    I understand exactly where your coming from, I installed a container type dryer 4yrs ago when I reached a certain production point but that was linked to RHi, which makes a difference If your minds made up about the kiln route then there's plenty members on here who will give you advice

  14. Info Card For Customers To Stop Issues

    I had an issue with one of my customers a few years ago, were he complained of logs going mouldy in the nets, After a few questions to try to get to the bottom of it, it turned out he had started to store them in a damp redundant farm shop which was near enough air tight with no form of heating or ventilation, Asked him to store the logs outside in one of the sheds, never been a problem since

    Just an observation, but the log merchant who brings unseasoned or wet firewood is unlikely to have an info card
