Hi. I don 't have the gear to do a temp log, but checking it visually
with a Taylor thermometer stuck in the side of it it stays steady, at
least no more than 2 degrees F variation. I started with one of their
older four tray models and moved up to the 9 tray #3900 for my last
large project. Beautifully "baked" 270 reels of 1980s radio masters,
only two of which did not respond but stayed sticky no matter what.
It will also do 2" and 14" diameter reels nicely.

Have you run a long-term temperature log on this? I did on the
Snackmaster and it was about +/- 1°C for several hours (not counting
It's also nice that the top-of-the-line Excalibur has a timer as well
as a thermostat.
