But he doesn't sell Leisure Line.
I wasn't trying to steer anyone one way or the other, just mentioned it since he has been the resident Keystoker guy for a long time and many people know him as such.

This coal Stoker boiler is for the most part my only heat source. I Plan on keeping the pellet stove for another season for emergency sake. Would like to remove the fireplace and replace with a wood stove or pellet insert in future.
Another idea is toeither squeeze some enough cash for a masonry chimney, though I'm getting old , to say,so I'll have to pay to put one up, maybe the Amish ? orrrrrrr
one idea was to build a small boiler room or shed for the stoker boiler? But the extra ambient heat would be nice in my cellar. what is minimum feet for chimney?

my house is a cape cod so chimney will be like 24', a shed it would be only 12max
