burning fresh paint off stove

PostBy: hugg On: Mon Sep 08, 2008 2:43 pm

Hi all, I just fired up my hand fired stove after painting it :D . I took the advice of some of the people on this forum by starting a fire in it now when the new paint can burn off (with windows open) WOW! what a nasty smelling experience :sick: . lots of smoke too. I am glad my wife was at work cause the whole house was filled with smoke. Would recommend other coal rookies like me do the same. :yes:

What kind of paint did you use? I've used Rustoleum High Heat and never even noticed it.

I also used the Rustoleum and it smoked very little but it did get a little smelly-not bad though. Much better than paints I used years ago. I also used Krylon High heat on some of the pipes on the boiler and it performed the same as Rustoleum. All in all it was "Not too bad good".

And how big of a fire was in the stove? :shock:
You want to 'cure' the paint not not incinerate it! :lol:

I dont have a thermometer on stove. it was not hotter than an average coal fire and i am judgeing that by the fires my father used to have in his coal stove. I am new to burning coal in my own house. however my father burned coal for 25 years and i tended to the fire a lot growing up. :D
