If you read the ad it doesn't sound like the picture is the entire stack. If you take the midpoint of the dimensions he mentions x the number of...
I was able to check out both his book and the accompanying CD via interlibrary loan. Worth looking into!
I think I "need" a roof brace for my chimney.
This is for an OWB installed in a shed with an existing 8" HT103 14' chimney, running up the exterior...
I use old oak cookies. I like my rounds about 6" off the ground when splitting.
Not in the boiler and not intentionally, but:
I had a few bags of paper and a bunch of cardboard boxes my wife wanted burned. I dragged it all out...
Since we're hitting the free section, here's 75 free pallets:
Wish I had a truck
And make sure you tell your neighbors that the next time your house is on fire, you don't want them to call the fire department.
Yeah, with the OWB I can burn it green, but it's just not right, ya know? It cheeses me off to think that I'm wasting 30% or so of the BTUs just...
I've read this before but always wondered about it.
Once it gets solidly down below freezing and stays there, doesn't the moisture in the wood...
My HF meter (probably the cheapest they carry - no digital readout, just a LED ladder that lights up) crapped out after a couple months. Yay.
Nobody's fault but my own.
Scored five cords off Craigslist this spring, an even mix of ash and maple. It had been dropped sometime over the winter,...
I used generous amounts of silicone caulk in my recent radiant tear-down and re-do (previous owner of my house was an idiot). First fire of the...
Thanks for the tip.
(Cohoctah? We're practically neighbors. I'm in Deerfield Twp)
I have the programmable thermostats set to shut off the OWB at 6:00AM and fire up the propane furnace to bring the house back up to temp....
If it ends up being a truly oddball chain it would probably be worthwhile to swap out the drive sprocket for something more standard.
C'mon, you made this one up! Sounds like a neo-Nazi holed up in a bell tower...
It may just be sloppy reporting, but a wood stove shouldn't be using "vent pipe".
You're all a bunch of knuckle-draggers.
Didn't I see one of those in Star Wars?
That is seriously cool.
Remember, you have a big honkin' restriction in your plenum now. A rule of thumb that I have seen (and follow myself) is to set your blower one speed...
Most circulators aren't designed to self-prime, their mission is to, well - circulate water that's already in the pipe. sdrobertson has you on the...
Does it come in blue?
Never seen someone sell firewood by the piece. If I wasn't so lazy I'd figure out how many BTUs your 45 cents will get you.
You could always sand the primer off and inhale it directly.
Crap - that was on my list of programs to write this winter. Besides ID, I was intending on including BTU content, wet/dry weight, etc, as well as...
Make sure there is adequate oil. I believe that line of Hondas all have a low-oil shutdown switch.
I put off 900 BTU/hr, but that's only if I've had too many bean burritos.
FWIW, my Timberwolf has a pair of grease zerks on the ram.
Burning pine is the leading cause of getting whacked on the head by a tree.
