I got a 40x50'+ garage. Lots of spaces. Too bad it'* "open" air with a gravel floor.

I'd need a jet engine. Ever tip the front of a torpedo heater upwards till the flame goes out and smokes like a B, and then set it down top ignite again?... Talk about "afterburner effect" I wouldn't do it in an enclosed space though. It'll choke you out just before your running out the door after the re-ignition patting your eyebrows to make sure their not still on fire.

I need to cover the rafters in my shop, then the heat would stay in instead of going out the roof.

I must be lucky. My salamander only goes out when I turn it off or if my thermostat is set low enough. Doesn't smell that bad, but I can't smell that well anymore (maybe because of being fiberglass/plastic worker).

Maybe the pump pressure is too high. Just a guess.

More like the igniter is dirty or wearing out. When you tip them up, it turns the igniter off, but the Kerosene keeps coming, set it down and Flame On.

swapped in leather seats out of a '97 TSI Grand Cherokee into my '95 Laredo. The wife was a huge help as usual. Next up the 3" Rough Country lift.
