just wanted to say just how nice it is to not be over heated as in years past with my hand fed.
Not trying to offend the hand fed guys & gals,
Just saying that this is great,.
The Alaska 140 is just idling along @ 150* or so (+ or - depending on where you take a reading),
barely using any coal just waiting for the next cold night to roar right back into action..
Yes I am now a girly man... LOL..
