Rocky, plug it into your dryer outlet,
it'll draw 20 amps.

Find the center of heating element,...
rewire for 120 volts,...  40 amps!

Looks a whole lot like a small Salamander, never seen one before.
I like Kovar's idea!

Those look like the 1950s.

Nice heaters! Those would be good for barn or workshop heating. It's cool that you have a matching pair of them, too.

I built my own which doesn't look as nice as those but it is quiet and puts out 10kW of heat.
