Welcome to the forum my friend. How's that go??? ohhhhh, whatever works. Now I'm going to reality slap ya. For the money you've saved heating wise over the past 4 yrs, you'd think you would maybe, to avoid all that silliness, buy a new grate. Pride's a funny thing (peculiar that is)
BUT, if you're having fun with it, so be it.
Again, welcome my friend
I'd bet if you were shaking properly, you might not have all that clinker problem/situation Where ya from??
Well thanks for the humbling. haha. Thank you. I def. enjoy the 100$ im spending per ton for fuel. And im spending alot less then I did on gas. However, last year for example, I went through 8 tons of coal.
This year, we had to light in november for the first time, Im already on the last legs of my 3rd ton of coal.
( Ive been reading the forum here where people are saying they are only using 2 or 3 tons? wow. ) This is my primary source of heat in my ancient house of doom on the hill. Pride is a funny thing, and I have almost over come it, I am on the usstove.com website right now, with a new grate in my shopping cart.. staring at the "checkout" button..
You mention shaking properly.. I mentioned in a big massive rambling post a few moments ago, that I have nothing but clinkers. I have to shovel out my box many times a day.
....apparently my spud bar madness has something to do with this? ( I do recall this happening to me before the grate broke...as well )
Im from S. East Ohio. 30min from Wheeling Wv.
