Pre-Order your Log Rite Fireplace Tool Kit Today!

Three easy payments, and one complicated one!

Tell me that wouldn't be a good idea! Logrite fireplace tools...I'm sick of having to screw my poker and shovel back together, I could just make my own out of steel, but I think alum would be better, and what could be better than if Log Rite took a whack at it?

I've never seen an aluminum fireplace tool.

I'm thinking I sort of like the heft of steel/iron fireplace tools. However, it might be interesting to try. Maybe the reason I like a little weight is because that's all I've ever used.  I wonder if the high heat conductivity of aluminum would be a problem?

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

At my first apartment, I got a cheap aluminum hibachi (don't remember if someone gave it to me or got it at a garage sale).  I used to get it going quite well with charcoal.  Had a bit of a fire from chicken fat and melted one of the grills!

i have been watching this thread and trying to come up with a clever response.  This thread continues to leave me speechless!

I don't think we will be making aluminum fireplace tools any time soon.  Sorry to disappoint you.

After almost a year in the making, Log Rite will be revealing their new fireplace poker set on the first of the new year!


The demand is huge, the suspense is exuberant, the crowd is roaring!!
