    nice upgrade, I keep all the moving metal parts to my splitter's splitting ops well lubed. no rust or dry slides, steel, I beam on my splitter. even the wedge and the wood's split location, too. my... what a dif it can make. what was not splitting on the pass, splits with ease. I use 140 gear, anti-seize, even 40HD engine oil, new... depends on what it needs where n when...

    no 8'ft'rs for me yesterday! lol. I have tackled some here in town. out at farm or at neighbor's they can show up... oak. but was too cold out to go work in yard in shorts, and too warm to stay inside, but just perfect to go... scrounge some firewood. I went and got some, well I guess there were a couple of 8'r's... maybe 10'-12'. just, lol... not the diameter some of you guys r used to. but oak is oak. and none of it needed splitting. nor seasoning. fireplace ready! mostly use this stuff for my outdoor fireplace. runs spring, summer, fall and... winter, too.

    got about 1/12th of a cord, this is headed to my woodpile by outdoor fireplace. also got couple cu ft of 3/4" to 1" oak for tween the kindling and the sitx... so I cut this off my logging rig, into wheelbarrow on side of my road. then came out and cleaned up all the sawdust, which... lol :laughing: is prob what some of you just might think my wheelbarrow is full of. lol... trust me, it's not. :)

    about 1/13th cord of oak as shown...couple hours work, fire up to clean up

    ps: I used full screen to make them look like high mountain logged logs... ;) stuff like this is constant in my neighborhood. if I have to go too far, I usually pass. I don't have to look too far... bought 1/2 cord 40 yrs ago, and haven't bought any since... ;)

    As of early this week yes. For now anyway. Just got the new Lamppa Kuuma furnace installed. Our old furnace had an electric backup unit installed in the plenum, which I may switch over to the new furnace at some point. The old one would only burn for 3 hours max, so the electric was a necessity. This one has no problem running for 12 hours, so I don't think the electric will ever get used. It's be nice to have it there just in case though.

    How’s the kuuma running now you had a few weeks to dial it in. Like I’ve said before. I’ll be getting one next year. Was there much of a learning curve to get optimal performance?

    Actually I only brought it home on the 21st and I'm far from an expert on the electrical and HVAC side of things, so I'm still getting everything buttoned up. It's been running non-stop since last Friday, so I am just starting to get the hang of it. For now there's a couple things I'm hoping to improve about my installation, so I'm mostly reserving judgement until I get it all the way set up. I will say though that the burn times are very impressive. I load it up at 10:00 at night and still have plenty of coals at 8:00 in the morning. The house has generally dropped to 68 by then, but our house is poorly insulated and has single pane windows.

    Finally getting after this pile of oak, hickory, beech, sugar maple and a little bit of ironwood. Started cutting the weekend before Christmas. Everything in the pictures was logs when we started.

    Plan is to get it all cut and then start splitting. Because its warm and nothing is frozen, going to have to stack were it's at.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
