Makes a huge difference in both comfort and motivation Dave. Mine is a constant 68 degrees now and I love it.

Great,  I'll go and put the kettle on to make us a cup of tea.

Bet that big Atlantic Ocean will slow you down a bit.

Good deal Dave, do you have any snow on the ground yet?
Hoping that you can get some shop time in this winter.

I fired mine up today.  It's radiant heat in the floor so thermostat is set for 59F.  It feels warmer than that but not enough to sweat.

Had mine on for a couple of weeks now. Saying that I run a de-humidifier all the time, it feels so much warmer when it's not damp plus it keeps the rust away.

Thermocouple is too close to the burner I think...I moved it down, but the threaded end has been worn out from changing it a dozen times over the years....

I think the threaded well is replaceable, ....but its cold and it's running right now so I'll leave it be
