Cold days in the shop are something many woodworkers would like to leave behind in the old year, and the new version of Mr. Heater’s Portable Buddy MH9BX propane heater is designed to achieve that goal. It weighs in at eight pounds, with a fold-down carry handle for portability. Both a low-oxygen shut-off system and tip-over shut-off ensure safer operation. The Portable Buddy can be set to high or low heat, for 4,000 or 9,000 BTUs. A disposable 1-lb. tank of propane will power it for six hours, or a standard 20-lb. tank will provide 110 hours of warmth. Mr. Heater Portable Buddy has a 2010 suggested price of $99.99.
