CNB; DCrane I recognized the Dutchwest stove to be wood and of thin Asian manufacture.
I have no intensions of purchasing it. I do know a gentleman that has a Russo which he burns wood only in. I do not know if it is capable of coal however he has found it to be adequate for his application (similar heating size to mine) in regard to heat output and easy to operate.
You mention that Russo has been "adapted" to burn coal. That strikes a note of fear in me
because I do want to continue with wood since my six replacement joints are protesting to my continuing to split wood. I love to do it, but my boys have said "Dad, you are done splitting.
We will handle it now". Nice, but they will be gone soon enough with there lives so I must adapt to coal or just go to the thermostat and wait for the PSE&G bill
to come. PP&L in PA. Budget? There is none.
What would $500 get me if I was able? Sound of a fan is not an issue presently.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD2eotezE1I

No more smiley faces, Just a moment of hysteria.
