    Handy furnace, actually. That 20-inch depth is nice.

    The other needs but a small hole drilled through the platter and IC area, eye-dropper of "buffered' Muriatic Acid, "plug" of goop. Send off to the recyclers two weeks of tropical temperature fermentation, later.

    Did 60 of them at a go time before last, Hong Kong, after de-com of my server farm's RAID arrays and their PM "pulls". Minimal hassle.

    Naw...for the christmas party, I suggested we clean and re-fill the
    oil quench tank in the large Vacuum furnace with peanut oil...

    How much food can you cook in a 3' x 3' x 3' inconel basket ?

    Located near Steubenville, OH about 40 miles west of Pittsburgh, PA.

    Weight wise, its around 1500 pounds. I bought it from a machinery dealer in Kentucky and he banded it to a pallet for freight shipment, and I can do the same if the buyer isn't local.

    NONE that is safely edible with the oil you picked, even if oil-fried growth-hormone and chemical-infused alleged dreadfully over-salted "food" were not themselves a hazard to health to begin with.

    Y'all oughta see a coupla side-by-side charcoal-fired sheet-iron monster-woks feeding a whole congregation of Buddhists gathered up at the Tuen Muen temple for sumthin' special.

    One great mass of vegetables after another gets that lovely "Wok Hei" AFTER being STEAMED-up, and off the back of a single lonely spoonful of Sesame oil, toss-fried by a 90-year-old expert Great Grand Ma more than 80 years at her craft.

    Her Daughters and Grand Daughters much the same, Buddhist or not. Thankfully.

    I'd love to have it, but I have no business use for it so I can't expense it and my wife is likely to kill me if I bought it. Please hold.

    These are nice, very capable furnaces. I had the exact same model for some time.

    Got the OK from SWMBO. Last potential hangup is floor space. We have plenty now but that might not always be the case, so I just have to double check. I don't expect any problems so look for a PM soon.

    No worries on that front, she'll never need to see it (just needed the $$$ approved). It's just that as the sole proprietor of the technical aspects of a small-ish "contract manufacturing" business, the line between "my machines" and "company machines" started thin and is getting ever thinner...
