Shutting down
« on: April 14, 2019, 08:28:53 AM »

I have a couple of days off from work later this week so I'll take a moment to shutdown my Edge 550 HD for the season.  While she's still hot I'll scrape as much of the creosote goo from the walls and roof of the firebox making sure I pay special attention to the corners.  With the warmer temps she's been depositing quite a bit of creosote on the walls and ceiling of the firebox.  Once I'm satisfied that all metal surfaces are clean I'll spray the firebox with NEW motor oil, put a bucket of the chimney and wait for the next heating season.

Getting close to shutting down here too. A few more nights in the 20's are forecasted then it looks pretty mild. After nearly 7 months, im ready.
