I received the #16 heater from Warren (Thank you) yesterday.  It was in great shape, with very little fettling to do.  The fount is in excellent condition inside and out.  I am grateful to have this in my collection! 

I just wiped it down and blew out the manifold to get the money shots.  I do plan on removing the manifold and plate below it (It's pretty rusty), and give it a more thorough clean.

When I first lit it, I was amazed as how much heat it throws!  I love the glow coming off of the radiants when it's dark.


This is after the genny is all warmed up (Running low):

Running high (Looks like I have to work on cleaning the inside of the manifold a bit better (second one from the right is a bit lower than the rest):

It looks great.   Was one of the cleanest ones I've had.  I really enjoy the size of the #16 as they are easier to store and move around when needed.

Thanks for posting.

When you do work on it, flip the grate around.  The long bars go to the outside so you don't see the tack weld.  (Just FYI)

You are right, the heater is super clean. My anal side kicked in and I wanted to remove the rust from the hardware.

Gotcha on the grate. Thank you. :)

Thanks! Maybe I'll start a new thread in this section. This will be a bit of a project to get going again but will be worth it.
