Machine is working as expected. It does not have a permanent home yet and can only be plugged in near the welders as it needs a 15A socket.

This machine does not require induction, but requires onsite supervision while in operation.

This machine is to be used for heat treating metal and drying clay only, and is never to be used with plastics or flammable material.

This machine can not be used while you are off site.

Do not use or keep flammable materials near this oven such as spray paint.

The 250 degrees Celsius is actually ~200 which is the ideal temperature to treat 1075 or 1084 steel. The timer can let you set 120 minutes which is how long the heat treatment will take to treat 1075 or 1084 steel. The temperature should be set around 80-100C for drying clay. The time to dry will vary based on thickness. Be sure to air dry as much as possible first as if it is too wet it will disintegrate in the oven.

Required Enclosed shoes are required, no open sandals, thongs etc
Recommended Please wear goggles or a face shield
Warning Gloves are PPE against burns and sharp metal
