    Shop gloat

    Found this little guy looking for a new home this week on craigs list. Looks like we've got heat for the shop now.





    Had a couple of bricks break on the ride home, but already located some replacements. Just need to pickup some flue pipe and get it installed.

    Close to the model I have. Be prepared for massive amounts of heat. Took me a while to learn to operate the damper. Once you get it figured out, oh boy.

    What is that a wood burner ?
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Whoo-hho. It'll be a hot time, in the old shop, tonight.

    My dad had a similar one in his shop years ago. He had a ceiling fan hung above it to help circulate the heat off of it. It was a 22 X 40 shop and that thing could cook you out of it if it wasn't kept under control.

    Yup, a wood "circulator" is what I think they are called.

    Oh I've got a week or two before it gets fired up. need to fix the bricks, install some metal on the ceiling and side wall(s), then the flue/chimney.

    I like wood heat but in my shop might send me home early with a boom

    Yeah, I plan to put a separate finish room in one area of the shop with an alternative heating source and good ventilation. That or just build all winter and finish stuff in the summer.

    Darren that looks like it will get er done. In terms of finishing in the winter, you can always use water based finishes.

    in the finish room get a electric oil filled heater darren save and works well.. as for the stock piling of projects to finish in the spring or summer ,,,that doesnt sound like a good idea to me to easy to get damaged and the room factor will enter in as well
