No, cake for me, thanks, although it looks delicious
You are so right about this being the longest week in history! Today is already booked solid. Last night was the last chance of frost in the area according to the almanac so that means the garden is going in this morning. I'm also doing some flowerbeds and general outside clean up. Then there is the requisite midday youth soccer game. The weather should be beautiful. This afternoon I'm putting the finishing touches on my spring stove maintenance with a light coat of paint. I’m excited to say the least. Then I can look at getting set up for next year.
Hey Freddy, do you or the guys hanging around for coffee have any ideas on how to construct a filter of some kind to put over the blower fan exit vents on my Harmon Mark II. What happens is that the fan on the back of the stove blows over a baffle inside the stove, picking up the heated air and distributing it out the front of the stove via two unfiltered vents on the upper front. It just occurred to me that since this baffle or horizontal sheet of metal builds up a lot of flyash, the heated air is picking up flyash as it passes over the baffle and sends it out to my living space with the heat. Can you think of anything I can do to filter the air at this point? Obviously, I don’t want to block the heat but if there was something I could do…. Maybe I just have to live with the extra dusting but if anyone can think of something to try I’d appreciate hearing it. Would something like the metal filters in my kitchen stove exhaust fan, attached on the outside of the stove with magnets work? I could attach the magnets with furnace glue? That way the filters would be accessible so I could clean them often. Any thoughts? Thanks for your thoughts!
Well, time to tackle the to do list. Have a great weekend! Enjoy your coffee. Lisa
