Shot some powder on a set of triple trees tonight and decided to try the IR light – the single bulb 1500 watt. It’s been 6″ from the part for the last 3 1/2 hours and hasn’t hit 250 degrees yet. While it’s been a great light for curing paint I’ve decided it’s not going to do the job. I need to find a larger toaster oven or finish building the bigger one I started on.
I have a feeling that it’s because the part is 1″ thick since others have stated they had success using these lights. I’m only posting this for those of you who might be thinking of getting one.
