The toaster oven I use for arms had a slight temp problem, as in 100C overshoots. I filed the thermostat points, as they were a tad fried, and it is now much more betterer.

It never was very accurate or stable at maintaining a given temp, so decided to add a better temp controller. This is a 20 buck PID controller kit from that ebay place.

This is just proof of concept, but it performs admirably on it's own breadboard, and will be installed in it's own cool case as soon as I get around to it.

Does your oven sport a rotisserie? the one used by Gil Gundersen & John Thorp had a rotisserie and those arms came out well done:-)

Returning with memory in the early 60s, one evening my mother refused to cook a potato souffle because the oven smelled like toasted epoxy resin !!

Your mother was right!!  The stuff epoxy emits as it cures WILL make you sick.

 

Do not use your armature oven for food.

Back in the days maybe I wasn't already in the teen years and I was ignoring the very concept of pollution..( in the south of Italy it wasn't any industrial grouth yet)

Growing up the son of New Mexico Spaniards our oven was rarely used for cooking, the broiler was used for making chili ribs, pork ribs smothered in Red or Green Chili. If any of my epoxy fumes managed to stick around they did not have a chance against New Mexico Chili fumes. Most of our food was ranch food, Chili at every meal, eggs, beans & tortillas. Guys like Dan DeBella and Dave Fortner got to sample my parents New Mexico style food and liked it. Lesson to be had always sterilize your oven with hot chili after baking your arms.

I'm hungry now. Could you post one or two of those recipes? Nor for the arms!

To keep it simple look for "Baca's" or Bueno brand red or green chili in your grocers freezer, both are made and sold by the Baca family. Follow directions and you have the start of something good, the things you can do with New Mexico Chili are limited by your imagination. Sorry for the thread drift.
