    So the oven is done and wired up and all I can say is wow. You have to see it to believe it. The size of the oven is 24”x24”x50” so it can handle swords :)

    That was one of your best buys and re-builds. Great oven ... I'm jealous.

    WOW JT, you did a GREAT job there. Makes me think of work before I retired. That's what I did lots of - designing control systems. You're surely set up for commercial HT now. Good for you.

    Looks like a clean install. Is there a convection fan?

    Yeah there is. There is a 3ph blower mounted under it. It sucks the air in from the bottom of the oven and blows it up a duct in the back and across the elaments and then back in the top through a defuser plate.

    That's the most legit tempering oven I've seen outside of a large professional HT specialist shop. And it's sword length! I hadn't even considered that...

    That is hugely impressive JT...

    It amuses me that the bottom temp reading is on top of the upper temp reading on the front though :p
