Who Made This Heater?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
