  1. Pretty much all timber when dry has the same energy per unit weight. Pop has some attributes which make it a decent enough firewood.
  2. BBC News - Video shows near miss between car and lorry at Tomich [ame] [/ame]
  3. They're good. I got the wifi one off Amazon for £35 [ame] [/ame]
  4. Sorry for the crappy out of focus image of the buds. The orangey colour is making think Alder. They were scavenged after being fly-tipped, so I've no images of the tree standing. The butt is about 18" in diameter. Edit: Images now fixed Whaddya think?

  6. An alternative view is that with CH oil being cheaper, folk will have more left over for luxuries like logs. This assumes that the log buyers are shopping for the effect rather than calorific heat output of the firewood - which obviously isn't the case if they are using them as their main source of heat / hw. IME folk who use wood to exclusively heat their homes, or who have systems which can use oil/logs/pellets/solar depending on season/cost, don't buy their firewood from the £100 a cube merchants. If I didn't source, process and season my own firewood, I'd have to either pay full retail price from Logs'n'Stuff or more likely, find one of the cash-in-hand boys he doesn't like
  7. I like that a lot. I've got multiple wood stores throughout the garden. A single large one like that would really tidy the place up! Time to get the tape measure out again
  8. It looks great and should do well at the premium end of the market. Dont be shy on the pricing.
  9. Why keep it in overnight? I don't like smouldering wood clogging up the flue and prefer to light it afresh every day.
  10. I know, it's a pity the supermarkets and fuel suppliers don't do the same too.
  11. Maybe the guy bought some overrun printed bags - or bags that logsanstuff rejected? Either way, its a LOOOONG way from Perth.
  12. Bingo! Dodgey wiring in the towbar socket was the culprit!
  13. Well I've had a look and the elecctrics are like an explosion in a spaghetti factory - its going to have to go in the the garage for them to look!
