To heat what is anybody's guess, but it's a U-shaped heating element, 8-3/8" x 2-5/8" x 1/4" dia with a 107 Ohm Resistance and rubber grommets above the 3/16" wide power terminals. When CJ heated it up to 120F, those grommets got gooey, so he says use lower voltage DC.
Turn It Off Before It Melts!
From Therm-O-Disc, this thermal cut-off switch is N/C (normally closed) by definition. (Thermal cut-offs are what keep your coffeepot from burning your house down.) This one shuts down between 221°F (105°C) and 248°F (120°C) and measures 5/8" dia x 9/16" thick, with (2) axial terminals.
This 120V 1385W J-shaped heating element hit 750 degrees before it scorched our test bench, so we turned it off before it burned the place down. Measures 8-1/4" long x 1-5/8" wide across the elements x 5/16" with 1/4" terminals past threaded ends. We believe these were made to live inside hot-water heaters. UL recognized.
Dry heat is for deserts. This handy little non-electronic humidifier is made to keep you from drying out in the living room this winter. It’s simple, really, just a 10” x 7” x 2-1/4” thick white plastic frame with little feet holding a hunk of open-cell foam that you soak with water and place on a register vent, radiator or in front of a baseboard heater. Presto, instant humidity.
