That's terrible.. I can see how its easy to take advantage of a new coal burner though. The first year I burned coal I put up a single wall stove pipe chimney outside 26 feet high bracketed to the side of the house because I thought my block and mortar chimney wasn't any good
Nothing could have been further from the truth!! Sulfuric acid destroyed my stove pipe chimney in one winter
I rebuilt the top two layers of block that was deteriorated on the chimney and it works fantastic...[/quote]
The real kick in the shorts is the dealer went strictly Harman this past yr. He previously sold other types new and used and the brother and nephews are the installers. The LAST time I purchased coal from him I asked about the change and his reply was "my insurance won't let me sell second hand stoves"
I didn't know Harman was a insurance co.
