I just got one of these little jewels - I know some of you have burned them for 30 years, so I have one dumb question: How are you supposed to shake the grate? Inside the ash door, the center pull-out of the grate has an arm with a tiny little hole in it. Is there supposed to be a tool that engages that little hole? Are you just supposed to grab it with a gloved hand? I've set welding gloves on fire that way before. There's clearly no shaker mechanism that's supposed to be connected to it permanently. While writing that, it occured to me that a tool with a socket to fit over that arm might be the answer.
I'm prone to re-inventing the wheel, but I'm sure there's a simple answer. I'd appreciate it if any of you could help me. Thanks!
