    Hi,

    I live in Media and I can trade you a craftsman tiller. It works wonderfully and I do not need it anymore since my vegetable garden is all setup. This is my first wood stove, so I am a little green on this kind of stuff. I know I need to get split it and let it season for a year from all the advice I am reading on this forums. I would like the smaller pieces since my chainsaw is very small 12 inches and I have no axe and it will be put in my minivan. (Like I said...I am green, but if you pass on me...I understand completely.)

    Thank you

    You are getting excited Scotty. That is Pottstown not Pottsville.

    I'm on tapatalk so without clicking the person I can't see the join date or number of posts. Is he a new poster? Why would a person on a firewood site post that they have free logs?

    He's been here for a number of years . . . not super active though which is why the name may not be so familiar.

    As to why the post . . . sometimes folks are just plain nice, sometimes they are well ahead on their wood needs and sometimes when you have plenty of wood you are willing to barter it away for services or goods which is what the original post mentioned.

    I can confirm that Srbenda is the real deal. I have been to his property and can confirm it is Black Locust heaven. I have taken couple of loads off his hands and would take more, but I am over capacity with what I can store right now and have a pile of Red Oak at a family member's farm that will keep me warm for years to come. Thanks again Srbenda!

    personal message, click on the persons name on the left of the screen where they post and a box pops up. click the "start a conversation" link and you will send them a personal message, which is what like every other forum on the net calls it, but this forum??
