    Medieval Heater Shield

    I AM SO CURIOUS! Weight is an absolute must when considering what materials to use. I want to make a shield for my 6 yr old son but am learning that traditional woods may not only be cost prohibitive but also too heavy after completion. How do we lighten up a 45lb heater?

    Would you contact me to give me more insights as to your build? I have many many questions. For example: what type of wood did you use? What species was the plywood and how thick was it before you started?

    Every pair of touchscreen gloves that I have seen use a different colored conductive pad- that eventually dissipates heat faster than the rest of the glove. What if anything do you do differently to prevent heat loss while maintaining conductivity?

    Once you have converted doc to ac then use killawatt to measure your real time ac wattage.

    I recognize that multimeter from harbor freight. Nice- because with a coupon they are free. I have Harbor Freight's 45w kit and a 7a charge controller. The problem ai have is that it is not water resistant. I never would have thought to tie in the multimeter to be used as a digital gauge. Genius!

    And I would suggest using Kill-a-watt to help with your addition so that you can ensure the math is right before buying an inverter- count up how many watts you plan on using on all your devices and get an inverter that will cover a continuous load for that rating.
