Does anybody know where i can get free (or paid-for) plans for optimal
firewood pieces? ;-) <snip>
Reminds of of the farmer, who cut 10 cords of wood a year, to last
thru the winter, all by hand. He could usually cut a cord a day.
His son figured that was too much work for him, so bought him a
chainsaw. The old man was sceptical, but the son told him he could
probably cut all his wood in less than 2 day with it. So the old man
agreed to try it out.
The old man told his son, the chainsaw just wasn't working right at
all, he was not happy. Took him all day to cut just a quarter cord of
wood, and he was totally exhausted from it. The son said that wasn't
right, and told h im to take in to the store where he bought it, and
have them check it out.
The old man got to the store, told them his problems. The repair
guy, said, "I'll check it out", and pulled the cord. The saw started up
with a loud roar, and the old man went about 3 feet straight up,
yelling, "What's that noise?".
Use your brain - it's the small things that count.
