    My brother hauled several 10 wheeler loads of that junk from a wood mill. I helped him out this summer cutting a splitting it.... Never again! Too much if a PITA!

    Didn't take his advice on seasoning, that OWB is rolling like a steam locomotive.

    I can really appreciate that!! I would have welded the top clevis/pin point while it was on the ground though. My skills would not be trusted for an overhead weld on something that heavy duty!!

    If I had that much time and equipment I'd do something other than firewood.

    Actually....I probably wouldn't. Don't think I'll have to worry about it though.

    My guess is that those guys are heating an old farmhouse and the pole barn as well with the Boiler.

    That is exactly what I was thinking. Think it might have been cheaper to heat with propane after all that.

    That's what the city slickers say too when I say I heat with wood. Apparently I'm an uncouth caveman.
