Kuma Oil Stoves

Does anyone have experience with the Kuma Oil Stoves?

I'm looking for something to heat a 440 sq ft insulated workshop and thier smallest oil stove looks great. The shop was previously heated with oil so a 250gal tank is in place along with a 6" chimney. The old stove is gone.

Now I run a vent free LP heater but that sucks for occasional use as the moisture it generates is no good for tools, etc.

If I opted for a wood stove, I doubt I'd burn more than 1.5 cords per year, if even that. A wood stove would also be good because I can burn whatever wood scraps my few projects generate.

Any thoughts on the Kuma oil stove, or should I just get a nice small wood stove?
