Hello! I needed an electric oven to cure powder coat paint. I could have just got a used electric oven, but I thought that would be an eye sore in the shop (ok garage). I just happened to have an old Coke machine that stopped working sitting there. Upon further inspection, I noticed the Coke machine had all steel construction, 2 inch thick insulated walls. It would need heating elements, a glass window, a heat controller, and a lot of power! I gutted it and started the transformation. I wanted to keep it looking like a working Coke machine from the front so I mounted the window on the side and the controls on the back. The front sign lights up making a great night light too! I just ordered a second heating element and SSR to double the heat output to 7,000 watts.
