Idle draft .02-.03 Full firing draft .01-.015 Pretty much right on Keystokers recommended numbers. Idle burn area about 2 inches of glowing coal. On full burn it has 2-3 inches of ash at end of stoker grate. Red nut backed off 14 turns and two sets of three pins at 15 minute intervals. I guess reading this forum rabidly has certainly paid off in getting my boiler dialed in! Thank you all VERY much for all your informative posts!!!



Off season in hot humid days, you'll be adding pins... Rice 5 pins .... Buck up it to 3 groups of 4-5 pins.. I've going to burn rice in warmer months then Buck for colder time of year.
