    Default My new/old Johnson heat treating oven

    I bought this on Ebay. It was about 90 miles away. 2 1/2 hours through the Ozarks. We just got home & boy it was a nerve wracking rride! Worried it would tip over while going up down & around through our hilly country.
    But all went well. Now It goes in the shop for the winter, so I can spruce it up & learn how to use it. Also need to decide where to set it up.

    Plan on start'n your own shoeing business Brad? Just don't pull a Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs and look into the view hole while yer light'n it , I shake my head every time I see that one.

    Looks cool though. Wished I had a place big enough for all the machinery you have. My 2 car is packed and I'm not done yet. Oh well, I know who to go to for a custom knife now...hint, hint.

    I have a feeling this will use more propane than my BBQ grill.
    It says 180,000 BTU per hour of LP. Whatever that means. I better get a BIG tank!

    Although, the title did make me think pr0n, just a bit!

    Congrats, that's a serious investment in heat.

    The man from Johnson answered my Email the same day. He advised me to send him pictures & all the numbers off the oven & control unit. He would then be glad to send me the correct manual. I'll know more then about just what all it will do.
    I'll sure be back to this fellows used machinery graveyard. It was as much fun as a good ol U-pull it auto boneyard. All kinds of cool heavy duty machinery at cheapo prices. I'm going back for a welder, air compressor & maybe a big heavy duty wood ( 1500 lbs.) lathe he has for $250.00. he'll hook anything up & let you try itout,. Even three phase.

    The wood lathe only has a 3 foot bed. It's just a heavy duty American Made Industrial lathe. A three horse motor when most home units are like 1/3rd hp.
    I can't yet think of why I need one. But Iknow there have been times when I wished I had one. I did not see migs, but I was in a hurry to beat the snow & freezing rain. He moves a LOT of equipt & is way out in the boonies near Paragould Arkansas.
