I know that Dysarts sells coal, but they won't deliver where we are. I also discovered that the Dover Foxcroft Agway sells coal as well as the Blue Seal in Bangor. Do any of you know of any other places in my area that sells coal?
I'd greatly appreciate it. We bought the stove from Downeast coal in Gouldsboro and could buy coal from them if we have too, but it's a bit much of a drive.
Thanks for your help.
Also if you have any pointers for newbies that would be great!

I have a Glenwood 208 C cookstove that been burning wood here forever. I'm trying to get the grates to convert that to coal and hooking up a second coal heater on the middle chimney. I have an oil/steam boiler but I' d go broke with that alone so it's back up only. I have a Glenwood Modern Oak 116 in the barn that I may rebuild for my heater. I imagine that's as good a coal stove as most of the new ones? I've just tired of buying truckloads of tree length, cutting and splitting every spring.

I wanted to sell her because I am a bit of a perfectionist and I was missing a few minor parts and had a repair done on the ash pan floor. But in talking to a bunch of folks I decided not to, Emery at the antique stove hospital has the missing parts for me and the repair will be fine until this spring when I will drop her off to emery for a full resto, and have him repair it proper ( or maybe I can find a replacement base). Last year I burned what ever brand blue seal had I thought it was a bit dusty in the bag, I'm buying Reading from dysarts unless you guys have a better brand/price to offer. Jason
