I just love the inconsistant weather we have been stuck with lately.
Tuesday it is supposed wander into the high fifties.
with more friday snows!!
Well Now that I am done ranting about the weather for
now anyway as the storm from the mid west is supposed
to pay a us a visit by friday with snow and I still have to
put shear pins in the snow blower- Quick-Lay in some more supplies and
canned goods Freetown Fred!!!!!!
Have any of you had trouble with fried electrical components/boards/switches
on the coal guns?
Since NYSEG in its wisdom has removed all the meter mounted surge arrestors
we have depended on the Square D unit in the panel and we still get voltage
fluctuations that kick the battery back up around for my wifes lap top..
more points to ponder.
What ever I decide on is going to be plugged in to a separate panel with a surge arrestor,.
OR I think it should have one anyway so I can power the unit with my generator
if we lose power.
I am still working on the auger angle and whether I will do it independently or
purchase the auger system-wont hurt to simply fill a barrel with buckets or a
much smaller bin to fill the hopper.
Wet coal is another issue and I have to quickly decide if I will put up a bin with mafia blocks-
as it is much less work and I can always run a dehumidifier on an over night timer to
help dry the coal I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW, dont worry about it being wet.
