This is a full 7.5 Cord log load. Yours will be approx 1/2 this as I had processed a cord and a half when this was taken
30%Red Oak and the rest Sugar Maple Culled logs off my bush that were not good for lumber but make great fire wood
Multi-weight oil has been around a long time
when I started my Apprenticeship in 67 we used 5w20, 5w30, 5w40
10w30, 10w40. 15w40 and 20w50 racing oil and there were others.
They had Multi-Grade oil during WW2 Viscosity index improvers were
first used to make multigrade engine oils in the 1940s.
Normally wood that is kept out of the elements
undercover will not gain any moisture or just
yearly fluctuations in humidity (minable)
I have air-dried lumber in my barn that is at 8%
and has been for 15 or more years used in
fine furniture making.
Well now that's a different kettle of fish (pun intended)
You need a shed of some sort to keep the rain off and let
the wind blow through. The wood will dry pretty fast with
a good wind. On a side note, I will be in St Johns for 4 days
next month. Love the Rock get there any time I get a Chance
When I was in the trade we resurfaced Rotors when we could but at that time the charge to resurface was 20 dollars per. nowadays with labour rates in the 70 to over a hundred dollars an hour, it is much cheaper to replace with 20 dollar rotors than to resurface.
Maybe thing are different in the...
You can buy some very good quality rotors. But why you can buy
a good set for half the price. The next time the pads wear out you
will have to buy rotors again not so many years ago you could machine
rotors and reuse. Nowadays they make them so thin that machining

Your dealer likes to make money. If you don't like the price
don't buy If they don't sell he will lower the price or maybe
he paid to much.
I have tried many brands and always go back to Cubix
Burn very Hot and clean with very little ash.
There is no sign of a shortage here.
Would love to try softies from the west coast
but don't have a spare arm and leg to pay for them.
The Farm next-door sold a 2 hector lot to a lad from the city 8 years ago
He built a very nice house and burns wood. For the first 2 years, I tried
to explane to him the benefits of seasoned wood but he continued to
buy green firewood . He often complained that he got poor heat for the...
