    Identification of this one would put Craig in the Hall of Fame. Estate sale.

    I figure a good fixer upper for Elk or Corie.

    Really, inserts should not be used in outdoor fireplaces. Especially ones using blowers

    Pretty Good, Webwidow.......

    Sunbeam Benefire - actually one of the nicest looking inserts made in 1979, when most were quite ugly. It was for the occassional fire - my dada had one in a fireplace next to the dining room table and we would light it up before we had company for a sit-down dinner.

    Had large glass, tempered, not ceramic - and had stamped sheet metal doors with some air wash which kept the glass at a relatively low temp. Two muffin fan provided the air stream. The top of the unit inside had 5 three inch holes going through the convection chamber vertically (like boiler tubes) to give more heat exchange.

    Was UP approved and was slip-in - no other possible way to install it.

    No firebrick, just some steel fire dogs which kept the fire raised and back away from the glass.

    Bro, do I win or not?

    Oh, this was sold under the Bennett Ireland name...owned by Sunbeam.

    And the award goes to da Webmaster, who has spent entirely too much of his life in the presence of odd heating devices.

    You know, usually you can't buy stuff that good, you have to make it.
