Hi Gail, Wow, and thanks. This is one of the best and most usefull
suggestions I've gotten in years. How to keep the bench
One thing I do with my charcoal blocks, since I use them for melting
large quantities of metal, is to wrap them with binding wire, and it
wont keep them from splitting, but it will keep them together when
they do split for longer use.
Love and God Bless
