i hope to show you some ornamental pear tree. it dont have pears, that works for me.i dont like pears all that much. the wind, or ice can cause those to break. when they burn, they burn hot. 6 or less months. the wood is cured. less in the winter. wood burns like walnut. my favorite wood not to burn, walnut. the wood of these pear trees, make good coals. not only that, they dont shoot off sparks, when using an insert. that comes in handy if ya want to sleep, but want to leave the screen open, so ya get more heat inside the house.

thats a ornamental pear tree, that dont grow pears. it grows good wood, an good heat.

i was going on so, about firewood, an had to backspace some. least 3 lines.
i'll finish after i get some sleep, an less JB maple.

three of the woods, i like to burn grow kinda fast. water maple, wild cheery, ornamental pear,. if you got the ground, these trees should keep you warm, and maybe supplied. depends on how much, ya got to heat, of course, or, even the structure, you heat.
them modular homes, [aka. trailers] have more infiltration then you would expect. course the moms home is 18 yrs. old.. things could have improved. it is possible.. 6" walls, yet you can feel the cold air blowing in. windows, doors, siding, all leak cold air. i'm sure there are other leaky places. i dont mean to harp on modular homes, but you should be aware. they are not cracked up to be what you think they are. [infiltration humor]. no matter how thick the wall is, if wind gets in, the wall dont matter.
behave yourselves

Had this laying in the back of my jeep... Steve happen to see this.... Asked...... How many light housings did i bust unloading wood, told him both right hand and left, i told him $10 for each housing guard, he said he couldnt build them for that price, so i hooked him up...

This should effectively stop light housing damage.

Anyways.... It's Rainey all day here, might have the day off work, so i can get caught up on so over due mods

once i get it freed up, it fires up, and goes back to work. i like it, so far. it is a limb saw, but some of these limbs are over 6", an considering my sciatica, [pinched spinal nerve, lower back], this is a saw i needed.
i think it cuts as good as the echo cs310 i got, maybe better. the echo is not running at the moment, and i cant figure out why. i wont pay a dealer to fix it, because i should be able to fix it. it would cost more to take it to a dealer, than the saw is worth. i could always hear metal while that saw was cutting. i think it was as the bar was not getting enough oil. i was wearing my ear plugs, an could still hear the sound.
i will let ya know how the red max does in a few months or years depending. so far i think im glad i bought it.
i have cut branches using only one arm, despite what the book says
i quoted me,, to refresh your memory. i got none to refresh.
i adjusted the carb, put a 16" bar an chain on it.the more i use it, the more i like it. its running a bit rich. i can smell it, an taste it. i need to lean it out a bit. dont that mean backing out the low speed adjustment. tonight i'm too tired to think, an i forgot where i put the manual. it cuts just fine for a 7 pounder, plus i got the 99 husquvarna 55 model, if i need it.
thought i'd give ya an update. just ed

High was 15F today, and it's already down to 9F, and my freestanding stove had kept the house (1900 sq ft rambler l) at 70F average all day, furnace hasn't run with being set at 67. And living room (where the stove sets) is toasty warm. Can't beat it.

Yep here it is: https://www.hondaatvforums.net/forum...ml#post1252542

It's not a top of the line stove for sure, in terms of build quality (US Stove Company, Vogelzang brand), got it at Menards, but boy does it pump out the heat with the best of them, efficient too. Already had an issue with the air intake plate, figured out the spacers on one of the screws was too short, so I got that fixed up better than new with a proper length spacer.

i best not touch this post, least i get into trouble, humor wise..
i will say, staying in the 5th wheel, i was comfortable at 64F. i had blocked all infiltration. when i go over to me moms, the temp. has to be 76F, if not 2 more degrees. despite the walls of modular homes, supposed to be 6" thick, i think they lie, and the insulation is not all there. supposedly the amish build these, but who ever did the duct work, put the trash down in it, as to cutting the hole in the floor, for hvac vent, an using it for garbage, stuffing the vents with it..
the worst thing was, the furnace gas valve, was set for natural gas, when the furnace was running on propane. natural gas runs at 3lbs per square inch, propane, 10-12lbs per square inch. me mom wouldnt let me check it out, for years. i was working HVAC. that in of it self is a different story, so i wont bore ya with it.
cold air breezes in er house. ya can always tell when the wind is blowing outside, through the windows, even some electrical sockets..
well, i quit posting, on this, because i keep getting interrupted. ya get the drift anyway.

i have to ask about page 3, and remind, me about those heat warming girls.
i like iron stoves, or heat burners. when ya baffle them, they put out even more heat.

Exclamation

Update..... (Not good) went for two full loads of wood , one of standing green hackberry, along Andy's drive , he wants them gone, otherwise, i don't fell healthy standing trees!
Anyways.... Got that one , with no issue, came back unloaded, fired up the 35 ton and split a few for the next few days, then i loaded up everything in the jeep, headed over to my sisters, for more downed Cotten wood logs , i ended up hitting a rock << this why i hardly ever saw from top to bottom, i saw from the side, then role the log to keep my chain and bar out of the @&$)(;:?!! soil! ... So.... I ended up buggering my Carlton full skip chain. ...... I'm in need of another 3/8 18 inch full skip .... Im open for opinions of what brand full skip chain.....you wood chuckers like ??? I'm thinking Oregon ---- just noting.... I had absuluty NO issues with the Carlton.... Held up real good till she met rock.....
