In retrospect, we could have fixed it with a larger piece of the same glass which happened to be there as well. Friday morning we did before firing up. The right bench which was warmer before now reached the almost exact same temperature as the other one. So, this could probably used as another way to tune the benches, after the build is being done.

Alkire, for one, is looking at ways to make the devices more-affordable. There’s also the added weight that needs to be supported – and the cost. Then, of course, there’s soapstone, a traditional material for these units. Another option is to purchase a kit. Is it worth the effort to take on a job building a masonry heater?

If no agreement is reached, the industry (viewed by many from the ìoutsideî world as a bunch of squabbling kids) will not make it out of the sandbox and into the family room.
