Just found this thread, so a little late on my comments.

I have been searching for a coal basket/magazine to fit my Round Oak D - 18 and found some but I would have to buy the complete stove, therefore my search continues.

I have a copy of the stove operating instructions for a E - 18 that was included with the purchase of a stove. It specifically indicates how to operate the stove with a soft coal basket or a hard coal basket. Plus it shows a picture of each basket design.

If any one would be interested, I will scan and attach an image.

I am really excited about firing up a coal load in a D - 18.

Hello again...

I'd be very interested in seeing (at least) the pictures of the coal baskets used... for ideas.

I tried to burn coal in my D-16 last year and didn't have much luck, but I was never certain whether my draft was inadequate for coal, whether the grate was too small or whether the operator was just inept. My grate is not the original RO grate... it works fine for wood, but jams readily on small bits of coal... making it almost impossible to shake down a coal fire.

I'd like to try coal again at some point, but not until I've got a grate that has a chance of working better. (I still have the original RO grate, but frankly I don't think it's much better suited for coal.)

Thanks.

Peter B.

Thanks very much for the scans...

Still a bit hard to visualize the coal magazines, but I see the coal grates are obviously different from the wood.

I will have to do some careful measuring of the firebox this spring and see if I can't find or 'engineer' a grate that could possibly work (at least passably) for both fuels. That may be a long shot, but I remain intrigued by the coal alternative, and would like to have the choice to burn either fuel... as possible. I now know the 'rules of engagement' are different, but it really seems like one grate style could be made to work... if only...

Wishful thinking, perhaps.

Thanks Again.

Peter B.

yeah, those are great scans! What will it cost for the whole manual?

The scan is all the material I have...there was not a multiplie page manual, just a two part instruction folder.
