Hi Berlin we have talked before about bit coal and wilburt stoker.I would love to do the bit but here in wisconsin anthracite is coming more readily available so I have better availabilty.It is a bit spendy but all in all it outweighs a gas or oil bill wood is even get hard to find because everyone is burning it and loggers leave nothing no more.I to have built many stoves and i seen your comment about stainless being hard to work with.that is true but it does last longer and i am a stainless welder so i have the equip to make it easy.I have not mastered the anthracite in my owb yet but my new design should suceed.I am on to the making the grate and what you said about the grates sliding and not tilting is exactly what i was goin to try like fingers that slide in between an cut ash out of way.Qustion is you use bit coal will this work with the anthracite your input will help me before i fab them thanks

Hi sarge. If you want to see a sliding grate syst. you can look at the beginning of my short video I made with my daughter to show the modifications I made on my Vigilant11. It's right on the beginning of the vid. At the first time I did have short steel bars welded over the grates to make them more agressive. After that I did have problems and decided to remove some but after a while I realised that the problems weren't from these steel fingers. With these raking fingers the shaking is really more easy and I will add more next Spring. Having these fingers of different lenght and welded with an angle position help. Good luck
