The scoop AA130FIREMAN refers to can be found in restaurant supply stores, like Mainesource in Wilkes Barre, for beaucoup less.

That is a non sparking scoop, that might have something to do with the price. I never managed to shovel fast enough to create a :blowup:

My question is, what in the hell are you doing working with a metal scoop in an environment where it requires the use of a "non-sparking" scoop?

Yeah, cool! Freddy just sent me the new ashpan he made me. Perfectly constructed I might add without the benefit of pictures. Now the potential of getting a new coal scoop. Wow, I must be living right! Lisa

Very nice craftsmanship. Here are some links for you all that can not wait until Tim is able to turn them out and distribute them. I have used this company for years and I have always had good service from them. I personally like the aluminum scoops the best. Good luck.

That's right ... I remember that huge fire at the sugar plant in GA a few years ago. Up until that point I never knew sugar dust was explosive! I knew it burned, but never really gave it much thought. I see the value in having a non-sparker in that environment now. That was one hell of a fire!!
