Hi All,
I guess maybe I should post some pic of my projects, so here goes.

First here is the pedestal that I built for the HF tool grinder that I purchased a couple of months ago.

The next three are of the power coating oven that I made from a steel tool box about 24 inch sq. and 8 ft long. The out side of the box was covered in fiberglass house insulation that the paper had been removed from. A metal frame was welded around the box, that was a mistake, when the box gets hot it wants to walk. The box should have been left to float in the frame.The first pic is of the upper inside showing the hangers and the fan that circulates the air.

This pic is of the 8kW heater in the lower part of the box. The heater was salvaged from a vacume sign forming machine.

This pic is the controll pannel. It has a thermostat and timer from granger.
