I'm actually close to becoming a distributor for FB, but don't have anything at the moment.
There is someone in Duluth who is a distributor, but I don't know if he has anything on hand.
What are your questions, or do you just want to 'see' something before purchase?

Wow the guy who builds ovens as inexpensively as possible is becoming a distributor... I guess we can expect great service at very low overhead here in Minnesota.

I don't have the money to buy a nice oven, but that doesn't mean I can't sell them. My main business has been hit hard (lost 80% of sales) so I needed a cheap solution... and it works very well. :D

Hi Tman1,

Are you going to be a "stocking distributor" with ovens on hand to view?

gvanbeek might write a message on the Regional Forum asking for folks in his area who might let him look at their FB oven and ask questions.

Cheers,

If by stocking you mean more than one, probably not.

I think this is a great. I meant my previous comments as a complement to your fugal nature and ability to see a solution that fit your needs without breaking the bank. I got a great number of the items for my oven on Craigslist for that very reason. Frugal is not cheap it just makes good sense.

Thanks for setting yourself up to provide new access locally. I am sure you will be providing great service and a unique perspective on WFO building.

Thanks for the thumbs up. My frugal nature has been honed since the economy went south. I would prefer to have a nice, real oven as I don't get the residual heat baking that I would love to try.... a mobile unit is probably in my future too. Remember to hit me if you need some wood for the surround, you never know what I would have laying around out here.
