    Every year, over the last 5 or 6, when I have cranked up the old Vermont Castings Resolute, the HeatWave Stirling Engine Fan wakes up at about 400-500 F and starts its blowing rotation.

    In fact, it's doing it's thing now. It flat pushes the air around - 10 feet away, I am reading 8 degrees warmer than when the stove was off. Without the fan, it's about a 4 degree bump.

    I found a site that is still listing them... sure hope I get it. They took my PayPal payment, so fingers are crossed. If one works well, two should be better!

    Too bad I have to work tonight. It would be a fine dark and stormy night to huddle up with the dog near the woodstove!

    Thanks BeGreen - I had checked those websites and they were out of stock which is why I thought BMWLoco might have found something special... But they actually were back in stock today and I nabbed one!

    Thanks!

    Alas, no joy. I got a refund yesterday. One month after order. PayPal... thankfully. Still looking for a second fan...
