That’s pretty innovative. I wish I could sell my shavings and sawdust!

It all gets used and there is NO waist! And you get something back to pay the electric bill! How cool is that!
I used to give away my planer shavings to a lady that owned horses. I was glad that someone could use them!

That’s a good idea! I can remeber when they first came out with those wax logs. I cut them up into golf ball size peices an used them to start the fire in our wood and coal burning furnace when we lived in New England.
