Thank you all for the kind words! I have a lot to learn still though. I am going to burn some bit coal tonight that a friend gave me. I found the castable refractory mortar from rutlands at a local shop so thanks Franco b. I am going to buy or make a coal scuttle soon too. I need to hit up some antique and salvage shops because I am addicted to these stoves ! I think I saw some literature for the WM somewhere online. I am going to see what the ratings on it are.

Well I didn't feel like walking to my garage to get the coal out so I threw in some red hickory chips and logs. It seems to burn well not getting very hot though... The pipe is only 170 degrees right now. It's got good draft though and no stove leaks :).
You know what really irritates me though? Trying to find information on google. I type in warm morning model 414a or add the word ad, specs, technical and so on, but all I get is crap for sale. I am the worst google searcher in the world because I can never find historical articles on anything or whatever antique I buy I can never find anything on it because no one else has it lol. Anyone ever come across warm morning ads or specs? I came across a site at one time but can't find it again to save my life.

I put in Locke stove co. Kansas city MO. and came up with a fair amount. But seriously the older I get the more search engine illiterate I feel.

I read some threads about the warm morning stove and how I should use the top damper for wood and the bottom for coal but I can't get te wood to burn hot enough with the top damper instead I need the bottom open... Hopefully I will get a load of coal soon so I don't need to burn anymore wood.

Scratch that... I just fed the fire some oak and had the bottom half open and within 5 minutes the pipe was at 650 degrees :o
I actually had to close all the dampers to get it back to around 500.

I thought you obtained some bit coal that a friend gave you? try it, if it's decent bit coal you may like it.

I have about a bucket full that I will try soon. I am waiting for a cold night though. I am hoping to get a free day off work soon so I can make it up northern VA to get some coal.

Ok it cold enough tonight to try the coal. So far so good!

One question though: @ what temperature is it considered overfire?

I have a magnetic thermometer that has overfire starting at 600f ...

I just picked up 1000lbs of blaschak Anthracite from woodstoves unlimited in Culpeper VA. I'm going to make another 1500lbs trip next time with the trailer. Can't wait to start burning this stuff.

I bought bagged. It was $6.75/40lbs bag . He said discounts start at 60bags (a pallet). I might look into bulk now that I found out there are two other coal burners in Richmond. I randomly found a guy on Craigslist and I'm going to direct him to this site. I have a huge garage where I'm keeping the coal now but once I build a shed right off the double deck I will be able to load a few tons in it. I have the room for 20+ tons though. I have played around with the thought of having a lot of coal delivered and selling it here in Richmond. Maybe coal will catch back on in Richmond. The people need to be edumacated ;)

You may be surprised to find how well that Warm Morning stove burns Bituminous coal, just north of you in Maryland, over near Frostberg there are many Bit mines selling coal at ~$80/ton bulk.

The Warm Morning was designed to burn Bit coal, it has unique hollow corner firebrick that create preheated secondary air passageways, these burn off the volitiles in Bit coal, reducing or eliminating excess smoke. The lower price and shorter distance to the mines may make Bit a serious contender for your solid fuel needs.
