Special electrical appliance for bending violin or mandolin sides.
With this appliance the temperature is directly measured by a sensor at the heating block.
We use a specially shaped hollow body casted from brass which distributes and gives away the heat evenly. Its smooth surface makes the wood slide easily. The heating block is mounted on a sturdy non-flammable metal case with cooling openings which is equipped with a special heat-resistant lacquer coating to reliably prevent a loss of colour onto the wood. An integrated automatic security switch prevents accidents caused by accidential overheating.
The extremely robust appliance can be safely fixed in a vice or over clamps at the workbench.
Thermostat controlled with temperature regulator, warning light and overheat fuse, incl. bending strap and 2 m wire cable. The adaptor G 95800 (accessory) will adapt the appliance to almost every countrys plug configuration. (The design is due to current security VDE-guidelines)
Material: On a steel case sits a brass heating block which distributes the heat equally
Technical Details: 110 V , temperature at the brass heating block about 265°C (509° F), height 70 mm (2.75").
