    Found a new place to cut. Not new to me, grew up camping, fishing, and hunting this property. Got a good chunk of wood that was down and dry already. And I good view for the day. Three loads cut, split, and stacked in Boiler shed.

    How do I split these odd rounds?

    These are/were chemical totes from the local farm chemical dealer. Free for the taking, I just had to get rid of the plastic tote. They burn easily.

    Roofing question..gable porch roof into vertical board and batten?

    Proper way would be to get the flashing completely behind the siding. Personally I would chalk a line and cut it evenly and get aluminum at least 6” up behind the siding.

    the Pine I’ll just throw in my boiler, not worth much else. so far an Ash, Maple, and Hickory. Most of what’s down is Ash. It won’t last the winter and I don’t want it to go to waste. I won’t have to split any of it for me. There are about 4 Ash trees that need dropped. And I need a small...

    Started out opening up a trail for a neighbor. He is mid 80’s and can’t use a saw anymore. Started dragging out what was across the trail and went ahead and cut and split a pickup load for him. Got to spend time with the old man in the woods. Doesn’t get better than that. there is...

    Saw recommendations

    Love my 362c-m and the 461. They will do anything firewood related you would ever come across. I run an 18 on the 362 and a 28 on the 461.

    Plans finally coming together

    It’s running, 89 degrees out today with a high of 64 Friday. I am making hot water for the house. Plan on batch burning until it’s needed for heat in the next 2 weeks. I will probably turn AC off Thursday night.

    Plans finally coming together

    The number one reason I did this project. I’ll sleep better at night and feel more comfortable when I go to work not worrying About burning down the house.

    The hated homelite and the 80 yr old grandma.

    Dad still has and uses a Homelite XL. I can set a Stihl 362 or Husky 562 in front of him, both weigh less and have 3x the power, and the stubborn old man will pick up his Homelite. I have no idea how much wood that saw has cut but, it heated our house for 20+ years and still runs. I learned...

    Plans finally coming together

    believe it or not when buying 20’ sticks of type L copper it’s actually only about 30%-50% more over pex. The valves are cheaper, the fittings are actually cheaper for copper than the brass in pex. Sweat valves, unions, and other fixtures are cheaper than pex or FPT with fittings It was only...

    Plans finally coming together

    Finished install. Had a hiccup with a bad 26-99 pump that got warranted. System is filled and bled. on a 48hr shift and I’ll start batch burning Monday for hot water. Looks like heating at night will start next week. I’ll post a review in the next month. Excited to see how this will go.

    I may add that to my upstairs later. It’s the typical old farm house that the upstairs stays colder.

    Plans finally coming together

    The heat exchangers will be at each zone. One plate for domestic hot water on the first zone. The second pump will go to the heat exchanger in the plenum for the house then to a 30,000btu hanging heater in the basement. The third when I install that will be a 50,000 btu hanging heater in the...

    I’m sitting on my porch waiting on 200’ of 1” type L and about $600 in fittings for my boiler. 1” is almost triple the cost of 3/4” on pipe and at least that on fittings. Not to mention most local home improvement stores do not stock anything outside of a 90 or tee. I would consider 3/4”...

    Wood not drying in shed, what now?

    That’s perfect to burn it. At 23% it would have went in my stove without second thought. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does anyone here use CBN wheels on their chain grinders?

    Yes, they keep the cutter cooler and they are more precise. I take far less off with them than the pink wheels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well after 2.5 years of shopping I finally found a tractor.

    That’s a good dealer. 75 and up are made here. The rest are imported in. They are made by LS but are a cheaper version of those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well after 2.5 years of shopping I finally found a tractor.

    TC and TZ series were the best New Holland compacts made. Much better than the Workmaster series today. Enjoy, it will last you a long time. And that is a hell of a price with a loader. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s alive and making hot water. No load on it. Fired it to expand the water out and “boil” dissolved oxygen out. Will add additive first of the week and shut her back down. Burns very clean for a non gasser and I’m stoked. Bring on winter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
