  1. Yes part of the reason we have a wood burner . As the chimney draws. Fresh air from outside enters from all the cracks and vents etc . Better than sitting in stale air from central heating.
  2. We can supply kindling but it now needs putting in a kiln when it’s delivered . We are about a month behind with orders . There is no dry timber about I think everything is being chipped
  3. One idea would be season in Ibc containers then use a forklift with rotator to tip into the bulk bags
  4. It’s crazy we can buy ash cheaper than softwood and nearly half the price
  5. Maple ,sycamore and hazel were a few more I was eyeing up 🤩
  6. I am going to give it a go . I have 30 tonnes of ash on order and we know ash splits nicely . We have pop so might do a mix
  7. We thought about using ash but as you say it’s heavy also I suspect it may be too slow burning for kindling . With the demand for bio mass and the price of kindling so low it’s almost impossible to produce it unless you get the wood free or £25 a tonne max
  8. My meters fantastic can’t even get a reading off our kiln dried logs . O% moisture selling like hot cakes . I dare not buy a new meter in case it’s wrong 🤣😂😂
  9. With half the country sat on their ass claiming dole or furlough last thing on the governments mind is to stop people working even if their logs are slightly damp.
  10. What’s the best softwood for turning into kindling and why ?
  11. What’s nasty about the saw dust I don’t like the splinters from larch
  12. Do you have one in Bournemouth we can view
  13. Cord under cord under 6 inch can go straight through without splitting but cord over this will need splitting
  14. Up to 16 inch anything bigger I will split first
  15. I need to hire a wood processor twice a year to process timber for kindling . All straight cord wood currently have 25 tonnes of ash to process. Machine can come with operator . Machine must lend it self to cutting 6 inch logs all day. Need 25 tonnes of Douglas fir cut twice a year or more if busy. location Andover Hampshire fresh coffee supplied
