Sugary coffeecake of the sideboard & all the coffee you can stand. Come right in, join us for a cyber coffee and you'll leave feeling much better.

No, cake for me, thanks, although it looks delicious

You are so right about this being the longest week in history! Today is already booked solid. Last night was the last chance of frost in the area according to the almanac so that means the garden is going in this morning. I'm also doing some flowerbeds and general outside clean up. Then there is the requisite midday youth soccer game. The weather should be beautiful. This afternoon I'm putting the finishing touches on my spring stove maintenance with a light coat of paint. I’m excited to say the least. Then I can look at getting set up for next year.

Hey Freddy, do you or the guys hanging around for coffee have any ideas on how to construct a filter of some kind to put over the blower fan exit vents on my Harmon Mark II. What happens is that the fan on the back of the stove blows over a baffle inside the stove, picking up the heated air and distributing it out the front of the stove via two unfiltered vents on the upper front. It just occurred to me that since this baffle or horizontal sheet of metal builds up a lot of flyash, the heated air is picking up flyash as it passes over the baffle and sends it out to my living space with the heat. Can you think of anything I can do to filter the air at this point? Obviously, I don’t want to block the heat but if there was something I could do…. Maybe I just have to live with the extra dusting but if anyone can think of something to try I’d appreciate hearing it. Would something like the metal filters in my kitchen stove exhaust fan, attached on the outside of the stove with magnets work? I could attach the magnets with furnace glue? That way the filters would be accessible so I could clean them often. Any thoughts? Thanks for your thoughts!

Well, time to tackle the to do list. Have a great weekend! Enjoy your coffee. Lisa

Morning guys,

I am not a coffee drinker but the coffee cake sure looks swell.

I am off at noon to deliver 8 tons of wood pellets, I realise this group is all about coal but a guy has to make a living. Have a good day all.

In some cases I've uses 3m scotch bright for a make shift filter. Just give it a light spritz of wd-40 to pick up the dust. You could use the magnets to attach it to the stove. Otherwise see what Home-Cheapo has for filter material. Good Luck!

Lisa, Our FireplaceXtrordinair has a filter on the blower INLET. It looks like the Scotchbrite-like material. Its easily removable, and I clean it 2 or 3 times a season. Our DVC-500 Has nothing for filtration, and this summer I will be adding some holders for a filter on the blower's inlet. I can reach this inlet by opening a side door on the stove. No need to shut down the stove.
Are you planning to place a filter on the OUTLET of your stove? That may backfire, as dust, fly-ash, and such will tend to remain in your stove's ductwork, so when you removed the filter to clean it, ALL of the dust thats in there, will come shooting out into your room :fear: . You really want to place a filter at the INLET side of your blower, if possible.

They make hot air furnace filters that are rubberized hair. Buy one and cut it with (old) scissors and make it fit the intake. As suggested the intake is the proper place, it's cooler there also.

Missed out on the coffee cake :cry2:
Just got back from a scout overnighter, pretty chilly but fun. Warmer today and looks to get much warmer here out west.
Man I wish Freddy was my neighbor :(
