I had a fair amount of success today with my little project. It got up as high as 202 degrees. Not bad for being held together with duct tape! It’s hard to see in the attached picture below, but the pointer is dead on 200 (just missed getting the 202 pic, dang it)
I’m going to redo the project, but this time I’m going to use wood and screws – no duct tape. I’m going to document the dimensions and materials used then put them here in case someone wants to try the project themselves.
