Got a question for the 'experts' here. The common term here for a stove where the combustion fan is driven either by the stoker motor itself or only runs with the stoker is a "tri-burner" stove.
I don't have a problem with the term, but I DO want to know where the term originated. What's "tri" about it? Should it be "try-burner" - as in Try to make it Burn??
I'm sure somebody here has to know. Matthaus? Greg?
Maybe it would be a part of a residential stoker stove history lesson?
