we shall see.It is all hooked up,including water tank/radiator/thermal mass/heat storage unit in one,hah!when it works great,I will post photos,if not,I will deny everything and go back to the drawing board.My objective will be to see how low and slow I can fly it,due to the small space she's in,a 2 room 10 x 24 scale house.Now for some colder weather and to find some good coal...

Are the grates tight enough for pea size? That would be my choice for a long slow burn.

Yes on the upward pitch of the baseboard...air vent at the highest point.

agreed on the pea size.and yup,I have proper pitch on my install.It was fun researching and then going to work.I am about to learn and enjoy hand fired stove artistry after taking for granted the benefits of 520 efm usage at home and in plant.
