You should not need a manual damper with a coal appliance, if you do, it would be a most rare occurance.The manual damper after the baro is a good way to kill yourself and your family
. I respectfully request that you remove it immediately to prevent that from happening. If you use it or it swings closed by itself, your home will fill with CO escaping from the baro.

You need to find a new friend. The pressure differences between the stovepipe and room are extremly small when dealing with coal appliances, it would not make a gnat's eyelash flicker. You need a manometer, not a step ladder.
