No Dan, he is fletching them up for his micro 355 ,
ROTFLMAO! Good one Brian. Got my Friday off to a good start.
Looks like you are in for a heap of work, Cal. I used to heat our first house with wood, then the twins came along and had allergies out the wazoo. No more wood stove. No doubt it would hurt a lot more to prep wood these days. Might have to break down and buy a log splitter.
Hey, it worked for Abe Lincoln, splitting rails was a prerequisite for being Prez!!
Not enough need for a splitter to own one, almost all of them will go right in our outside furnace. It will take a log about 12" diameter and 25" long. I just cut them all to stove length, and split the big ones with a maul as needed. Not bad at all after they dry out all summer and fall.
LOL wait til you see the broadhead I use!
I would think the outdoor furnace would be good in many ways. I've heard they do take a lot more wood to stay warm than a stove inside the house.
That might be true with the hot water type of outdoor furnace, but mine is a thermostatically-controlled forced air unit, so it's much more efficient. It doesn't have to heat water that in turn heats the pex and air in the house. Mine blows hot air directly inside the hot air ducts. Our little cabin isn't very big, but I only use 3 to 5 cords a year, depending upon the severity of the winter, of course. I bought this 5 cords for $425 and is more than I need for the whole heating year [Oct-mid May up here]. Nice to have your year's heating paid for in advance.
Good to hear, Cal. One guy I know says his neighbor goes through 10-12 cords a year, and that's just eastern PA.
Wow, that must be close to the cost of propane! I always buy my wood even though I have enough trees to last me the rest of my life. There might be a day when I can't get wood, then I'll be glad I left those trees grow.
