Warming up these cold days

18 below zero today first thought how to warm up my shop. Been thowing all kinds of wood in the barrel stove got the temp. up to low 60's. Started throwing in plastic and pieces of OSB had the shop up to 80 degrees.Now I know some of you bleeding heart tree huggers wouldn't approve but it's only a couple of days a year.

If a tree hugger bjects, open the furnace door wide, Grab him/her in one hand a piece of osb in the other and have them pick a hand.

or stick their heads in the door the glues buring off that osb will give them a high .

My mechanic cousin burns his used car oil (2 or 3 barrels/season)- he made a simple burner pot from well casing, it's bottomless so he sets it on firebrick and drips the oil onto steel lathe shavings, then has a small blower foofing the fire. first off, he's 200 miles from the reclaimer so his alternative would be to collect it in a barrel, then the truck comes to get it (burning diesel both ways) then he'd have to pay retail, buy and burn fuel oil anyway. this way he not only saves lotsa pollution, the pine trees thank him for the co2. again the best solution is use what you have. :)
