This is my Hot Hide Gluepot I realize it looks as if it was designed by Heath-Robinson (the British equivalent of Rube Golberg I believe). When I made it I was looking for an electric thermostatically controlled water heater, but they were very expensive. Then my eye fell on an old iron my wife had discarded, it even had a thermostat. As you can see in Photo. 3 it is now falling apart but it still works and was free.

Your set up gives a better feel for the process… a real shop set up.
The hot pot double boiler looks like a kitchen gadget… and I’m not apt to make glue in my wife’s domain….

thanks for sharing…

Ah, Gerard only a Scotsman could come up with a solution like that! Well done. Your glue will be kept hot and there won’t be any wrinkles in the bottom of your pot.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Very Nice! If you truely want to make it a Rube Goldburg contraption, you somehow need to incorporate a bowling ball and a monkey into the design.
