I had an Anchor Oak when I lived In Knoxville. It had a magazine in it that you could adjust the height much like a telescope. The stove was meant for Anthracite as it had no provision for secondary air, except for a check damper on the stove collar. I was burning Bituminous coal and I quickly found that the magazine became a holy terror when all of the 100 pounds of coal in it all caught fire. All I could do was choke off all the air until it smoldered itself out. I discovered the magazine was totally useless and also dangerous when used with Bituminous coal.
I took the magazine out and tossed it. I think that is the fate that happened to a lot of magazines.

Should be very scaring to have that happens with a 100 pounds in the magazine!
A telescope like magazine gives me a good thinking.
Thanks Will.

Thanks for the photo.
But how the anthracite stay in the mag without falling down to the fire pot with a so large gap?
I send photos from a Kalamazoo's chute and from a Merry Bride's chute. On the Kala. the chute seems to be near the fire pot but has a sort of swivel bottom part???
On the Merry Gold the chute is about the same as on mine at first, I did send emails to Gingercreek and they gave me the distance between the bottom of the chute to the fire pot's top for the Merry B.

And today, a lost fire. I knew that I didn't shake the grates enough yesterday night so I pay for it this morning.

Removed the magazine....but this time I removed anthracite and left some ash and some ant in the fire pot.
I did try for the first time this method: I put paper on the ant left in the fire pot, then placed 2 rondelles of energy logs on the paper. Put some pieces of charcoal around and a handfull of anthracite on that.
Lit the paper and a few seconds later the fire was on. About 5 later the fire was burning, I add some anthracite over the fire and 10 min later the blues were there.
Very easy, very clean, no smoke , no odors.
The best since I burn anthracite!

Well it just kind of stacks up there and holds its own together sort of by natural declination

Much wider fire pot.
Nortcan your stove looks clean enough to eat off it.

Do you think the chute could miss the bottom part like on the Kalamazoo? Looks like a sort of swivel end?

Smithy, does you stove have a slot for the over the fire gasses burning like mine shown on the photos?
On mine if too much anthracite in front of the slot would block some air for over the fire gasses burning.
What is the inside diamter of your fire pot liner?

I can't realy say why one would use a swivel. I mean what would you do? Swivel it to where you need more coal? Kind of defeating the purpose of a magazine. Looks like someone dropped an elbow in there.
Mabey they dident have room in there pockets. My magazine works well I have filled it twice and it burns down even.

On the photo it looks like swivel but I don't really know if it's. Maybe it's like William said on a previous post, his mag was like a telescope...Maybe the bottom part is not correctly placed at the base of the chute???

And what is the inside diameter of the fire pot in your stove? Yours looks much more bigger than mine.
