As it gets colder and colder everyday I have been thinking of how I am able to heat my workshop. Im thinking that propane is out of the question. Any ideas of how to heat a shed abouy 20x20? Electric heat?

The cheapest way I can think of, besides wood is a Kero Sun. You have to be careful and not use it too much, my brother used one to heat his trailer and now he says kerosene fumes make him sick.

You are working INSIDE? You know about styrene poisoning? It's no joke. Don't think closing your workshop up enough to heat it is a good idea at all- of course I don't know what your ventilation system is like.

I'd rather be cold than have brain damage! I work outside even in winter. A heating pad or heat lamp will work to bump the cure. You might want to search "Pouring in cold weather". Lots of posts on that.

Please take care of yourself!

I have proper ventilation in my shed thanks to whom ever posted about how to build a ventilation hood. But I will need a way to heat my workshop prior to working.

I live in where it gets pretty darn cold in the winter and can't pour outside, the stuff wouldn't cure and it was too windy, but my apartment's not appropriate (kids), so I was going to use a small unfinished area in the basement,
but in addition to poor ventilation, the fumes would travel upwards, into the unfinished ceiling (the landlords are miserly and won't fix it) and into the living area.

So I pondered what to do and came up with the idea of getting a 10-inch tabletop fan, duct-taping it to a 10-inch tapering down to 6-inch aluminum flexible ventilation duct hose and putting the other end of the hose out the small basement window.

I figure that the fan will suck the fumes away into the hose and out the window, and that should take care of fume-spread to the rest of the apartment upstairs, and I'll have a nose/mouth mask, clear goggles and gloves and should be ok.

I'm gearing up to do a pour after I solve a coloring problem and finish a major school project due this week, so I'll find out how well it does in reality Very Happy

I saw that sweet set up that someone had done with a hood, but that's something that's beyond me in carpentry as well as the fact that I can't put in any kind of permanent fixture here or it comes heavily out of our security deposit.

Please keep us posted on how it works. I too live in a very cold climate and have pondered much the same questions.

Just switch to cold-weather resins. By that I mean use pine pitch, honey, beeswax, etc.

Those are resins that cure with COLD temperatures and not HOT ones (like manufacturing resins, epoxy/polyester)

I recommend using baking liners so it doesn't stick. I haven't had any other luck otherwise.

What I use for winter pouring is by placing heating mats that are made for reptile tanks underneath my trays. With a thermostat you can set it to a good constant temp, I like working at 30C. The heat rises through the tray and lets the resin heat evenly with no cold spots. Layering this way takes a little practice. Winters are pretty mild here though rarely getting to 1-2C and never lower so this may or may not work in colder climates.
