Bought a rough baby bear for $100 last December for my new pole building. Just getting around to cleaning it up and installing so I can start using it. After a couple hours of wire wheel, flap disc and paint it starting to look half way descent.

How large of a pole building are you expecting to heat with a Baby Bear?

I assume that was a much less common brown bear originally?

I assumed it is a baby bear looking at pics online, did not know there was a brown bear model.

Thanks, yesterday took 3 try's but found a proper 1/2" bolt and nut.
Was only able to find zinc coated that didn't have a shoulder. one guy told me I could torch the zinc off, I seen on youtube that soaking in white vinegar for 2 days remove the zinc coating. It worked great.
