This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.

Squished flex may fit better . What size flue do you have?
I doubt any stove is under 5 inches.

The Coal/Wood Burning M-1941 military tent stove puts out 35,000 BTU. The stove pipe is 4". I've been told coal works the best in there. They are rather inexpensive. http://store.colemans.com/cart/military-tent-stove-m1941-unused-p-1310.html They are offering them at a good price here. Good luck.

Man would that even be enough to heat a normal size room?

:lol: for $89 bucks you better buy 10 of them as you'll probably need them. :roll: 35,000 would keep two or three average sized rooms warm but I really don't think that's a permanent 24/7 alternative although its interesting. Might be nice for a hunting cabin or something along those lines.

:rofl: You guys are great :lol: Oh, by the way 45,000 BTU's with coal. He asked what he could get with a 4" flue, M-1941 is all I know with the 4" Flue. For $89.00, that ain't bad for a little heat. The only other thing with a 4" flue I know of would be a harman DVC-500, which is direct vent.

Thanks for all the help. I am going to look into power venting the oil furnace and using that chimney (with a 6" flue )for a hand fired boiler. I want to go with one that does wood and coal so I could not use a stoker. I do have a limited supply of free wood (4-5 years worth). Any suggestions on a good hand fired boiler? Thanks.

I believe all new boilers shipments are now into next year. Look at some of the threads with the guys who have had their orders in since June and are not expecting them until November. Right now it seems the best bet for most people is what ever they can get their hands on, new or used.

What you need is coal stove that will burn wood which is just about everyone of them from my understanding. They can't list them as dual fule because of EPA regulations from my understanding. Also be aware they don't perform as well as a regular wood stove when burning wood. If you want to burn coal don't get a wood stove tha will burn coal or you're just setting yourself up for a headache. There's is only two available that meet that criteria that I'm aware of. Harman makes one and EFM, The EFM one is actually being reintroduced and isn't available yet. I'm only recommending it based on their reputation. The EFM rep here has one himself.

The Re-introduction of the efm WCB-24

If you want the Harman you'll proabaly have to wait until spring, not sure what kind of wait there is for the EFM but stoker man the EFM representative said there was a lot of interest.
