Heat-Scapades & Thanks

First off, I apologize to anyone trying to get in touch over the past couple days or wondering if product has shipped to them, yet. On Wednesday I traveled all the way up to St. Albans to grab a beautiful, lightly-used, cast-iron Harman pellet stove for the shop. That sucked the wind out of that day and today a snowstorm seems to have engulfed the region (though it was mostly cold and fluffy up here).

Tomorrow I'm hoping to have the stove installed by evening in the shop and everything back to normal (and warm) by Saturday. Instruments purchased over the past few days will also finally get on the road. I admit to having to drop everything and run off to grab the iron beast when it presented itself! I can't wait to fire it up.

I also wanted to say a belated thank-you(!) to everyone who's pitched-in and donated here and there in regards to the blog. I entirely appreciate it as it helps to keep the lights on, so to speak. Not only do they help offset the cost of things like a fancy SoundCloud account, domain fees, and the like -- but I also keep a log of them and try to reinvest them in ways to bring you all more weird, strange, and interesting information. So -- thanks!

As always, if any of you have ideas about what you'd like to see (or see more of), give me a heads-up.

Hey Jake,

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your site. You've got tons of useful info tucked away in here. I especially like the workbench/in progress posts, they've helped with my own repairs and I always like seeing the sweat and cursing that goes into these beautiful instruments! Would love to see more behind the scenes!

Thank you for all the work you put in here.

Thanks, Gabriel! I've been trying to do more workshop posts as I go along, so I'm pleased they're useful. :)
