Default WTB: Reiff hotstrip oil sump heater

Looks like I will be venturing into the frozen highlands of Colorado this winter. Thought I'd check to see if someone had a Reiff hotstrip oil sump heater they never installed, before I go the Spruce route. Application is an angle-valve IO-360 in an RV-8.

When in doubt, buy direct from Reiff. Terrific folks to talk to on the phone - they make doing business easy. Lovely personal touch, and the same price as Spruce.

I plugged mine in yesterday after flight and installed my cowl cover. Went to fly this morning, OAT 28F, oil temp 110F. Started right up smooth as butter.
