Round Oak man. He sells parts, he might have a mag, or know where there is one ?

So I'm not completely crazy for trying to burn Bit in one of these old stoves!!!

I can see there are definite design differences between them that make one better than the other. These are great reads!

There are quite a few antique parlor stoves that are designed to burn Bit coal and they do it well.

There are a number of models of Oak stoves that are made specifically to burn bit that have an air tube extending down over the center of the firebed to provide preheated secondary air.

There are other models of Oaks that have air feed channels cast into the walls of the firepot.

And, while not advertised for it, we have some members that report burning Bit coal successfully in their Glenwood base heater stoves that still have the secondary air supply "gas ring" around the top of the firepot.
