    Re: Lamps-Like heating a house with the doors & windows open

    Hi !
    I made a powder coat oven using plywood sheets on the outside. I use one 1500 watt lamp with a hole cut in the plywood to fit the lamp. The inside is insulated with aluminum insulating sheets and sealed. I also put a temperature probe inside connected to a temp control unit. I've been able to get up to 450 degrees %F with no problems.That was three years ago and it still works great. The cab size is 24" square 50" tall.
    Should be easy to make.

    Good Luck.

Consulting the forums only confirmed that they don't work as a stand-alone solution, yet you sell them that way.

            I agree with John , I also bought the pro kit , spent the extra money for the bigger IR lamp and I am not very satisfied with the way the products were advertised. Just seeing this post was started in 2004 CASWELL should have done a better job in advertising the lamps as a product that would have to be modified to use or take them out of the kits. I fill at this time That I have been a little suckered on this product and fill I will probably be looking elsewhere for my PC needs.

              Seriously, this plywood oven is very intriguing. lol

              I would like to construct something big enough to throw 4 wheels in at a time and also big enough to fit a roll bar in.
