That poor, poor puppy, deprived of normal food, resorts to eating any thing that resembles food, like a pair of leather gloves..
As for tools.. I have several five gallon pails that I use for transporting coal from the storage building to the boiler's hopper.
I have an infrared no-touch thermometer for checking temperatures.
I have several full size shovels for filling buckets.
I have four large 2 bushel [I think] ash tubs. they are about ? 22"x22"x 12" ? not sure, I will try to measure one the next time i'm out.
The most important 'tool' is my bare or stocking feet.. on a slate floor, in the middle of winter, in the frigid midwest..
I take my shoes off to warm up my feet in my home. there is nothing to compare.
Of course, if I had a nice handfed stove inside the house, I'd probably have my feet propped up near the stove to soak up some radiant heat..
