Heating Elements from an Old Toaster Oven

June 7 @ June 7 - June 7

We’re tearing down my thrift store toaster oven to harvest the 4 heating elements inside as well as the electronics so we can build our own custom heat box for the vacuform machine. Second-hand stores usually have a good stock of these toaster ovens but you can also use heating elements from space heaters.


  1. Introduction to Vacuform Machine Components
  2. Overall Design and Strategy for our Build
  3. Pulling the Electronics from the Toaster Oven
  4. Pulling the Heating Elements from the Toaster Oven
  5. Discussing a Wiring Strategy

Power Drill
Tin Snips
Wire Cutter
