brought my new toy home today

Bought a couple year old Keystoker HF 90 today from an old lady my mom knew. Still looks great, cept for broken handles. I think the old duffer put gaskets on too thick and smashed em trying to crank the door shut. It was a package deal with at least 3 ton of coal for 1300. I think I did pretty well. :D It was a Bi*** to move, and i only got one load of coal today. I don't mind it though. Part of me really can't wait to light up a stove full. But I gotta burn the last of my oil before i stick the furnace in the corner. :roll:

you might want to save the oil burner for those below zero nights. :D

Save the oil, in a few years you can sell it for enough to buy a new stoker. :D

didn't hear this from me.:) alot of guys hook up both flues to one chimney. sure it's not the thing to do. do a little research. just have to make the setup , so you can inspect and clean it out when needed.even with the cost of oil , i'm glad i have backup heat incase the coal burner needs a part , i have to wait for it or for those nasty winter nights.
