I wonder how many of those, who have Internet access, are even aware of this Forum? If I was a manufacturer, I would put a link to this Forum on my website. It would surely cut down on calls to the dealers and manufacturers by people new to burning coal.
coal stove manufacturers & stove dealers should all have links to this forum available to the consumers. I grew up with coal, coal dealers, stoves, stove manufactures, stove dealers and trust me whn I tell you... their is BAR NONE no book, no web site, no manual, no instruction that even comes close to the archives in this forum (many of the folks in this forum are so much more knowledgeable on these fronts than 99% of those available to most consumers including building inspectors, dealers and servicemen). In particular when it comes to vintage and antique coal products, stoves, boilers (on that particular front this IS the ONLY place in world info is available at all!)
