What kind of baseburner is it? How large is it? You should make sure the base burner is completely tight. If it is not then it shouldn't be too hard to do the maintenance on it.
I can assure you that a top quality baseburner from the Turn Of The Century is a far better heating appliance than a modern box stove, hands down. The base burner will burn the coal more efficiently, radiate heat into your home much more efficiently. It will a lot easier to maintain a good fire in it, easier to shake the fire and be cleaner than a modern box stove. The caveat is that you must insure the base burner is in good condition.
Thanks for the compliments on the videos, I appreciate it.
Would you mind taking some pictures of your base burner and letting us see them? I can tell a lot about it from some good photos.
