    I have not checked that. The electrician that installed it quoted it as a 240, so hopefully it is. He passed away two years ago so I will be out of luck if it is only a 120 panel. I will check when I...

    240v question

    When I check the voltage in the panel on a double pole breaker, I get 120 on each pole (hot on one side of the breaker to the neutral). When I check the voltage at the receptacle I only get 120...

    I checked that before loading. There were two pieces with little holes like the Beatles leave but there was no dust like I have seen before. I set those two pieces outside to check more closely later.

    How long do you sticker your wood?

    I picked up some wood yesterday that has been in storage for 12 years. I will be using it over the next six months to a year. Do I need to sticker it or can I just stack it high and tight?

    What kind of wood is this?

    It is very dense. Much heavier than walnut or oak. Half is wiped with mineral spirits to try to show the graind vs dry.
