    The Trade show for the fireplace/stove industry is in Reno this year. I will post the pics in this thread. Any discussion should be done in the regular forums.

    In this post, Webwidow on the Heavenly Gondola, Some views from way up there, and the gondola machinery for you fabricators.

    Outdoor Burn area - notice - about 500 stoves burning and blue sky - no smoke. I'll take some better ones later which show more chimneys.....you guys might want to plant these at the anti-hearth forum.

    3 Pics

    One a stainless pool heater - wood burning, which is EPA approved......as much as 250,000 BTU, it would also heat up a hot tub in a hurry!

    The second is a corn/biomass furnace which can be rolled from place to place! Great for the shop, etc - or even for working outdoors and having a source of warmth.

    The other is prototype pellet stove put together by an inventor who had previously bought a pellet stove - and then threw it out of the house due to dust, etc.

    This unit has no convection fans, so no noise! It also has a unique burning system. There is a combustion fan, but it is located on the chimney stack outside (as I said, this is a prototype!).
