So here is a view that I've never witnessed till now... The dancing blues, undisturbed by in rushing air from the load door being open. Here is a picture thru my new window, their slow dance is hypnotizing 8-)

If I had a coal boiler or furnace I would demand a small window on it just like you have :mad3: ... well done mate!
P.S. were glad you still have your eyebrows after the Oil gremlins came to attack you :fear: toothy

Update on the new window:

So far so good. The air wash system seems to be keeping the window clean. No fly ash at all has settled on the glass. It's nice to be able to see inside while the door is closed :D

I installed a window in my stove. I stole the glass outta old stove I had. I didn't cut the openings any bigger incase i wanted to put the old stuff back one day. I mounted mine from the inside. I'll have to wait and find out how it works.

I guess with the glass on the inside and me burning Bit the window will black out easily.

It is important to use a gasket? I just installed it against the door with no gasket. I figured I need some air coming in anyways. I got to thinking though is it bad to have glass right against door. Don't wanna bust the glass

Gasket not really needed since yer burning bituminous which needs over fire air. As far as breaking the glass, it would depend on how much pressure that bar is putting against it. :?:

I have spacers in there so the bar is flat across the glass and tightens evenly. It should be ok there. I was going to cut the glass but didn't wanna take the chance of busting it so I thought it wouldn't matter. Do u think if It blacks out way too quick I should mount it on the outside so I can hve the air wipe.

I suppose you try it the way you have it, or go ahead and put it on the outside of the door first. I think it will likely get sooty quite quickly with it inside..

I tried it on the inside and it sucked. Blacked the glass out like spray paint. Had to use a rzr blade to remove it. I put it on the outside and put gasket on the ends and not the top and bottom so I would have the air wipe and it works great. Glass is staying clean. So for anyone that wants to do this, installing inside and burning bit did not work well at all. Blacked out after one small fire and there was no scrubbing it off.

I'm glad the air wash is an improvement. Cool man! :up:
