with my Mark III, I notice some dust coming out my air
control vent when I shake down. I guess I could close
that while I shake, but I'm too lazy. the stove is in
the basement, and it isn't really bothering anybody.
It is better that I shake with that ash door closed though,
last winter I shook with the ash door open, and that
led to more dust.
there's always some fly when I pull out the ash pan,
and take my scoop and clean out the botttom of the stove,
and dump into the ash pan. I guess I don't need
clean out every time, but I do.
last weekend, I took the pan out to dump into my barrel, and it
was very windy.. and I got covered in ash. a big wind came by as
I was dumping and it just covered me.
