I wonder if the banking of the coal had this effect? The force applied doing this would be greatest on the rear plate.
Anyone experience this before?
Another call to the master Dean @ Hitzer I guess !
Estimated $$ savings of coal v. oil at $2500 this season ... since I got the stove ... $13,500...cost of stove and installation ~ $5000 .... ROI in 6 yrs $8,500 .. and that don't suck.
If only I could teach my cat to tend it ... stupid cat!
I did teach the cat to use the toilet though .... cost of equipment to teach $25 .... savings on litter : $20/mo ... cat is 4 yrs old...ROI: $960 ... savings of $935 bucks so far.
(and no stink).
