Bringing this back up to the top in the bitty forum.
The Iron Fireman stokers were the predecessor to the Wil-burt stokers available today.
The biggest problem we would have today, is the boiler. the old hand fed boilers that the stokers were
designed to work in, were huge, and finding a reasonable size boiler to bring into your basement will be a challenge.
Maybe some of the EFM, Gentleman Janitor, Van wert , etc boiler vessels could be used, with a custom made base. Not sure, A bitty stoker needs a flat area around the firepot for ash collection and clinker formation. not an ashpan area like the base under an Anthracite stoker provides.
