Hey Colin

Acquisition of firewood is all about being an accomplished scrounger. People lopping trees, windfalls of dead trees on country roads, clearing for road widening, building sites (provided the timber has not been CCA treated and a keen pair of eyes all help with the effort. I am a bit lucky in that I live rural and there has been plenty of old seasoned timber within easy striking distance of home.

A ute and a chainsaw help the effort.

Happiness is a full woodshed.

Why is Santa always smiling?
Because he knows where all the naughty girls live.

Put some plastic over dome. Fired up curing device, and have it now running around
150c mid way up the dome. Will keep it running until midnight.

started around 5.30pm

Its 10pm oven walls at 150c external shiralite temp at 45c condensation forming on Plastic. Will run for 2 more hours fire up in the morning while I wrap in blanket.

Bottom of oven wall around 100c floor also 100c, top of dome 250c half way up around 170c back of hebel 170c front of hebel 58c.

Now here's a question I have 2 boxes of 7m x 60cm ceramic blanket, Difference is it is in 10cm widths i.e. 6 widths per box making the 60cm. How would you place that on the dome I will get 4 layers? All suggestions welcome

Have run the curing device all day since 7am. Initially 1st and 2nd ring, then after 4 hours added 3rd ring. I layed the insulation blanket during this.

well I got the insulating blanket on the dome. BEen firing it all day 3 rings, temp around 330c top of dome wals not far below 180c and owe r down the dome.

the thermocouple positions ar great. reading 180c 10mm from the internal dome surface and about 120c 10mm into the fire brick.

so far so good. The blanket at the top is actually feeling a little wet.
