Need Advice on homemade Broiler
I'm making a 24"x24" vacuform machine. I have the base built but racking my brain for a cost effective heating source.
Is it possible to take a replacement broiler element for an electric stove and just solder a split extension cord to each side?
Or better yet get an adjustable thermostat cord like one that would come with an electric skillet and use that?
Is this a safe way to do this? The unit that would hold this, would be steel and wood to help radiant heat down plus keep anything or anyone getting burned.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
