We all have needs and wants to assist us in the processing and burning of wood. Below is my list of goodies: VC stove and parts to update- 475 Replacement NC30 stove- 800 Stove pipe- 850 Husky 359 w/bars- 585 Stihl MS211- 210 Husky 28 ton splitter- 1500 Total investment 4420 Have not had heating oil delivered since Nov 2010. Given normal conditions, would have deliveries in Jan, May and then Nov, Jan and May again. Typical deliveries were 800-1000 dollars. To date I have avoided 4 deliveries totaling 3200 minimum savings. Staked my oil tank last month and had 260 gallons left. I should be good for next winter as well with oil. Break even is just around the corner. Right now I could sell the equipment and have no wood issues for 6-7 years easy.
