    hello dbug10
    try this www.tempco.com then click on band heater go to tubular heathers
    you can get a kind of oven element 5kw the shape you want
    and look at representative section you will find a distributor near you for sure
    also you can ask for industrial heaters at your appliance distributor
    hope that will help you

        I guess you can't find any old ovens. You can get cheap elements here

            who has done BTU calcs?... specificly;

            X btu's to heat Y cubic foot oven to Z temp.
            If it jams; Force it. And if it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

            I can go from 0 to "What seems to be the problem Officer?" in 3 seconds."

              How well the oven is constructed and insulated makes a huge difference. But, I think it's about 650 BTU per cubic foot..

                if electric i use 350watts per cubic foot.
                when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it
