    and this from the same website.....

    "Coke contains little gas, and only few stoves are designed for coke firing as it requires a thick layer to ensure a good fuel economy. Morsø’s 3310 is specially designed for coke firing."


    That really doesn't sound economical to me.... I'm not sure how many BTU's it has in it... plus try explaining that to the DEA officers when they come a knockin' on your door in the middle of the night... "but officer... those 20 kilo's out in the shed are for heating the house... really!!" :smirk:

    Very nice, but, that's nuts. I'll stick to banging a couple logs together. Or checking the weight. Or maybe not caring all that much log to log, because mos tof the pile's dry, and the couple that aren't perfect will be plenty dry about 10 minutes after they go in the stove.

    That is some hornbeam you want to watch it when you cut it as you often find some neat stuff.

    Here is one I used as a railing corner post on a stairway landing.

    Y'know, I was just sittin' back enjoying this thread and then I saw Andre's pix. Suddenly I feel so, so -- violated! Dirty! Ashamed! I think I need to go take a shower :grrr:

    On a lighter note, I actually persuaded Wifey to try the blow-on-the-split test, though only after several tall glasses of her favorite white zinfandel. Unfortunately, I had no splits in the storage ring that even remotely resembled the ones in Andre's collection. Even worse, I didn't even get any pix.

    As for myself, I'll stick with my trusty 20-buck moisture meter from Chinese Frei, rrrrr, I mean, Harbor Freight:
