Heat In The Mancave

    I moved a pellet stove out of the basement up a flight of stairs and into the mancave yesterday.
    It weighs 250 pounds. It was a workout getting it up the stairs.
    I had a pellet stove in the mancave for several years. We did not use the one in the house so I sold the stove in the mancave and moved the newer stove to the mancave.
    Winter is coming and I have a couple winter projects that need attended to.

    A mancave - what a luxury.
    And even more so with heating.

    The Temperature here can drop to -30 C in the winter months.
    Heat is not a luxury.

    I am in bed today and asked for the heating to go on and was given an extra blanket. Evidently the central heating only functions after Oct 1 :eek:

    That seems quite hazardous. A stair walker trolley would be safer than a two wheel sack trolley. Even with that you would need two people.

    To me having a mancave is the great luxury, and of course like any other room it may need heating during cold weather.
    My wife and I have a vey small cottage with no loft and a very small garden on a slope, so no chance of a shed either.

    It was cold here last night as well. I awoke about 2am feeling cold. I just threw the winter duvet over the lower part of the bed. It is now properly replacing the summer duvet and I am considering long PJs instead of PJ shorts.

    Unless my eyes deceive me that is an impressive looking bandsaw.

    Its a 16" Walker Turner bandsaw its made from cast iron, it was made in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
    I found it in the local buy and sell for a very good price. It came with a box of spare blades about 100 of them.

    How on earth did you move 113 kg up stairs, surely not on your own?

    Mmmm! that's a nice dinky little lathe you've got there, and maybe also a milling machine? - Brings back fond memories as I used to operate a Ward with a 12" (capacity) chuck and also a lapping machine.
