Enough from "Hand Feds" been there done that! Lets move on and be productive. Stokers have some value to some of us "older burners"
Lets start conributing some real solutions, if not it would be like some wood burners chiming in every time a hand fed has trouble keeping a fire burning, BURN WOOD! Anyone can burn wood! I really think we can come up with some solutions that we all can benefit from. Here is mine
I put a 2inch diameter hose like an old fashioned dryer hose over the combustion air blower supply which is helping to lower the noise of the combustion blower. Also I replaced my Keystoker combustion blower with a ball bearing one from Grainger. All have helped but I am not convinced we cannot come up with better ideas. Face it we are all trying to support each other with whatever method we choose to burn black gold
Ok I am stepping down off my soapbox
