I trimmed it up a little bit... I sliced out some "dead air" and repetitive motions. Did you notice while I was loading coal all of sudden the pile grew higher by itself?? I cut out 3 shovel scoops when I edited the video
... I usually spend 15 minutes tending the furnace, then it takes about 30 more minutes for the fresh heap of coal to get burning good while the ash pan door is open. During that time, I'm getting ready for work in the morning or doing other things if its evening. Thats when I carry the remote temp alarm (BBQ thermometer) around with me. I do that twice a day normally. When its between 35-45 degrees outside I go to an 18 hour service schedule. Then if its over 50 degrees outside I can idle her way back for 24 hour service schedule

.... There are more tweaks not mentioned in the video that are very important. Its all on previous posts I've made. I can dig up the important ones for you if needed, let me know...
