Gondwana Forest Products . . . if you want to get RIPPED OFF and wait 4+ months for your shipments, call Shane Dohnt of Gondwana Forest Products . . . Naturally, being the dishonest bottom feeder he is, Shane will deny so, but just ask me for the pictures of the CRATE full of unsellable red and brown mallee he shipped (against my VERY SPECIFIC direction) . . . and the flat out visibly rotten/unusable burl (that I have not listed/will not list for sale). It takes a TREMENDOUS amount for me to negatively (and publicly) endorse someone. Shane deserves it. Dohnt Buy From Shane (Pun intended) . . . I'll provide details upon request if you're seriously considering buying from him. Is that really the best you can do Shane? Block my email, threaten legal action by your Liar for Hire, and try to get other suppliers to cut me off and merchants to operate against me? Guess you're not laughing too much these days, huh DA? I told you before Shane, this wouldn't be a fair fight if I tied half my brain behind my back. Oh, forgot, let me know if you need some mallees Sheila.
SSHC Enerjoy radiant heat panels . . . check these out if you want to work in comfort in the dead of winter no matter where you live. The 2' x 8' x 1 inch thick panels weigh about 5 lbs, mount directly to the overhead of your workshop, run off 220V (or 110), have an available programmable thermostat (I have one, it's great quality, but I keep the temperature constant), and most importantly, are SAFE and INEXPENSIVE to operate. I left mine on at a constant temperature of 78 degrees one weekend while it was in the low 20's outside . . . WOW! I had to turn it down to 72! I have 3 panels in my 16x20 workshop and usually leave the temperature at a constant setpoint . . . in the dead of winter, my electric bill increased about $35, not all of which was attributable to the panels. You'll never have to worry about starting a fire again either (you can actually put your hand on them while operating and leave it there for a bit) . . . need I say more? Richard Watkins is the man to speak to . . . COST? Roughly $100 for the programmable thermostat, $220/panel and $150+ for shipping . . . I paid roughly $1,035 total.
