Those holes look really big now.. but you burn Stove size coal , right??
And the grate on the SunnySide rocks, right? it doesn't turn or twist??
Did you cast those curved and tapered firebrick?? nice job !!
Greg, now the stove burns and I just want to let it run a few days before the Spring time, then I will send some measures of the holes and some feed-back... yes the holes are big, this morning I try the shaking and it looks like that it may work but as you know, only time will tells...
I burn nut, I got a few stove bags but just put a few pieces on the bed only when very cold and when the stove runs high about 350 *F
but stove ant seems not the best for this stove. The grate just rotates, but not a very big rotation, maybe 1/8 of a turn? I should check that too. It swings up at the back when you want to get it out of the stove.
I used the r.cement semi-hard sold in a 50 pounds box, cut it in slices then placed the slices vertically in the front, tap it with a small hammer to shape it.
