Whether your project is big or small and you're using either glue or wax, we have just what you need. You can use the small 4" skillet for quick and easy projects and brushwork with wax (not deep enough for dipping tjantings) or if you're a beginner this one is perfect for experimenting. We also have a 7" skillet with a temperature control knob for larger more complex projects that require precision, and is also deeper.
The MS4 has a constant temperature setting of 350°F**
MS7 temperature settings:
Setting 1 is a warm setting
Setting 2 heats to . 230°F
Setting 3 heats to approx. 320°F
Setting 4 heats to approx. 356°F
Setting 5 heats to approx. 410°F
**IMPORTANT: Always keep in mind with these skillets that wax melts at much lower temperatures than these pots go, and starts smoking if you get it too hot. You never want to be breathing wax fumes and NEVER want it to get to smoking. We highly recommend a wax thermometer like below to keep track of your temperature, and when the wax is 10 degrees or so below smoking, turn the skillet off!!! Then if the wax gets too cool, just turn it back on again. No one in America so far has come up with a perfect wax pot. If you are in production and use a lot of wax, nothing beats an electric frying pan, so you can set exactly the temperature you want, and don't have to plug and unplug. ALWAYS work with melted waxes in a well ventilated area!
PRO Tip: To keep your tools from sliding into the wax with all flat melting pans, wrap a bunch of masking tape, several layers on top of itself, on the handles rather high up, depending on where you like to grip the tool, and that will hold up on the lip of the pan and keep the tools from sliding in, both brushes and tjantings.
