Darren,

I live in Amityville and have a have a variety of coal stoves.
Hand fed to a home made boiler. PM me if you are interested in
taking a look. I'll be out all this afternoon, which is unusual, but
am mostly a home body the rest of the time.
I work with a couple of dirt racers. I'm sure they know you.

Hello: I'm Helena from NY. My grandfather was a coal miner in PA around 1915. His name was Zagibajlo or Zagieboylo. I probably have family I don't know about out there. My husband and I have a question about a Monogram Coal Stove made in Quincy, Ill.

I posted a question in the Coal Hand Fired stove section because someone offered us $200 for the stove and my husband refused it. While it is old we didn't want to accept too little for it. It hasn't been used since we got it in the 70's. Please check out my post I put on there today ( 2/14)with the size and physical description.
I'm trying to figure out this website. Looks like you have a lot covered.
PS How do you contact me?
Thanks everyone. Helena

Hello to all the members of NEPA. My name is Vic, and I would like to say I just purchased a new AHS-130 2 weeks ago. I made my decision by reading all the informative information from this forum. My journey started as soon as oil hit $3.85 a gallon. I first looked at wood gasification boilers, but my decision quickly turned to a coal stroker :D . After doing research and reading this forum It was a no brainer... Being that I work crazy hours and after explaining to my wife that she may have to load the wood burner up to twice a day if i wasn't around, the AHS was an easy sell. I am looking forward to continue reading about other members comments/experiences as well as contributing my own.

Greetings from northwest Rhode Island! I have no idea how I stumbled on this site, but I'm sure glad I did. The information on this site is just awesome. I'm still reading through the forum to get some ideas for my new house. I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do yet, but it will have a stoker. I just need to find a supplier.

Hello From The Champlain

PostBy: vmi1983 On: Sun Apr 17, 2011 12:38 pm

I am Matt Looby and I live in Wadhams, NY. I live on the NE part of the Adirondak State Park. It's a very rural and wooded area and situated very close
to Lake Champlain. We get maybe two weeks of hot summer days a year. Spring comes late and fall early. Durning summer nights, temps can briefly drop into the upper 30's and 40's. I have been heating my home with oil and an electric heater and I finally made the move to coal stove.

Most of my friends have and use wood or coal. I just picked up a used red enamel Vigilant 2310 from a farmer in Vermont. I am cleaning it and getting it
up to snuff, and then it's on to installing a prefab chimney.

I just wanted to say I appreciate all the information I have read on the forums. Thanks! :D

Thanks Fred! :D

I have the stove grate, side and back walls removed. It was missing three cleanout plate covers! I removed 3/4 of giant vacuum pot worth of ash and well constructed mouse nest with insulation. Previous owner could not get the stove to burn properly; no draft! ;)

See you,

Matt

them little meeces love that insulation,too gritty for me,kept sticking in my dentures. Most of these stoves are a real simple design & it amazes me, as I'm sure it does you how dumb some people are ;) Yep, all that will effect the old draft. toothy
