Detailed Description

Earlex Steam Generator

Bending wood with steam opens up a new dimension for your furniture designs & woodworking projects. A few examples include arms and backs for Windsor chairs, as well as many bent components for wooden boats. Plans for low-cost homemade steam generators are available, but often involve combustible fuels and an open flame.
This compact electric steamer, developed from one designed for stripping wallpaper, remedies these safety concerns since the heating element runs on standard 120v current, far safer than an open burner. The unit has a small 8" x 12" footprint so you can set-up just about anywhere in your home or shop. Providing plenty of steam for a small to medium homemade steam box, our tests with this unit had it making steam in just 23 minutes & then heating up our homemade 6" diameter x 62" long PVC steam box (tube) to 212° in another 10 minutes. (For large steam boxes, you'll need 2 steamers to reach and maintain optimum temperature within the box.) The water reservoir holds 1.3 gallons (5 liters) and provides 130 minutes of steam time without refilling. Safety cut-out on heating element prevents overheating if water boils low. 12' double walled hose.

Comes with a brass fitting for connecting to your homemade steam box. (The threads on the fitting will tap into in a ½” hole in plywood, but drill a test hole in scrap material first to check for a good fit and adjust the hole diameter if needed.)
