This is built for 110 single stage 15 amps. As many elements as you want so long as you don't exceed the wireing  or the ssr which is rated for 40 amps. My other one is 240 vac 40 amps with ramp and soak cycles (90 steps max) it costs twice as much

I'm going to get some rock wool board tomorrow  I can get enough for a 2x4 heat box for $60 then I'll start building it. I have some parts I need to powder coat any way.  Bob

I was talking to someone yesterday after buying my mineral wool board He suggested using a job box. I'm going to see if I can find one reasonable as I really liked the Idea. Bob

Hi to all,  Ceracote is great just got done building an (the size of a phone booth) using 3 zones of controlled heat and circulating fan.  One thing I found about it acetone is the only thing that will clean it, so if you get in the habit of wiping the paint nozzle on your t shirt be aware that when you put it in the washer it is not cured and it wiped on the washer bowl, then when the boss throws towels and such in it wipes of on them because it is not cured,  but all is well because the dryer will cure it and it will not come out.  Makes for sorce of shop rags but not a peaceful evening.  So now I just keep rag in my pocket.
