Chapter 1 - Post Curing


Post Curing is performed in a home made oven. Here one is made from sheets of 1/2" polystyrene foam.


The heat source is a heat gun used for stripping paint set on low. A fan is located in the rear to keep the air moving and a meat thermometer is used to maintain proper temperature. We are looking for about 150 degrees F for four hours.


The clamp is used as part of the support structure for the part. The epoxy will go soft during the post cure so insure the part being cured is fixtured to maintain its shape.


A fan is used to move the air around.


The hot air gun is simply mounted.


An ordinary meat thermometer is used.
