    Anytime I've been in a room with a Kerosun burning I knew it. Usually left with a headache.

    Ah...I thought you were being sarcastic earlier. It didn't sound like you were all on-board with the idea of spending a decent amount of cash for something rarely used.

    No sarcasm here.

    It'd only be like $200 which is cheap compared to $2000+ for the Jotul. Plus on the used market they are really cheap. However, for the near future I'll probably just borrow my dad's to see how it works out.

    As far as leaving with a headache...I grew up with kerosene heaters in various relatives' homes. Never remember an issue.

    Thanks

    I've got 2 602's down here that I'm thinking of getting rid of before the season (actually, one's a knockoff)...

    Dumb question... what if you just tell them you ARE putting in a gas furnace? Plans change along the way...

    You don't want LP. I have it, and it's crazy expensive. We only use it for occasionally heating the garage and in the outdoor fireplace, at this point. I think it's over $4.00/lb. around here. Plus, you need to buy or rent the tank, pay to install lines and regulator, etc., etc.

    Kerosene, lp, ng, oil... All things i can't get in my back yard or for free. Sure a smallish stove seems expensive of the bat. But then you never really need to pay again.

    And there's loads of used stoves around. Just need to do a bit of homework on brands and start searching.

    And if you find a 207cl...I'd buy it from you...

    Good luck.

    I see what you're saying and yes, the stoves are really cheap used. However, the piping is what is so expensive. Kind of like paying a buck for a soda and twenty-five for the straw...

    Now for the upstairs/house I don't care and the thing is amazing, but for something I'll rarely use, I'm not going to blow that much at this point.

    In time I will be putting one in and it'll be done right. But for right now I'll use the kerosene heater to get the job done.

    Thanks

    Sounds like your mind is made up. Shall we close this thread?

    I am actually still curious about the "knockoff". But why close it? Did I or someone else do something wrong?

    One knockoff to the Jotul 602 is a Upland Model 17. Nice little stove - I'd go as far as to say it's cute. I can't believe I just said 'cute' but it does have a nice look to it. I just got done sanding and painting mine even though its not connected. Only thing I wish it had was a door with a view like some of the optional features of the later Jotul 602's.
    If I don't use it someday - I may just place in the living room or hallway as a end stand of sorts - just for the look and feel.
    Edit - no longer made but sometimes found in the used market / CL

    Neat little stove that I had never heard of. I'm still waiting for someone to do a 602 knockoff in plate steel and with a slightly larger box. Say 1.5 cube instead of the ~1 cube of the 602.

    "But for right now I'll use the kerosene heater to get the job done." No problem, it sounded like this is a done deal.

    There are lots of posts on Scandia knockoffs in the Classic stove section.

    Oh ok. I didn't know about such a section.

    I do like the idea of smaller stoves though. Much easier to move around. Only thing I'm noticing is, aside from the 602, they don't really have window fronts. Any idea why? Does it have to do with physics or price maybe?

    Thanks

    It's a pretty small door so the glass area is small. The VC Aspen has glass too.

    Sorry, for some reason didn't get updated on this thread. The knock-off is called a Glo-Fire. I know nothing about it, but I thought it was a 602 until I got it home and took a good look at it. Pretty much identical. Quick search looks like a Glo-Fire 301. Maybe MSRP was 50% of a 602?

    Ugh, I can't be around kero heaters at all. We have two oldies (the deco Perfection ones) as decor here but I'd never light them in the house. We had to get rid of the torpedo heater for the garage because I couldn't be in there when it was running. I can't even burn too many oil lamps though. I think some people are more sensitive to it than others.
