I saw this online while looking for a new aquisition, and its intriguing. The price point isnt too bad, and it looks manufactured, but I cant tell for sure. Its a stretch, but can anyone ID this? Its an oscillating overtype that lacks a traditional firebox.

it's Ok

when you are reading text it's so easy to read something into the message the writer never intended. perhaps though there is a lesson for all here. a one line description of what a link should be showing would help ensure we all talk about the same thing.
