Has anyone else noticed that his KA-6 has the stove-derived stoker rather than the "old school" Keystoker stoker? I just did a double-take on the picture, but sure enough, that is NOT the "classic" Keystoker stoker.

Here is a pic of another members KA-6 with the "old school" stoker a little further back in this thread:

Is it a cost-cutting move from Keystoker or is it due to the fact that FingerLakesStoker has a direct vent model and Ambajejus Lake has a dual fuel, standard vent model? I'm going to go on a limb and say it's because of the direct vent and it's inability to deal with big draft changes (speaking from experience). The stove-based stoker has the single fan for combustion that runs 100% of the time, and with that, you set up the direct vent to provide your draft setting. The "old school" stoker has the little "helper" fan, but then the main fan kicks in when the stoker runs. That's going to cause a big difference in draft with the fixed-draft capability direct vent unit.

I just found it interesting as I would have never expected the KA-6 to be able to be equipped with the stove style stoker.

I'll be darned. And I thought it was only the Kaa-2 that had the stove style stoker.

Any interest in this puppy? Its a 1930 anthracite Aga cooker (UK). I think I have negotiated a price for the only one left that has been rebuilt. I have never seen a coal stove like it and if the group is interested I will send pics (once I get it). It's a batch hot water boiler and many other things and VERY efficient. I intend to run it this winter in the barn - The girls down there freeze their a$$es off.

The AGA cooker is a stored-heat stove and cooker invented in 1929 by the Nobel Prize-winning Swedish physicist Dr. Gustaf Dalén (1869 - 1937), who was employed first as the chief engineer of AGA company.

PostBy: coalnewbie On: Fri Sep 17, 2010 7:03 pm

So Freetown Fred, let me tell you other things physicists do. In 1935 Dr. Gustaf Dalén demonstrated the safety of acetylene cylinders to a class of students. He assured his students that a flame on the cylinder would be harmless. The cylinder exploded he blinded himself and he died two years later. I hope his lack of common sense did not translate into his design of the AGA. No matter, if you youtube Martha (Stewart) and AGA up comes the promo a young (many years ago) and totally gorgeous Martha who also (we are told) had an AGA in her barn. I don't care where she had it - looking like that I would walk 100 miles over broken glass in bare feet to get an AGA. Am I making a rational stove choice??????? Our boys over here in NEPA could learn a bit about marketing - great stoves - but everybody is so ugly.

Well got up from my rocker and put my most powerful magnifying glass up to the screen. She still looks good. Some of my best friends are Polish and they have beautiful wives but you say she is from New Jersey? C rap you have to ruin an old mans dreams.
