"Stove Stoker" Helps Handle Big Logs
Anyone who's ever had to feed logs into a wood stove with a deep firebox will get the idea behind this simple little tool right away.
  The new "stove stoker" mounts on the door frame and is held in place by a pair of locking handles. A steel roller on top of the unit serves as a support so you can roll big logs into the firebox.
  You have to remove the unit in order to close the door.
  "It looks too simple to be effective, but it really works," says John Cookson. "It weighs only 11 lbs. which makes it easy to install and remove.
  "The roller is strong enough to handle logs as big as the stove's door. It's painted with 2,000-degree flame-proof paint."
  Four different models are available depending on stove size. They sell for $150 to $200 including S&H. Models can also be custom-built. A video on Cookson's website shows how the unit works. He's looking for dealers.
