  1. To save you going looking David F .... Dale Russell
  2. Just letting you know the intensity of the bushfires down here in Australia . This what's left of a BMW after it's been through a fire . The snaking rivers that have run away from it are what's left of the engine block . Dale Russell
  3. You know it's hot when the drop of sweat from your nose evaporates before it hit's the ground
  4. Marc , stay safe mate , first sign of that fire coming to you i'd be heading for the river . Like you I also live in a bushfire prone area , if a fire breaks out here this summer it'll make Black Saturday look like a single candle on a cake , 5 times this last year they told us here they where going to be doing fuel reductions , 4 time it was cancelled due to it was " raining " ( never heard why the 5th wasn't done ) In recent years I intended on staying , but with an ailing disabled wife I've had to make the hard choice of " leaving " at first sign of fire . Maybe one day the people in-charge will heed the advice of the local native Australians & do the " fuel reductions & do it often " like they did before the white man came to " their " country . Dale Russell
  5. Just talked to Moony , fires to the east and west of him about 2 KMS from his property , packed and ready to leave if he has to . Moving equipment away from the w/shop as I was talking to him . Wil call him tomorrow to see how he went . Dale Russell

  9. Found this , am blown away what these to blokes can do with a Cello ( followed the rabbit hole of YouTube on them as well ) WOW is all I can say .
  10. Ohio , not used one myself , am looking into these types of units myself for producing wood " chunks " for charcoal production myself ( Using a " Hookway " style retort but with waste cooking oil burner as a supply for my heat source ) . There is a poster on YouTube " Made in Poland " who has 2 vids on a " Branch Logger " build he made ( 1 with build plans ) . Sorry not much more of a help , but is a starting point for you anyway .
