I've been using my Regency F3100 for about six years and love it. I don't know if other stoves are better, but I'm real happy with mine.
Wind and rain here in the Catskills. Just heard one of my aluminum roofing panels flying off my wood pile. I hate that sound.
You can keep your wood...
I live at ground zero of the EAB (West Saugerties). I've got dozens and dozens of ash on my property and most are already inflicted.
I didn't know it was going to cost me $150 when I clicked on this thread.
A cant hook and pulp hook are in my future.
Which method is that?
Nice stacks. Looks like mine, only nicer.
One day I'm going to start a thread UGLY WOOD STACKS to show off my pile.
It's not as pretty to look at, but I think I'll try keeping it covered all year. I just don't know if I could bare not seeing my wood, all of it, in...
Wow, 23 cords! $40 sounds like a good investment covering that stash.
Have you tried 6 mil plastic rolls. 25' long x 10' wide. Sometimes I use them over tarps or aluminum roofing to waterproof it. I think it's a...
Okay, covering the wood in September makes it better to burn now.
Here's the question. Is it better to expose our wood to the elements from...
Do you cover all year round?
That sounds like a perfect system.
Only thing for me is, I'm in the forest, so I have to cover the piles before the leaves fall. They act like a big...
I like that idea.
I get the feeling fun finds you.
It may be cheaper to buy a 6mil (or 4mil) plastic roll. Also, more waterproof than tarps . . . but rips easier in the wind. Put that over some scrap...
You're kids are right. That's why you're here with us weirdos.
Don't forget to smell the wood when you split it. I like to lick now and then....
I cover my stacks with old aluminum roofing, tarps, 6 mil plastic sheets, plexiglass . . . whatever I could get. I find that even if it's not 100%...
Same thing jumped out at me. That's a lot of hot pipe not to be supported.
Now it's the waste line. Then, it's the bowels.
That's when you switch to dark underwear.
Weren't we talking about wood.
So, your prancing around the living room in your tighty whities and big beer gut. What a vision that brings to the imagination.
As Thoreau said, "that wood will heat you twice."
My wood doesn't get a lot of sun and fungus was growing on it. It was going to rot away. Now, it's nice and dry, begging to be burned. I can tell you...
My first winter here me and the girlfriend sat bundled up in front of the old fire dragon I inherited with the house. I was heating the great...
Let's all agree to atomic at midnight to and see if we light a glow over the Northern Hemisphere.
Ash. Easy to split. Sesaons fast. Burns good.
The house is gone either way.
Hot red head can get you in almost as much trouble as hot red stove.
In this summerly winter I've been holding out on my prime stock. Ten degrees and dropping, my best oak is now indoors.
Woodstoves make cold winter...
My stove hits 750 fairly often. I don't see the problem.
I used to be in the "Don't cover it unless you're going to use it soon" camp. One day late last summer I'm looking at my six, moist, cords of wood...
