    Cost for installing wood stove insert (New England)

    Seems really high. I didn’t pay that much for my Enviro Kodiak 1700 new plus the install! That was 6 or 7 years ago. I would shop around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RE: Brake rotors

    I am confident my 2004 Suburban 2500 will out-brake my 2005 Nissan Sentra under any circumstances. Although I have to admit that it doesn’t have a stock set up. It had slotted and drilled rotors with the pads to match at all four wheels. However I have had 3 different Suburbans (01, 03, 04) all...

    Unions

    I only hope I will make six figures at some point! I have been teaching since 2001 and my first job paid a $29,500 salary. Yes, I make much more than that now, but not very close to six figures. I have plenty of complaints about the teacher’s union too; they seem to do more to protect the...

    Great post. It will be interesting to see the end results. In case no one has told you, you are going to have a chimney fire with all that pine!!![emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buying an EV as a commuter vehicle - does it make sense?

    I had similar thoughts, but never for an EV. I have a 2004 Suburban 2500 getting about 11mpg in town. I have only a 7 mile drive to work each way. And most of my other driving is in town as well. So I started looking for a commuter car. I ended up with a 2005 Nissan Sentra with 125,000 on it for...

    Automotive oil changes

    I run all my vehicles with synthetic oil. Have been doing that for at least 20 years. They all get the 6 month/6,000 mike oil change the n the spring and fall. Have never run into any oil related issues. I tend to drive older, high mileage cars. My current stable has a 2001 Chevy 5.3 with...

    got to love Mass government??????

    I feel all the same pain. It’s certainly no better here in CT. They constantly find news way to collect money, but never seem to find ways to slow the spending. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    can someone tell me what this thing is called?

    I know it’s not exactly what you are picturing there, but look up “kinetic” log splitters. You may already know what that is, but if not it could be something you might be interested in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    picking up a enviro Boston 1700 tomorrow

    The liner is not insulated and I honestly don’t know the brand. I didn’t really know much about the art and science of liners when it was installed. I’ve learned a lot on this forum since. The first year I burned with this stove the house was a Cape style house. Maybe a 20’ chimney, possibly...

    picking up a enviro Boston 1700 tomorrow

    Just wanted to let you know that I run the Kodiak 1700, basically the same stove as your inside. It’s been going for five years in a 30+ foot chimney with a 6” liner. Never had any overfire issues. Just some additional info to consider. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would say no more than half a cord there. Probably closer to one third. Depends on the length of the cuts. But any dry wood is good wood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    24/7 burners required.

    I have consistently burned about 5 cords a year for the last 5-6 years. Good insulation, 2 story house, about probably less than 2400 sq ft. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Enviro Wood Stoves

    I find that above 20 degrees the Enviro usually keeps up no problem. Above 30 and it almost isn’t even work. Glad you are liking the stove. How was your customer where you bought the stove? My shop closed a few years ago and I developed a small crack last winter. I want to deal with it...

    “Makes sense” is good enough for me when it comes to unscientific thinking. [emoji4]. Logical common sense thinking is what makes the world go round; or maybe there is some scientific reason for that too[emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RE: Plumbing advice needed

    I think you could do the rubber fitting if needed. When we did the addition on our house the plumbers had to tie into the existing cast iron main stack. They did this by cutting a section out, replacing it with pvc, and using a rubber furnco on each end of that. There are three different toilets...

    Totally fine. The fixture serves as a junction box. If you think about the lighting in your house or your outlets, that’s they are done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
