    Hi Chandler - WOW, I'll say! From burning 7+ cords of wood over a winter's time in Maine to burning pellets in Kentucky! I'm very pleased with my stove, although the blower is a bit noisy. If it works well this winter and reduces my overall heating costs (electric & propane) significantly, I'll look to upgrade next year.
    I joined this forum a short time ago to learn & I've certainly done that. it's been a great experience.
    Cheers, Jon

    It's SOnoco. Everyone gets that confused with the oil company. It stands for SOthern NOvelty COmpany. 'Novelties' are the cones used in knitting mills. That's how Sonoco got its start.
    The plant you are talking about, I think, is in Mt. Sterling, Ky. Been there many times. Nice people. It's now owned by Greif, Inc., a company I went with when we were bought out by them.
