Overnight Coal Burns with 10lbs of coal

Overnight Coal Burns with 10lbs of coal

PostBy: dcrane On: Thu Oct 24, 2013 6:33 am

temps about 40ish I had no intentions of burning through the night, but only to take the edge off "into" the night... but upon waking up after 8 hours... still churning away with low even heat (who needs wood... I don't need no stinkin' wood toothy), It amazes me at how unbelievably horrible a mistake it is for just about anyone on the eastern half of USA to buy a wood stove :shock: Must have been some big conspiracy 50 years ago to push "wood" around here (or maybe it was simply "free" back then (which is still about the ONLY reason anyone should ever buy a woodstove, and even then its "questionable").

P.S. Blaschak coal is pretty impressive after testing it 2 days now. There is no denying this is quality coal in anyone's book! anyone living next to wherever their mines are is a luck son ma biatch :mad:

Its great. When your taking the chill off the air at night and the stove forgot it was supposed to go out! ;) Last season I wouldn't be able to get the lower temps as I would fig-it and poke around underneath too much and have that fire running way too hot. You must be having mild weather. We had lake effect snow last night and this morning. I woke up to around an inch of snow and pitch dark at 7:00am. All I saw was a red glow with blue flames from the night before and two cats stretched out on either side of it. Usually they come right over as our dog is still sleeping and is upstairs at night with the kids, he doesn't get up until my little one does. I think he thinks he is the protector. Well the cats usually come over to me as they are hungry and looking for attention as the kids have the cats but dad takes care of them, (not sure how I fell for that one) but we have no mice! Anyway, 75 degrees in the house and they wouldn't budge off their spot to come over. The stove has been running for 3 weeks now and the hearth is in a permanent state of warm. Everyone comes over and walks up to the stove now and warms up or sits on the warm fire brick. I have furniture but most seem to sit on the hearth. I told the wife that I'm taking back most of the furniture as no one is using it anymore.

wowsers, i don't want to hear that yet.

i'm down here in the south west corner of Elkhart county south of South Bend and we have not seen any snow or sleet yet.

my boss had to go to Chicago yesterday afternoon and said he hit lake effect going and coming thru Michigan City with full coverage of grass areas.

working outside in open barns and paved lots all yr. i'd rather have -20* and 30 mph winds ALL winter than the first inch of snow.

Thats ok let them have thier wood stoves. More coal for us. Also enjoy the oil truck driving right by my house. Very happy with Blaschak also. Tend before work and stove is still good when I get home. Can't wait for the really cold weather to test. Low 28 degrees come Monday night. Matt

Little Peach the convenience store? Never knew they sold coal. Course I haven't been in one since about 18. Didn't know they were still around. Good score. Matt

Guy's you do know you can and should fully load the stove and just keep the intake air really low. The fire need never go out. On warm days I just idle the stove down to warm. My MarkII will run 100 degrees for 48-60 hours without touching it at all. Then you open the door, get it up and going good, Shake down, add a bit of coal. Shut her back down. For instance I keep the spinner open 1/8 turn for "low" the normal is 1 full rotation. The fire will look like it's out. But the stove will just stay warm.


Enjoy!

I was letting my stove go out (thats the point)... I was not firing up for the winter yet and had no intentions of filling her up knowing i was letting it burn it only clean out a full firebox (though im starting to re-think that decision). I made a simple small 10lb fire to enjoy that evening while watching the game and the damb thing was still going in the morning :eek2:
It just surprized the heck out me! :lol:

@DiPippo , yes the convenience store lil' peach (I did not know they sold coal either until I walked past the busted up pile of bags on their front sidewalk)... i gladly shoveled it all up for them :lol:

Once you get the knack of setting it low. You will never "let it go out" till may. The low low temperature is kinda like the "heat" from a light bulb, it will take the damp off and that's about it. At these low setting you will use less than a Hod every two days.

Just remember to shake it down, No it won't actually run forever. Fire it up good and hot before you shake it down. Keep it totally full.


Make sure you have a working CO detector.
