Building the Heat Box

June 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

After tearing down our old toaster oven, we now have 4 heating elements and some electronics we could repurpose for our vacuform machine. Using roof flashing, aluminum angle (L-channel) and a few bolts, we’re going to build a heat box enclosure for our heating elements while spacing them out for even heat coverage.


LESSON CONTENT:

  1. Measuring Out and Bending Roof Flashing
  2. Marking Heating Element Spacing & Attachment Strategy
  3. Building Heat Box Frame with Aluminum Angle (L-channel)
  4. Bolting The Frame to the Enclosure
  5. Wiring the Heating Elements
