I'm done for the season--80's tomorrow & Thurs. then back to the 70's for at least a week or so. I'll shake down this PM--open draft wide & let her burn out--usually takes around 3 days. THEN---clean the old girl out real good--WD the tears out of her, brush chimney--close MPD open ash door vents wide & wait for next season

This will be the first time ever, the stoker will be burned down to about 2lbs of coal before it goes out tonite. Timing is everything. The final years tally of coal usage to follow. :clap:

I'm not cleaning it out yet.. I'll wait a week or so..I have a light blub of 60 watts going in the ash pan to keep it rust free until then.. We get cold spells for sure up here...it's going to be 38 deg here tomorrow am...usually when a rain spell like last week. But it doesn't seem to be one coming... I may light it for a day or two this weekend to warm up a bit..
