First Fire in Harman MK III

First Fire in Harman MK III

PostBy: bksaun On: Thu Feb 28, 2008 1:27 pm

Used the charcoal/coffee can method talked about on the forum and in about 40 minutes, had a rip roaring coal fire, except in the corners. Opened the draft back up and they finally caught fire too.

Burning Blashack Nut.

Have the draft open 1 full turn.

Baro set at .06 inches.

Lets see how long it will last. Plan to shake and reload about bed time, 10 pm for us old folks!

I bet it will hold until morning no problem.

Thanks to all for the guidence and suggestions. Lit right up on the first try!

Well with the sweet deal you got on that stove and the ton of coal, you can buy a new camera. :D
