I was wondering if anyone has heard of this company, or used their products?

Neat but a little over priced IMHO...

That's why I wished I had thought of it.  If they are selling much of any.

I'll never buy one at anywhere close to that price, but I could make one. . . .  It's a cool idea for heating up a small area.  Just not sure how often I could justify using one.  As small as it is it would never work in the 20 x 16 wall tent.

They are made from my home stae of va, which is a plus.  They do seem high, but to support local might be worth it.

I live in a small farming community and understand the value of supporting locals, but to pay so much for what would be questionable as ever receiving that value back in its uses, I don't know.

If you want to support a local, find a fabrication shop that is a real local (from your own town) and show them the video's and have them make you one.  I'm betting they can do it for less (time and material, you supply the ammo can).

I'm thinking the opposite: too cheap, too small. A small cast iron wood stove is about $250, big enough to put wood in and durable enough to last.
