Your apsolutely right! I'm just now rounding the corner from learning how to run the coal boiler to, boy!this is pretty easy!
I bought the 1TDN5 blower from Grainger for my SF160. Works pretty well, although i only use it manually now to just liven up the fire for reload as i have learned how to run the stove as Mr. Harman intended, and it doesn't need the blower in normal operation.
What a great help all you guys have been on this forum, so much great information here
