looks good bootstrap, but I would have vented the gas furnace with a "B" vent (cheaper) and used the nice interior masonry stack for the coal.

Thanks for all the advice.I decided to go with the power vent. I fired her up tonight for the first time in a week and so far so good.With the power vent I was able to move the stove to a different location to better heat the entire house.This time I hooked up the manometer and reading -4.I missed having her running a week seamed like a year.I will not be careless anymore with my stove.I think I will sit in my favorite chair and listen to her hum along.

I find a chair with wheels on it makes it that much better. :)
