Got my Baro Damper at the local hardware store (Cheapo, I know, but only temporary for now). The Draft Meter and the CoalTrol came today! The Baro Damper and meter will be hooked up soon (Separately), but the CoalTrol will be for another stove coming soon. Thanks Neil! Got it really Fast. I wanted to get it and read about it first, I don't want to rewire my Keystoker at this point. :)

Supposed to get really cold this weekend, sunday is going to be -5 to High of 5!!! brrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Wish me luck and will post pics when available, now that I found the digital again after the move.

Note: The CoalTrol doesn't require these Items, I just want to hook them all up so I can monitor everything.!! (kinda of a control Freak!) :)

Actually, got the feed rate adjusted, my stack temp is around 200-230 now and I am not wasting or overburning now. I may not need the baro, I feel better, it was getting really HOT (250-270) previously, I was pushing too much thru it and it was falling off the end still burning.

It was -2 last night and it was barely keeping up, I think the furnance only came on once. The house is chilly, but the stove is maintaining for now....

I am getting clinkers now, that I never got before, so I may have a better draft from the chimney (power vent before, was very constant). See attached, maybe this is normal, but I never saw that many or that big before. This look about right?
