70watt tube heaters rock. They are often under GBP25.00 and often come with a thermostat.

yep, thats the sort of thing we fitted to my dads shed as he was constantly battling his lathe rusting, once in, never had another issue with rust apart from the usual rusty fingers he has.

How large was his shed? My workshop suffers from this and its very annoying but I assumed I'd need multiple heaters as its quite large.

It is down to insulation as well as size. A single glazed wriggly tin shed will not be as well insulated as a wooden one with 75mm of Kingspan or similar. Our Armoury is concrete and brick and needs a combination of tube heater and dehumidifier.

My current shed is actually not a shed it is a brick built building with a concrete floor and a a proper roof. The problem is her indoors has one half of it with a condensing clothes dryer and all her gardening stuff.
The rest of it has several lathes a milling machine. Drill presses. Bandsaws mechanical hack saws, Compressors. Welding gear. Smelting pots. OK you get the idea. I have a square in the middle I work in I need to constantly move stuff to be able to get into a workable position. The whole thing is a accident waiting to happen.
I have my eye on another lathe but it would be impossible to shoe horn it in. I have quotes for a workshop build but the disease has put that on hold.
