Bluemax and I returned today from 500 mile roundtrip to Ashland Ky where we retrieved from some poor fellow a nearly mint Combustioneer 24FA Will-Burt stoker furnace. The very same furnace as I have come to love. Frustration no more when we get this installed in place of the Hotblast! Will post pictures as we get put together.

Finally got it installed Friday night. I underestimated the time it would take to put her together though. As wood is his only source of heat we were committed when we took out the hotblast. 8 hours later we were firing on coal and finally another happy coal burner has joined us. It is so convenient I couldn't imagine ever going back to hand feeding

This was a 500 dollars craigslist find. Plus 150 in diesel to go pick up. A very well taken care of one owner!

I don't think you could beat that price 8-) . Someone not too far from here was recently selling a brand new, still in the crate stokermatic (warrior model) for $1000 IIRC which is a similar type furnace.
