    Log trucks

    At $10/hr you might be better off just working at a gas station or something like that. That is just barely above minimum wage for some pretty hard work without a regular paycheck.

    I'm still debating on if I want to try it. might just place an order and see how she does. you could tie a string to the counter weight and give it a few good tugs every now and then to keep it clean.

    OWB Owners, what's your set point?

    I was considering a similar setup, but also adding an ambient air temp setting to the mix. What model Ranco did you use?
