But I once left some fine Koa binding strips cooking on this heated form (well, one just like it) heated by those 200W bulbs. Went out of the shop for just a minute to check on something else. Which made me remember yet something else, which made me forget about the cooking Koa.
The following morning I happened to step back into the shop, just to be greeted by smoke and the smell of fire. The sides of the form, 3/4" plywood, were burned through, and I had the finest set of curly charcoal strips you've ever seen. All the electrical connections were melted, and we'd have been in real trouble had not the bulbs burned themselves out. So yes, there is heat to spare in this rig!
