Clearances are tight. If I get fat I'll never see the back of the boiler again. :o

Automatic is almost boring, isn't it?? But what a feeling of accomplishment.. and now you can finish that paperback you started 6 months ago.. :o :lol:

I just love going out to the boiler building only once every two days.. toss in a few buckets, take out the ashpan.. look at the fire,, and give the boiler a pat on the tri-meter.. and affectionate pat.. :D

Looks nice John. I missed your video last week. I had to download Silverlight tonight to watch your new toy. I need to make a decision on what I need here. I am getting to old to shovel coal. :cry:

Yep, that's the fines. It's one day's worth of fines. I could get away with pulling the lever every few days, but I'm a little obsessive about some things. :notsure: I don't remember when I took the ash out last, I think it was sometime on Monday :D but it will be due tomorrow. The tub I have is a little too small for the compartment, it needs emptying faster.

ONE DAY of FINES???? Welll, its still a new toy. ;)
Don't pull that lever too much, you'll go blind :eek2: :fear:

Tractor Supply has the square tubs. Prolly holds more than the round ones.

The TSC in Blairstown didn't have them. The one I have I bought there, it's similar to the #1 utility tub I need but a few inches shorter. I plan on picking up a few more so I can just swap them.

They can order them for you. Did you get a copy of their catalog? You might even be able to order them from their website too.

I have the catalog, I'll have to look. JC sent me the link to them on the TSC website. I got a TSC gift card for Christmas.

Nice ash. ;)

Any idea how much coal you have burned since "lift off"? It has probably been idling the last couple days.
