Thank you for pointing that out to me. I do appreciate it. My first impression is that its a bit small. A cheap $30 - $60 toaster oven would be more practical for two big reasons. The Toaster ovens have a glass front. Sometimes you need to know when a piece has “Flowed Out” and that is so much easier if you can have eyes on it. Opening the door is ok but that means you lose all the heat and should add a few minutes for the oven to re-heat to temperature. Also, Powder coating leaves a contaminate… if you have a designated toaster oven… its kind of, “Big Deal” but an oven with potential for other work, it could be a problem.
I have looked at the big oven. I have parts that could make it functional again. I’m a little iffy about the method of wiring but I’m not the ultimate expert. Still I think a simple test could tell us if the setup is sound.
I really think we are being held up by very solvable problems. Heck I’ll donate a toaster oven just to make it possible for small projects and even share what I know in a class if that helps the space.
