producing steam for bending wood
Greetings fellow woodworkers
I am working on a set of chairs in the Arts and Crafts style and I have to bend the back rest rails. I am using kiln-dried quartersawn white oak. My first problem is one of supply - I can't find a unit to produce steam. The old kettles we used to make coffee with are no longer in production and the new ones shut off as soon as they hit 212 degrees. I have an old wallpaper steamer but its corroded inside. I would welcome any suggestions for a homemade rig.
