I love the warm morning stoves too. My grandpa had one at his hunting camp. I remember when I was around 9 years old going to the camp in the winter and sitting beside the warm morning soaking up the radiant heat. Such precious memories.. :)

I think he needs a furnace type stove with forced air to distribute heat thru duct work. Is there such a bit burner like that? Or is the Hot Blast and Claytons (US Stove appliances) that only produce those?

My dad had an aunt an uncle who heated with a Warm Morning stove and Ohio lump bit coal in a small S/E Ohio town that somehow time seemed to have forgotten. Maynard, Ohio. I remember spending nights there as a child, with the Warm Morning stove sitting in their living room. Didn't really know what it was then, but thanks to many pictures posted to this forum I do now. I remember it being toasty warm.

Anything changed since 2014? Hoping some company came out with something better.

I'm planning on getting something new in the next year. Guess it doesn't have to be new, but I have old and now it's time for something airtight and easier to use. Even the outdoor boilers would be on the list for good candidates. I saw lots of them at the Paul Bunyan show this fall but nothing that really stood out at me.

If you're looking for a furnace, a stoker can't be beat. It's fairly easy to modify the combustioneer 77's into a "furnace" vs. the freestanding stoker stove they are now. You could use them as a stand alone space heater, but, they're kind of ugly for that in a house. As far as hand-fired stoves go, I don't know that anyone makes one new specifically with bituminous in mind.

One of those stokers looks to be the ticket, if they only still made them. I haven't just run across any of these, guess I'll have to start hunting one down. Ideally a boiler version would be nice for what I'd like to do.

I'm normally all about old stuff, but I wish I could buy something new this time.
