    I don't know what his reasoning is, but 2x2x8 is 1/4 cord.. not half. doesn't sound like I'll be buying firewood from that guy. If I could get $80 for a 1/4 cord, i'd be in the firewood business and not in the military.

    I just can't stop myself.

    This has been rusting in a damp dark corner of my yard for a few years...I don't know how long because it was there when I bought the house. But it's totally worth $250. Get a jump on the heating season! LOL!

    There is another forum that I used to frequent, that a member actually admitted to doing just that. He would wick the used oil through a cloth, then reuse the result. He really didn't know any better (contamination, detergent breakdown, etc.). But, we forum members swiftly set him straight.

    If i have help and its not huge i split horizontal, by myself i split vertical. But splitting horizontal my back hurts, i have to pick it up and if to big have to let it fall to the side then repick up the big splits to make smaller. A smaller say 10-12 inch round i will split in half and keep it togeather and turn it 90 degrees to spiit it into 1/4 with just one more pass.

    I obviously meant to say 10' lengths but Thisle realized that and did not give it to me about 10" sheets of OSB.

    Yea, i really should of said i know they DONT make 10' lengths. I have visited an OSB mill and am a forester, im pretty good with the materials that are made from my raw material.


    Still funny as heck, "come get this old OSB from my yard that will fall apart each time you try to grab it, but its free"!

    Oh and the other thing about the random junk in the bag on the couch for free. They say there is a pre paid cell phone in htere. OOOh, cells have been popular for 15 years, unless its from the last few years that phone is worthless!!
