They only do 24 hours if you aren't cranking out the heat... I typically get about 16 hours when it's quite cold out and I'm running hot... I do tend to run a lot hotter than William does...

Good so im not the only one. Thats what im seeing healthy 14-16 hour tends running 400* plus, any longer and there is risk of a lost fire.

Yea, a very easy twice a day tend, even running full out... I used to have to make an 18 hour window fairly consistently and could do it, but that takes practice and good fire management. Kept some charcoal handy for when I didn't quite make it :oops:

Interestingly, that equates well with another size stove that is also a base heater in a sense.

Those numbers are about double what my range can do and the range firebox holds half the coal capacity of what my #6 can hold. I can run the range at lower temps (450-500F right over the firebox) and get about 12 hours, or push it hotter up into the 600F temps and get about 7-8 hours.

well we're back.

had a series of unfortunate events at the RV dealer in Golden CO. that cost me a critical 6 hrs of unintended delay starting back. so I got here at 12:30 this afternoon instead of 6 am.

10was outwhen I got here. grandson said it was out before he got home from work yesterday evening. from the looks of it, it burned down to where it wasn't keeping the flue warm enough to pull thru and ashed out.

no big deal had a fire going and the pot filled to the top of the bricks in 30 mins. currently cruising at 523,BB, 2 MPD's closed, sliver of air being maintained by the bi-metal. from 1:00 till now the house has raised 10 degrees IAT to 60.

no replacement for displacement.
