It really didn't improve coal burning, and didn't burn off the methane top gases like it used to before, so I removed the tape and returned it to stock configuration. I called Harman and talked to them about that, they said the stove should have air flow over the top of the fire.

I have a Harman I that burns wood superbly, but it would tend to be a bit hungry using the coal grates. It is listed for both fuels though by the mfr.

Not sure about the box stoves, but all my junk mail and personal papers, that are no longer needed, go into the kitchen range. Right on top of the hot coals. I just don't dump them all in at once. Crumpled up in a ball, one piece at either end of the firebox at a time. When it's burnt to ash, in goes another.
It's clean burning heat !
