    The day after I read this thread, I found a post in a Fulltime RV group on Facebook that might come in handy. Folks there were talking about this wall-mounted ceramic heater as a complimentary heater in their RVs. Advantages: no open heating elements, and it only draws 2 amps.

    cut hole in outside wall . add window unit that does both heat and cool. problem solved and that way next summer you won't be asking us about how to cool your reloading area.

    That's the solution I have to my shop building. Putting window Heater/ac combo. A bit pricy but will work. Moving all my gun cleaning and work table to my small building. Going to build a smaller shed to put Lawn mower and shovels rakes (etc) that takes up a lot of room.
    When warm weather comes up will be running utilities to it.

    I say mount it (window heater/cooler) into the door in the garage that goes outside.
    You can get a spare door and mess it up.

    Most of those also use compressed air.

    No , it had a pump to bring waste oil up from the tank in the pit . the clean burn service / repair company was out of Edmond at the time , we had to vac the burner box out after a couple months and check the ing probes from time to time , but it was ez to take care of .

    Niceee............few options I can look over.
    No outside door to mount a window heater/cooler into. The wall my work bench is on faces the front patio, not sure momma would like a a/c looking unit hanging out there but it's a thought.
    Sure temping to set up my barrel tent stove and run the flue out the window but then I have to go cut wood, make son split and stack it etc. I know I know, I whine a lot! :) :)

    Thanks guys
