The ability to direct a stream of heat without a fan is nice to keep a project area warm while still slowly warming the entire shop. The cheapest I’ve found it was at Costco for $67. It uses less energy than your standard space heaters as well.”
This week I’m all about shop heaters. It’s been cold as hell in the shop while we’ve been out there putting together some upcoming projects and testing tools.
While this looks like a great little heater, the picture — straight from Costco.com, linked below — cracks me up. If you check out the site and look at the two “larger” pictures available, you’ll not that this is simply a Photoshopped version of the “inside” picture. The table saw’s actually sitting on carpet and they dropped in a tool chest to make it feel more, you know, tool-ish.
