• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Workshop heat

What are people using and happy with to heat the workshop during the cold winter?

I've got an unheated garage that I'm setting up. It's under one of the rooms of the house, but basically exposed on three sides, so it gets cold in there here in NY. I figure some portable heat source could do the trick, at least to get the room to a comfortable level.

Electric heaters are expensive to run. Would anyone in this situation use a propane heater or something else like that? Are these dangerous with sawdust around? One thing I haven't looked into yet isrequirements for unvented heaters. Any favorite heating methods?
