Waste Oil Heater Burns all Waste Oils

I built this shop heater because it was getting cold. A few people saw it and asked if I would be willing to draw up plans for them to buy. The thing works so good I've decided to sell the plans. It is built using very commonly available materials, many of which I found in other peoples trash. I put a lot of work into making these plans easy to read and to be understand by anyone. This heater works very well and there are no filters to change or fuel nozzles to clog. It burns extremely clean with absolutely no smoke.. So here it is,

A customer who purchased the plans built the burner part of it and posted a video to show off the flame produced. This was his first test.
You can see the video here at photobucket.com
