Drying Ovens

From CoMakingSpace Wiki

We got two decommissioned lab drying ovens that can be used like a normal kitchen oven, with the important difference that these ovens are for non-food items.

House Rules

Use common sense - a running oven consumes a lot of energy and can even be a fire hazard. Therefore, do not leave an oven running when you leave the Space!

Uses

Feel free to try whatever is safe, i.e. certainly won't damage the oven or any people!

So far, members have used these ovens to...

after this scooter part was heated in a drying oven and the bearings were cooled down with freeze spray, the parts slid together easily and became solidly connected once everything was back at the same temperature

It may also be possible to temper metal after hardening - has anyone tried?
