Further notes on the "LEM" UV Oven....
I've been using my home-made resin curing oven for a few days now and have found a few adjustments I can pass along- the cupboard shelf I used raises lights about 5"/12cm from the resin and that may reduce the speed of curing- similarly- the plastic cover on the ballast that makes the fixture look "attractive" affects the efficacy of the lights, so it should be removed. bare bulbs are best. Here's the LEM in action with a celluloid food container weighted with water acting as a riser. A wire rack from a long defunct toaster oven is the base for my glass sheet.
