Hi Michael, i'm using a wooden box about 2 cubic
feet, one 100w light globe. Globe has 7% drop
resistor to give globe life over hundreds of thousands
switching cycles and switched by a relay at 240vac.
Circuit is just 3 transistors, common collector amps
each with about 10 gain, so 1000 gain total, a pot
and nice large dial. Thermostat from junkbox.
Adjustable from about 25'C to 55'C. Works like a
charm, keeps temp within about 0.2'C of where you
set the pot. We use it for curing resins and I
also use it a lot for drying things, great at about
40'C. All built from junk in an afternoon. :o)
