Well, Harman pellet stoves are an underfed design (but not the coal stoves). But, looking at the pellet stove design, I don't think it would last 5 minutes as a coal stove......
It probably wouldn't be that hard to miniaturize an old fashioned underfeed stoker and design it to a Keystoker sized free standing stove. It could still use off-the shelf small gear motors to drive the auger, and blowers, etc wouldn't change. Only the burn pot, tuyeres, and auger would be the new parts.
Dang, that would be cool!
