I'd think that a cold dry day would make static a problem, where you'd potentially damage the oxide gate layer and destroy the MOSFET when you touched it (think big spark jumping from finger to doorknob).How is your reliability?
Thanks for the response. I've seen those electric heating elements glow orange-red when they are at full blast with no pots on them, my Grandma's old GE stove did that often. From this link below and my memory I would guess that they reached almost 900C:http://www.blksmth.com/heat_colors.htmSo I think building a K-23 firebrick enclosure around such a heating element might work. I'd agree with you and TheCrafsMan that fixturing would be a lot more difficult, though. But my goal is to repair a tiny item that I could never hold in place accuately by hand, so I already need to machine some sort of fixturing. I guess I'll need to make it from steel, not aluminum.I think I'll try it, if it fails miserably I'll let you all know!
Do you have any thoughts on using some sort of oven for the heat source instead of a torch? I was thinking of building a small oven with fire brick and a cal rod from an old electric cooktop.
