I like the front grille wonder what its from? I think its a great idea quite a useful oddity

Like I said in post #3, the grille on the grill  :smilewink:  is from an old kerosene heater - turned upside down. 

I agree that sets it off nicely

 

Here is one that similar - couldn't find the exact model...

Looking for the image of the heater I ran acros this Coleman 333A

I bought one of these decades ago at auction for $1 and used it to heat my small shop for several winters. With a fan blowing across it the heater worked pretty well.  Starting out with a 50/50 mixture of diesel and used motor oil to get things warmed up enough the thick oil would flow,  I could then burn straight used oil but usually still had small amounts of diesel.  My supply of oil wouldn't keep up with the demand of the thirsty heater so I went to propane.  Also, the Coleman had been so red-hot, so many times it had nearly dissolved the tin on the side.  Sheet metal was all bubbly and melted where the heat concentrated.  Wish I'd have kept it because it'd been easy to rebuild at first.  I threw it out back and left it in the weather and a good sized chunk rusted away so the scrap man sent it to China. 

Right now I have 25+ gallons of used motor oil and hydraulic oil and no way to burn it for heat.  :(
