Hi John here. Been in NJ too long. Burned wood in 70's. Switched to Efel combo wood / coal, only burned coal with it. Down sizing and no room for stove in new location. Hope to learn much from forum, hoping to locate to Tioga co. PA in year or 2.
Regards

Well hello.
Firstly I am from the UK, I don't currently burn coal (as soon as I move house I will). I've been lurking here for some months but I wasn't sure if it was American only.

I have an obsession with coal. My grandfather burned it and I liked nothing more than tending the fire. My sister lives on a boat and she burns wood and formed briquettes.

I'm kind of ashamed to say, I keep a chunk of "bit" in my bedroom and light a bit with a small blow torch (with Windows open) just to enjoy the smell am I weird?

I would really like to enjoy a fine bit of anthracite but I can't justify buying a bag of poor Welsh stuff just to enjoy. Shame.

I've got a few interesting documents regarding coal briquettes in the UK. Not sure if they will be interesting. Should I post them here or elsewhere or not at all.

Thanks for reading,

Nessumo, UK

Welcome N. Keep us posted on your house move. You can post those tid-bits in Hand Fired Coal Stoves if you'd like. Again, welcome to the FORUM. :) It's a dead time of the year coal wise but your input will be appreciated.

Hi folks,

My name is Greg. We live in the center of Connecticut. I've been heating with a hand-fired coal stove for about 10 years. We have an oil burner for heat and DHW, however it is only used for DHW.

I've been considering some form of stoker for the last couple years. This past week, I jumped in and purchased a used EFM boiler (old style). This is now my fall project. I intend to get it ready and install it in series with the oil furnace (hydronic). This will allow us to go back to using the thermostats in the winter, and still realize the economics of coal. Plus - who doesn't love the blue flame of anthracite...

I've been skulking around this site for some time and finally joined. There is a tremendous amount of great information here !

Welcome to the forum, Greg. Sounds like you've done your homework. Be sure to start a thread when you start your install and add lots of pictures.......we love pictures.

P.S. Don't forget to add your location to your profile. It will help us to help you should you need it.

Hi my handle is Blazer I live in Norfolk NY with my wife and son just bought a Hitzer 30-95 to heat my cellar and to maybe save on firewood we burnt about 28 face cord last year in my boiler hoping to eventually get rid of wood boiler cause so far the coal seems nice. http://imgur.com/a/3MI4y
