Does anybody know the thread/size of this Allen key set screw? I am out of town and wife is trying to keep stove humming. I can order through McMaster or grainger and get it tomorrow. For the time being she is using a finish nail. I think the assembly is part number 5004237

It does not appear to be an Allen screw. It is hollow with a split. A type of roll pin. The finish nail should be OK until you can fix.

Thanks for the reply. She has it working with a finish nail. I think when I get home I will tap it and put an an allen shoulder bolt in it.

This years heating with Coal was a clear savings. My total gas for the house was cut to about 5% of what I used last year....

I look forward to cleaning her up and building a larger coal bin, I went through 4 tons, I think I could have gone 5.

That's great and was the house warmer with coal compared to heating with gas? I never cracked windows in the winter heating with oil! :lol:
