As a new member, l would like to share my coal burning bad
After more than 20Y. of wood burning, l decided to burn anthracite and sold my Everburn wood stove.After years of researches(this forum is a gold mine),l bought a new Vigilant ll coal stove. l removed the restriction plate and realised that the stove had a lot of weak points in the conception. The stove didn't heat very much and was worst after a couple of days of burning. l tried all l could but it never worked correctly.So l decided to do some modif. to the stove. Nothing to do! This year l decided to get back to wood burning but tried for the last time a few modif.
More than 12 modif. some minor some major.With the same house, same chimney, same anthracite(chestnut), the stove became perfect. Much more heat with a lot less anthracite, no more ash build up and no shut down (excepted for a video). l even asked my daughter to perform the 24h. process in the video to show how it was easy to burn anthracite now. The stove must be safe to use and now it is even safer and bullet proof. Now all my family love burning anthracite.(l apologize for my English).
