Hello, I am a newbie to using a wood burning furnace and have a longwood Mark VII in the house I purchased and moved into 3 months ago. I've been looking all over town and the internet without much luck for some type of deep metal pan to hold the ashes removed from the furnace. With the longwood furnace there is no ash pan to pull out, but it appears you have to rake them out into some type of container. My question is what do you use to rake the ashes into? I've found a few "ash cans" which would work to store ashes but you have to shovel them into that. It would be difficult raking the ashes onto the basement floor and scooping them with a shovel.
