Just received my steelhead fan and I’m absolutely wrapped. It arrived in Australia two weeks after ordering and is more beautiful than it looked in the photos. The level of workmanship is superb and most importantly works as described. Mesmerising to watch; a welcome addition to our home. - Jim Australia (Sept 2020)

You made me very happy with your really nice engine!!! And I was surprised when the postman came with your (very professional) packed engine already three day's after my order- from the UK to me to Germany!!! The function is as perfect as the engine looks like. I also like to let it run if I don't need to distribute the heat in my living room. I enjoy this engine every day if I enter my living room!!!   Thank you very much indeed!!! - Gerhard Germany (July 2020)

Thank You - Husband told me ages ago he wanted a stove top thermometer from yourselves so I remembered the name. Needless to say he was very happy. He said he loved the engineered piece of equipment! He is very pleased and it does look great. Arrived really quick as well. Great present for the man who has everything. - Carrie UK (March 2020)

I have had my Windjammer for about three weeks now and it easily has over ten hours operating time.  The build quality and materials used are A1! I have set my wick flush with the top of the burner neck and with this small flame the engine can be started within a minute.  Once warmed up, the engine has a good speed with this small flame and no noise or vibration!  Very pleased to add this engine to my collection! - Chris Canada

THANKYOU. Fast, accurate and a truly excellent experience in dealing with you from the first phone call to the delivery.  The Twinspeed is everything your website and YouTube hinted at. A great addition to heating our house and it’s also good enough simply to stare at!! - Bill UK (February 2020)

Just a few words to say how impressed we are with our new Sidewinder fan.
Upon opening our new fan and thermometer the quality of the items are immediately obvious. As an Engineer it was easy to really appreciate the workmanship that has gone into both items, they are simply sublime.
I can only say don’t waste your money on one of the cheap electric stove fans or the highly inaccurate thermometers you see on the big box online sellers they are not even comparable.
Operation wise initially we were worried that our stove wouldn’t get hot enough for it to work but those fears were soon put to rest on first lighting of the stove. Once up to around 100 degrees C give the blades a gentle nudge and it starts off really slowly as the stove temp rises it runs silently and speeds up so that it’s really noticeable in the room.
On a personal note we went for the sidewinder as it looks more “mechanical “ than the standard fan and reminds me of belt driven record decks from the day absolutely gorgeous.
The thermometer is a high quality item also and simply sits on the stove top. Great idea to use the rivets to show the peak operating range. Great piece of industrial design.
Just a note for prospective buyers it is made from a solid billet of aluminium and so don’t expect it to be magnetic it simply sits on the stove top. But then again why would you want to stick it on the side of the stove when it’s looks like a piece of art?
Don’t hesitate just buy it you know you want too  - Mike United Kingdom (October 2019)

About two years ago, we purchased a Sidewinder for our wood burning stove (due to limited space), we have been extremely delighted with it and it has been 100% reliable.  They are not the cheapest stove fans, but of those we tried, there is no comparison, this is a product that you absolutely get what you pay for.  To be honest, we don't know which is the best feature - the tremendous engineering, the silent operation, the simple beauty of it, the efficiency or ... its discussion attraction with the interest of all who visit and see it - whether the stove is lit and the fan is working or whether it's just motionless on top of the unlit stove!  Oh, and a word about Warpfive's customer service... it is excellent - we have experienced fast and clear answers to all questions.  Ordering is very easy, delivery is fast and secure by reliable couriers.  We have had no hesitation in now purchasing a Steelhead to join our soon to be installed stove cooker in another room in our home and we are expectant of the same superlative features!  Thank you Warpfive.' - Adrian

Thank you for my Glasshopper Stove Fan. The product came very well packaged and no damage was incurred during transport.  I appreciated getting updates on tracking progress.  The fan is certainly a very impressive, precise and beautiful piece of engineering.  I enjoy explaining to people how it works.  Warpfive was very helpful in answering my queries. - Andrij Australia (April 2020)

Our fan sits on top of the wood-burning stove in our lounge. It is very satisfactory: it is appealing to look at and it efficiently, and gently, wafts warm air across the room when the stove is in use. Keith UK (Sept 2020)

I bought the Glasshopper fan recently (as a birthday present to myself; always safer to buy one’s own) and I’m delighted. It is a lovely piece of engineering, and beautiful piece of kinetic sculpture. Both my father (84) and daughter (10) are entranced by it. The fact that it works at lower temperatures is ideal for our stove which has a cooking section meaning it’s top does not get so hot. Well done Warpfive and well done Rev. Dr Stirling! - Antonio UK (February 2020)

Got the Windjammer 2 today.  I absolutely love it.  Thank you - good job!  I have a fairly large collection of Stirling engines but no fan - until now.  It's a wonderful and much appreciated addition.  I've been running it for the last half hour - it's perfect.  The workmanship is gorgeous.  It will be frequently enjoyed for a very long time - Mark USA (January 2020)

My Warpfive Sidewinder arrived promptly, safely and has exceeded all expectations from the moment it came out of its packaging!  It truly is a thing of beauty and has been photographed and shared numerous times already. The workmanship is fantastic and it could quite easily be put on display but not only is it beautiful to look at it also does its job perfectly! Once my stove is up to temperature all that is required is a gentle flick in a clockwise direction and off it goes, silent and efficient. Gradually building speed until it’s a full revs and moving nicely warmed air around, not only the living room but around the whole house! Just open the doors and you can feel the warmth circulating around the whole house. It may be a thing of beauty when it’s still but when it’s in motion it transfixes your attention! The stroboscopic effect of the fine machined nuts holding the fan and drive wheels in place are somewhat hypnotic and very relaxing to watch. If you’ve not gathered, I love my Sidewinder and would not hesitate to recommend anyone to buy. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Warpfive. - Simon United Kingdom (January 2020)

We are delighted with the red Steelhead engine we bought. It's quiet with just a faint reassuring mechanical noise when going at full chat which adds to it's charm. It is also noticeably effective in transferring heat more evenly around the house. Couldn't be better!  Thanks - Pat United Kingdom (May 2019)

I like nice things. So when I decided I wanted a stove fan, Warpfive was the only way to go for me. It’s a fantastic piece of kit, really substantial and looks just the part. It’s always a talking point when people see it for the first time. I love my log burner and the stove fan just as much. If you’re considering one of these I urge you to do it; there will be no regrets. Customer service is also second to none, a real pleasure to deal with. Makes a nice change in this day and age. Thank you Warpfive!! - Adam United Kingdom (Feb 2019)

This is my second purchase. The first bought as a gift for my son two years ago. My recent purchase is for a Christmas gift. The engines are like a piece of technological art - as well as a functioning air distributor. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to other people.'   - Dave

I have been using a Warpfive Steelhead fan for two weeks, the build quality and design is superb, the detail engineering is so impressive.    The fan starts quickly and creates a ’soft' air flow without being intrusive, and really helps to create a uniform temperature throughout our large room (about 25 Sqm), it's also an immediate talking point with guests.   Is it noisy? our fire makes more noise than the fan and it's quiet, the Warpfive fan is very quiet, down to precision of the engineering.   Thrilled with the purchase highly recommend it to anyone.  - Chris
