    My bro used to work for Apple, all mac in the house, still have a 'lay the phone down in the modem' modem somewhere here, if I recall it was 1200 baud and I still have one of the first macs that had 256K of mem. Oh, and a dot matrix mac printer that was signed by the whole mac team on the inner side of the case, I'll have to ebay that one of these days now that my bro has moved to Taiwan. I'm running OX10+ whatever, not sure if it is even released thanks to bro, and then XP, and 'linus', all on the same box. Back on topic, I took some new better lit bathroom photos of the screen, complete with an upright tube of toothpaste for reference for those of you that were asking. The screens even make my hard worked 5 year old quad look nice, our primary heat source for that time. Yes, I cleaned tonight, photo is a couple weeks back, when I cleaned it the glass and gasket fell out of the door, a little high temp silicone and she's cranking again right now as I type. Low is 34 tonight, that unit is a work horse and still kicking.

    Nice.

    You DO have a knack for taking pics in interesting places in your house.....first, the pic in the dark kitchen w/ the lights out so you don't wake the kids (sleeping by the refrigerator in case they get hungry), and now on a bathroom sink.... :lol:

    BTW, do I get a Sponge Bob figurine like the one in the pic w/ my screen? :cheese: When I get the logs w/ flame screen (that i suggested), do I get the matching Patrick figurine to complete my "Sponge Bob Series"? ;-P

    So after over a year or more, the final product is due to hit the market very shortly. It is a decorative fire screen designed to be used in pellet stoves to break up the 'blow torch' effect of the flame when you want things a little less bright and want something much more durable and easy to clean. I wanted to announce this here first and get some feedback, I've been here a fairly long time and respect the input of all here and Craig too. Thoughts? Thanks. By the way, the idea is tm'd and pp, don't even think about it! Thanks again, Bob.

    Give me a week or two, you guys have the first preview because I'm dedicated to this site. Yes, we can do different images, but I want feedback on what images you want before we do another run. Deer? Moose? Ducks? Kids? Sports? Price placement will be in the For Sale forum shortly, less than ceramic logs would cost you and lasts longer they you'll be around and a heck of a lot easier to clean and take care of. These are made in the USofA and keeping people in work. I like the Sun Burst darn it, must be because the sun is going away up here in MN again. Thanks again for the input, best site on the whole web for this stuff, thanks Craig.

    LOL....no, that will just make me think of a nice juicy duck, or moose, or venison roasting inside the stove..... :lol:

    I was thinking maybe a set of crossed logs and flames coming out of the top of them.

    That's a Custom. Can you send me a jpeg or gif or two? Or three? Or six? May cost you, or maybe I'll do it no cost depending on the images. LOL!

    Oh wait, you said crossed logs, not crossed legs! Good luck cleaning both, this unit just takes soap and water for clean up, and doesn't break up every time you over heat it and drop it if you get what I mean.....

    Hotz, I was thinking something like this. May have to be re-drawn so the individual flame can be (laser?) cut. I thought it would be cool to have the "burning logs" design with the fire flickering behind it.

    Yep, laser. This would work. Where is the image from? Copyrighted at all? Can you PM the file? OK, who votes the second run be Log's With Flame?

    Hotz,

    I think Pook is talking about the door on your stove??

    Logs with flamezzzz! Or maybe a pellet head design??

    Wish I could use one, But my stove would require a custom made. It doesn't have a flat piece to site on. O'well.
