dennis ruley: try this heidi.

Herman Vogel: try painting it with High Heat Flat black paint,,,about 8% more heat dissipation

ewbray1: Made a few modifications to the design! Used an “orchard terra cotta flower pot” INSTEAD of a “standard terra cotta flower pot” for the outer pot. Those come with a hole in the bottom and four (4) slits on the sides near the bottom of the pot. Blocked the hole in the bottom with aluminum foil held down with some old valve cover gasket sealer, that I had laying around in my tool box, now instead of the warmed air escaping out the top of the unit, the warmed air is distributed out the four (4) slits in the side of the flower pot thus spreading the warmed air in a more horizontal fashion for more evenly distribution of warmed air throughout the area! Found a way to have a much more STABLE base for the unit. I used an old 10 inch cast iron frying pan instead of the Ad Hoc "two (2) pieces of wood on a table". Then fitted an upside down 8 inch round metal basket inside the cast iron frying pan that raised the flower pots level slightly higher (approx 2 inches) than the cast iron frying pan's edge's level to let oxygen to get to the flames. The terra cotta flower pots can be secured to the metal basket with either thin wire or ball chains. The cast iron frying pan's handle also makes it easier to move the space heater, {if necessary}, besides giving it a low circular heavy base that is NOT going to be tipped over! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10471230/Frying%20Pan.jpg & https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10471230/American-metalcraft black-round-wire-basket-8 in.jpg To modify (compact) the source of heat, the next thing to do is to put vegetable shortening in an empty 5 oz or 12 oz tuna fish can and then put an old saucer in a frying pan that was half full of water. Once the water came to a boil, place the can of vegetable shortening on the saucer. As the vegetable shortening melts, vanilla extract or lemon extract is added to the solution; this gives the vegetable shortening candle a very nice aroma while it burns. Keep adding vegetable shortening and the flavor extract until the can is full to the brim. Cooling the liquid back into a solid is best performed by either placing the can in the refrigerator and/or the freezer. After the solution becomes solid, push four (4) of the small birthday cake candles equidistant from each other into the matrix. The birthday cake candles supplies wicks that are better than any DIY homemade wicks. By melting the vegetable shortening first, this REMOVES all of the air that the manufacturer places in the product during its production. This will help insure 5+ hours of burn time per oz. for each wick in the matrix. Now there is one (1) fire unit, instead of four (4) separate fire units, that should give the user 5+ hours of continuous burn time with the 5 oz can and 10+ hours of continuous burn time for the 12 oz can with the flower pot space heater! The 'secret' to good design of any device is to REDUCE the number of functioning parts down to the bare minimum! If the user wants to stick more with the original design, the user could also make a {lamp oil and/or cooking oil} candle out of an old 2.5 oz. baby food jar X 4 and use those instead of tea lights since the user can get about 5 hours of burn time for each ounce of fluid! This way the user can refill the fluid candle bottles as needed and there is a much less chance of the heater being knocked over.

ewbray1: Found a way to have a much more STABLE base for the unit. I used an old 10 inch cast iron frying pan instead of what was sown in the video. Then fitted an upside down 8 inch round metal basket to the cast iron frying pan, securing the two together with six (6) simple ½ capacity paper clamps, that raised the flower pots level slightly higher (approx 1⅞ inches) than the cast iron frying pan's edge's level to let oxygen to get to the flames. The terracotta flower pots can be secured to the metal basket with either thin wire or ball chains.
