Heating Help! Answered
So my new major has me in a machine shop that is at my disposal. I have made a few shift knobs but with living in the Northeast it can get cold in the winter months.
I want to heat the knobs, which means finding something that is...
- Small enough to fit inside a roughly 1" dia cylinder, depth minimal.
- Quickly heat the knob
- But not over heat it
- Run on a 12v standard supply
- Minimal cost
I have considered trying to find a "Heating Element" but am unable to find such in a size I need and within a price I want. Maybe a soldering Iron element?
I tried "Peltier" but they all are over-sized and debate the conflicting effects of hot and cold. However if figured out I could flip it for summer.
I debated running a resistor/other electronic component with just enough power to cause it to heat up, but am worried about it breaking.
I wanted to do a high power light bulb, but don't see that working as well as I plan.
So I am kinda at a loss...if you have a specific item you can link me to let me see it, or just let me know of an item I can use.
