A number of years ago I fabricated PID controllers for some members lead pots. (I hope that they are all working . . . mine is.) I didn't do it to make a profit because I really did it just to sort of pay it forward for the many questions I may have from others. I'm thinking of doing that again but . . . I just can't do it anywhere near what I did previously. I also make a lubersizer heater for those with a Lyman #45, Lyman 450 or a RCBS lubersizer with a variable heat control ( basically a rheostat or it can be tied to a PID controller. It consists of a 3/4" x 4" x 4" aluminum flat bar with a 40W, 3/8" x 1 1/2" cartridge heater insrteted in it coupled with a junction box with a rheostat.  So . . . I'm just putting this out there to see if there is any interest.

If someone else had of done to me what I did to myself . . . I'd have killed him. Humility is an asset. Heh - heh.

Mine still works fine after almost 10 years. Still very grateful!

I've used wife's iron resting on the aluminum mounting plate. Lubramatic and lube can get too hot if not careful.

I use old blowdryers on low heat aimed at my sizer in winter as my loading area is  not heated well. 

"if it was easy we'd let women do it" don't tell my wife I said that!

I use a 150 W heat lamp.  No noise and I get light as well as some heat on my hands as a by product.

I mounted my lubrisizer on a 1/4" plate then put a magnetic Katz engine heater on that.  Plug it in for 30 minutes, unplug it and size/lube for most of an hour.

John, I use a 40W cartridge heater that I get from McMaster-Carr. Pricey but worth it.
