OK Jonser... here's the deal- bought it for $800- she was a bit rusted up- NEVER USED. Sat for a couple years in a back yard. Sheesh. Sooo- was blasted, and here's the rest of the project. Gonna go to Bro's with a can of Crisco and heat it up tomarrow- Went with flat black 2 coats. Got $100 in the blasting and $200 in the hi-temp paint.

OK here's some shots... got it primed and painted today. Gonna give her a few days to cure before firing it up.


Here's some shots of her nekkid! :eek:

Now that is a heck of a deal, looks great. What would she cost new. I would guess shipping would be almost what you paid for it:msn-wink:

First off - who buys a Klose and NEVER uses it! Straight up great deal on this one Rich!

You absolutely gotta airbrush the Mad Hunky on the vertical door.

Can't wait til you get some more pics back. Thanks for sharing it with us.

somewhere between $2300 and $4500 depending on the model and add ons.

Yes, the 20X40. Only optional stuff I think is it has the stainless steel racks. Love that. Oh, and the removable baffle and the hanging rods in the vert cabinet.

Man those SS shelves are $200 EACH? There's 6 of them! Hmmm that can't be right? Sooo...looks like this one would run $3600

Update: She lives and breathes!

Very well, apparently. Bro had her to 350 no sweat, and down to 250 easily enough. The vert with the baffle in runs about 75 or so less... and runs same temps about as the horizontal with it out. NICE! Lookie that thin blue :{)

Yes SIR! Matter of fact, bro says he picked up a party this coming weekend. Less than 40 slabs, so don't need the Beast. More like 8. Looks like the Klose will be featured. Gotta get the boy to do some trial runs of course, I'm gonna tell him to go with a couple slabs and a couple butts and check her out.
