"Very nice stove. The stove seems to be really built "solid". Like a beauty having a strong body ( I talk about stove here
Thanks for your compliment!
No, no, I knew (hoped) you were refering to the stove. It was actually a prerequesite to get a solid stove. Especially after last year´s letdown with the very elegant Danish stove I was about to buy. That one turned out to be a "Salonofen" i.e. the euro equvalent of a "4 o´clock stove" that was never intended to burn 24/7...
(Plus the Danish Lady was unreasonably expensive, more than twice the price of the FELIX)
"That grate looks like the one used in the Chubby stoves. One thing is that the ash will accumulate easily on the corners around the grate. Ash accumulation is a real problem when burning coal, my Vig ll teached it to me very clearly. One thing that could (just a suggestion) be done is to make a sort of funnel like shape around the grate with castable HT cement to get rid of the horizontal shelfs. Coal ash loves all non VERTICAL forms."
I was afraid you were going to say that
But I am going to burn briquettes made of sub-bituminous coal most of the time (the shape of the firebox indicates, that the stove was built mainly for that fuel). The briquettes are made of ground up coal, which is dehydrated first and then pressed into bricks of 18x5x6cm...
we´ll see how it works...
I feel like a heretic not to go for 100% anthracite, but it is so much more expensive than the briquetts!!
