I have listed a small one on Ebay: Antique stoves. Used in a home built in 1865.
Took it with me when sold house. Used as heater in my work shop years ago.
Never had crank/grate stroker but managed.

I am currently using a bucket a day water heater. I fire it about every other day. I have it hooked to a water tank and utilize thermosyphon to move the water. I am satisfied with it and plan on tyeing it into the oil fired boiler to heat my entire system.

When you say "fire it every other day" do you mean only start fire every other day and leave it go out till 2nd day and then repeat? Or is it constantly firing and a bucket of coal is added about every other day?

Very interesting.

I guess each WH size is is different, but I just want to know how big of a bucket?

I have one gallon size buckets and 6 gallon size buckets 8-)

I completed the plumbing tieing it into the oil boiler and I am heating my whole house and all our DHW utilizing a plate type heat exchanger. I am using about 10-15 pounds a day of virtually any size above buckwheat that I can get through the loading hatch.

Very satisfied with it. Got it from Marks Supply Shenandoah Pa.
