I am not sure if it can burn coal... I have never considered it. Always liked the ambiance of a wood fire. But it only burns for about three hours with the wood. I have a small house in MT and need something that will burn all night. A friend gave me a newer wood burner with all the bells and whistles... minus the cool antique effect.. that will burn fro 12+ hours on wood.
Maybe I would entertain the thought of keeping this one and trying coal, need to think on it a bit.
When it was refurbished all they did was replace a few bolts, re paint it, and re did all the nickel trim. It was not Re sealed though and is not anywhere close to airtight.
I am curious as to its worth as it stands.
It measures approximately 42" high and a 24" base.
If your not air tight forget it, I burn wood in my stove and get great results, however my stove is air tight, when I get a fire going I can close off the under fire air all the way and keep the over fire air open just a small amount, not even enough to fit a nickel in the open space. I get burns that burn hot and last for hours unattended.
My stove was built to burn Bit so maybe that's why, but a stove that leaks is uncontrollable and will waste fuel no matter what it is..
