I have looked at the ones at Bunnings for the price they are good value.

DDP Ours was over 3k. ??? Though I  think I have a sentimental thing with the Nectre brand as I remember being given the job of looking after the Nectar on the farm as a kid. Lighting the fire each night after school. Had  getting that fire box humming real fast down to a fine art. Cleaning the glass with some vinegar and fine ash from the fire box. Nice to see its still warming the house 30+ years later when I visit the farm.

That said the Bunnings one looked solid and will probably last just as long. Though from memory I think it was the door catch on the inside I wasn't as impressed with. Though I could have it mixed up.

All that chicken and tatas makes me think it is a kiwi or tongan foot in that high quality niki thing!

Made me look at our stove/heater and wonder what I could do with the top or bottom of it to add
an oven.
Klondike from NZ make good stoves is they are still in business.
Everhot made good slow combustion stoves as well.
Occassionally you can pick up a bargain as my mate got the wood heater for their hut for $250
2nd hand with the chimney kit!
A lot cooler morning today, winter is coming now!
I see the dollar is climbing against the greenback.
More mine closures coming up then!

Over the next 2-3 months. Fixed price for this contract but if I do another I can up it if the $ goes strong.

Trouble is it's for people in Brazil and their money has dived of late so they can't afford too much.

The last job I did for them was almost a charity job, I just chipped in to help a mate who had taken on the job and got out of his depth. I said $12.50 ph because I thought it was going to be a small job and anyway I was just helping out right?

Well I wound up doing 95% of the job and it went on for maybe a year (very part time admittedly).

Here's their brochure for the finished product (warning, 3.3 meg)

All that hardware was my design (the internal electronics, not the artwork and boxes).

Still I can't complain, that money bought a lot of toys :)

Smelly Pong (aka Penny Wong), clive palmer did not make the list?

Shhh, just between you and me I have $38.50 in a Cayman Is account. USD so it's worth more than it appears at first glance.

One word for that lot and I can't use it here. But maybe ol' Clive isn't as big a douche bag as he appears right now.
