That's what I think too, especially with large stove sized pieces.

A better explanation.
Moisture
Moisture is an important property of coal, as all coals are mined wet. Groundwater and other extraneous moisture is known as adventitious moisture and is readily evaporated. Moisture held within the coal itself is known as inherent moisture and is analyzed. Moisture may occur in four possible forms within coal:
Surface moisture: water held on the surface of coal particles or macerals
Hydroscopic moisture: water held by capillary action within the microfractures of the coal
Decomposition moisture: water held within the coal’s decomposed organic compounds
Mineral moisture: water which comprises part of the crystal structure of hydrous silicates such as clays.

Very interesting. I will see how the stove size works with some more drying days.
Thanks all.

Pierre,

Can't hurt to try it but I will say, like most and maybe more then other sizes the stove like a deep bed. This helps with the recovery time of a large reload. I sometimes find myself walking by the stove, stopping and poking the middle and throwing a scoop on inbetween the usual 12hrs. This just helps with a faster recovery after a proper shakedown Ithink.

The magazine option would probably help (for me) as the coal would already be hot when you shook the stove. I may try and fab one up and see. DJ gave me the dimensions.

Steve, what I do now is toping the nut with a "few pieces of sove" on it. No need for a shovel to do so :)
I will see if the modifs on the grate helps for the center of the grate clearing. Except for the less ash from the center of the grate, that stove works very well. Maybe due to the ""enclosed"" set up, the stove gives more heat to the entire house than the V2, that according to my notes from previous heat output, ant pound/day, house temp.
Viva American Antique Stoves :) according to the small cat :!:

Back here again but near the end :!:
I found this to improve the warm air circulation in the house. They work 24/24, no noise, no electricity :lol:
It was hanged on a customer's garage wall. Very rusty when I got it but the guy gave it to me soooo :roll:

My admiration, M.Pierre!
The entire thing is very tasteful - but I really LOVE how you have continued the chrome rail of the stove on the sides of the wire frames :up:

Thanks keith.
In fact I think that it's maybe too much amazing :?: the reason is because the stove for a ??? reasons seems to be too much performant :D . I look back many times in my heating book to compare this heating season to last year one and the Sunny gives me more heat in the house than the Vigll did. Probably the convection system sending most warm air at the back and the base burner syst. also working at the back bottom of the stove, the back of the stove is where the basement air handler pulls the warm air and send it in the basement where the central air handler continues the warm air distribution in all the house rooms.
I seriously think that I will have to let the Golden dies for a few time. This morning was -14*C outside and 24*C in the house sooooooo

Thanks Steve.
I looked for something for a long time but found nothing that could fit there. My wife told me so many times that before I put the things around the stove : all is correct and there are so many details on the stove, you must not add anymore gadget...but when she saw the angels in place, it was all-right.
It was having 4 hooks at the bottom for hanging what????. I removet the hooks and put rivets in the holes, painted...but no sand blasting this time :D
""Probably"" the last work on the hearth :roll:

Thank you my far away friend.
For the all around addictions, that was a continious ""war"" with my wife. She was always saying that I must not put so many things around a stove having so much details...you see the picture :mad: But now the peace and love are back again around the hearth :)
How are you doing there with your stove?

Doing very well with the Felix.... still don´t have a thermometer but stick to my Grandmother´s heating-instrucions and get 12-14hr burns out of 12lbs of briquettes. But need more glossy brochures to put on top of the coals - can´t wait for saturdays newspaper to come because that is always packed with tons of glossy advertisement brochures! How much I hated it for the same reason just a couple of months ago! :lol:

Nortcan..... Glad to see that the Sunny Side is doing so well. But... one thing... When you are talking about temperatures could you please change celsius to fahrenheit. Down here I 'm not used to that type of heat measurment and I don't want to spend all weekend trying to figure it out. :lol:

Thanks buck24.
Sorry for the temp. -14*c = 7*F (about)
24*C = 73*F(about)
