Looks good! If you don't get that playhouse done you better check for toys before dumping in the coal!! :D

Great looking bin! I'm envious. Toys are nothing, check for kids before dumping the coal in! :)

Very nice job. I see someone has some knowledge about how coal boards go on locomotive tenders. As the coal drops you lift them out.

I have a question about coal bins. My house has what is left of an old coal chute leading from under my front porch into my basement. Most of the old wood is long gone from rot by now, but I am considering using it and putting a bin in my basement. The angle of the slope is 28 degrees, would rice coal flow down metal chute at this angle? I had thought about an outside bin to hold 3 tons, but coal in my basement would be so much easier all around.

From "Mechanics" published in 1884......

Coal will slide freely down a metal chute when the slope is 18 to 23 degrees. The chutes are lined with sheet iron which becomes very smooth with use.

Your slope of 28 degrees should be just fine. Put that puppy in and fill er up!!!

Busted...Don't even think of an outside bin.... Put the bin in the basement, you are way ahead of the game. Stays dry, no freeze up, no going outside in
5F temps and extremely convenient. Plus your coal delivery man will like it too. Coal will dump to basement with the
help of gravity. Ken

I'm my own delivery man. The problem I have with my basement is that space is at a premium so for me to fit 3 tons like I would like to, it will mean some shoveling around in the bin, but it will be much easier for me to shovel it into the bin than an outside coal bin. My dad burned coal when I was a kid and I remember his chute wasn't all that steep where we unloaded it, but can't remember the angle it was. Looks like I have myself a new weekend project.

Thanks for the help.

4 Tons of Blashak nut in there at the moment, probably room for another half ton or so!

Lots of great ideas and info in here! Thanks!!
