Who Made This Heater?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm having a rummage sale and wondering how to price it. This was one of the best heaters made at the time. I have two different heaters to sell but not going to give them away, they will be worth quite a bit more come November. I had this in an 8x10 poorly insulated house and it about cooked you out. As I remember these were pretty expensive.  Thanks in advance for any for any clues. There no tags or writings of any kind on it.

What it went for back in the day doesn't have much impact on current value.  I'd look at what a comparable heater would go for today.  Is it comparable in function and heat output to a Big Buddy heater or something else?  Find a comparable modern heater and use that as your basis for setting a sale price.

I agree No Fish. It's more curiosity than anything. I have it at $20 with no takers but mostly mom's looking today so far. I don't care if it sells now, it would sell in 1 day on Clist later in the year I bet.

I think those heaters were distributed by Strikemaster and I think it might have even been called a Lazer Heater.  I'm surprised at the lack of info on the web, they were quite popular not all that long ago.

 

I would think it would be well worth $20 If someone has the right application for it. The newer direct vent heaters take up less room.

Dave, not only more room but lots of people build 6 x 8's that aren't fancy so this would be great for them. I'm not dealing with stovepipe any more, I built a big wheelhouse. I couldn't even find one on the E-B-A-Y. Is it ok to say that word now? I haven't posted much since last winter and it could get zapped one time and go thru the next.

I still have one like that. Great heater!! I would cook on the top all the time. It made perfect omelets in the morning.

 

If you put it on the List I would ask $50 and if it dose not sell quick you can drop the price.

Thanks Jim, I know they are great heaters. like I said, come November I'll get $35-$40 with no problem. They last forever too. I always thought someone in Minn. made them. Absolutely no clues to the maker on the unit which tells me it wasn't a big company, they would definitely have a name somewhere on it.

Come to think of it I believe I still store mine in the box it came in. I will have to check in the rafters and see if I can see the name/brand.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
