Shaver Furnace / Re: 1ST POST

No doubt. But this isn't a rookie wood burner either. His thought was that the heat would heat the house quicker then turn off. But the fire got hot quicker than the fan could move the air.

Woods like hedge a locust get much to hot to be burned by themselves in a forced air wood furnace. Someone I know loaded theirs up with just honey locust and melted the duct work from the furnace, and warped the fan and surrounding area. The firebox was fine just the other parts. You can throw a few pieces in each load. Just not solely those woods by themselves.

I don't have the knowledge of guys like Slimjim and Sprinter, but to answer your question. Yes it would be possible. However... I would think you would be much better running two loops. Either both from the boiler, or a one into two using zone valves or such.

Manliness is not lost when intelligence and monetary reasons are used, using saved time and money to do other manly things. Such as in said example. However if used for laziness, or to do non-manly things; then manliness is lost, and a strike is placed against ones man card.

 My first saw. Bought it for property  maintenance before I considered cutting for firewood. It does pretty good for a budget saw. We have a Husqvarna 359 that we rent out at work. I get to bring it home when needing a more powerful saw. :thumbup:

I personally don't like Sthil that much. The good saws are good but the homeowner lines that you find in like a Farm&Home feel like nothing but cheap plastic. Even the ones that were 300-400 didn't feel like they had the quality of the Jonsered in Tractor Supply that were comparable in price.

I'm really not looking right now. We just walked into Tractor Supply and I was drawn to them. It would be nice to have something more robust than what I currently have, but it's not a need right now. I didn't know a thing about them, and knew this was the place to ask. Not to start an argument, just trying to learn and understand;but if they are the pro saw, why are they slightly cheaper than Husqvarna?

Just saw that MattyNH has a few of them. Hopefully he will chime in.

Has anyone ever used one of these? I saw them in Tractor Supply today. They looked really nice and felt really good in my hands. Much better than the similar priced Sthils over at Farm & Home, which felt "plasticy" even to a Poulan Pro owner. Apparently they are a branch of Husqvarna, but are priced similar, so I don't understand the marketing of them. That's besides the point. Just wanted to get some opinions on them.

Not sure how similar they are, but I had to pull the oiler tube out to the edge where the cap goes and feed some tie wire up through the oiler hole to get my little Poulan Pro going yesterday.

All of the above. I was encouraged because the top ashes were dry each time I took a look at it, but when I started shoveling it was nothing but wet mud. There was no standing water at first, but after about 18 hrs, that is what I found. Oh, well. I think I'm going to drain it completely, and have some fun tinkering with ideas before scrapping it. I'm thinking maybe getting a blower for it and trying the whole lava rock thing.

No nothing like that. We had to drain the boiler a bit to get it to where the skid steer would lift it. The bottom valve didn't close when we went to cut the line, and I got antifreeze water all over my hands. So I stuck my hands in the snow and when I shook them off, the combination of my fingers shrinking in the cold and being slightly slick from the antifreeze, the ring flew off my hand into the snow. We went back with a metal detector, but didn't have any luck. My wife has since bought me a cheap ring to get by till we can replace the missing one.

Well I lost my wedding ring in the process of getting it, but no money, just time invested.

Well crap. Cleaned out the ash and whatever else was left in it last night. Aaannddd this is what I found today when i went out to it today. Looks like Im draining it and shipping it to the scrap yard.

I've tried to make that argument for the past two elections. I get told that's wasting the votes. I tell them it's not a waste if everyone who felt it was the lessee of two evils, votes for the third party.
