What a beautiful shot! Sometimes sacrifices must be made haha.

If you dont mind me making a small suggestion, I would try using an abrasion resistant polycarbonate infront of your lens because its the least likely to scratch or pit from debris. You can get just basic polycarb for like $5 so you could also just buy 10 and use them as disposable parts. It would save you a lot of money in the long run, and polycarb is the least likely to warp your image and if you get the thin stuff (under 0.5") it will have minimal effect on your light.

As for dew, you really just need to make sure youre above the dew point. If you have a power source, I would just buy a heat gun and point it at the edge of the poly carbonate, about a foot away. This way air is traveling along the surface of the polycarb and the lens. This would whisk away anything on them, heat them above the dew point preventing any of it, and wouldnt blow any dust in the way.

Anyway, great to read these detailed accounts from first hand photographers. Than you so much for sharing!

Genesis GHG1500A Dual Temperature Heat Gun Kit with Four Metal Nozzle Attachments

This is the one I got, for less than $20. Great buy.

You wanna sear your steaks with a heat gun? I've melted butter and the like with one, I've even heated up food out of the fridge with one, so it should work. This is the one I used, on the highest setting. When I read the output temp with a thermometer it showed about 550 degrees F.

Good question, and it pains me a bit that I have a small box of unused tools that were purchased when I began. I'm sure I missed a few things, but here you go:

u/ZachMatthews · 2 pointsr/flyfishing

Easy fix. Anyone saying to cut the loop off has never actually strength tested these loops.

Watch the end of this video.

To fix your loop instead of cutting it off, buy polyolefin tubing. 3-5mm should be about right.

Next, buy a heat gun.

Cut a short length of tubing, slide it over the end of your line, and waft the heat gun so the tubing shrinks and the line inside it liquefies but does not burn. Let it cool, then peel the heat shrink back off (use a pair of tying scissors to snip it and get it started so you can peel it).

It'll be good as new. You can also cut that one off and make another if you want a new loop. Fly lines have about 2 feet of level tip material to allow for this kind of cutting.

No knot is as strong as a welded loop. Welded loops were about 3X stronger on average than every knot I tested, sometimes more. Here is my original thread on the tests I did.

Here are the results of my strength tests for the Fly Rod & Reel article:

Knot Break Strength - Tested to failure with Boga Grip using 20 lbs. monofilament

|Knot | Test 1 | Test 2|
|Nail Knot (5 Turns) | 10 lbs. | 10 lbs.|
|Albright Knot (5 Turns) | 12 lbs. | 12 lbs.|
|Doubled-Line Nail Knot| (6 Turns) 8 lbs. | 10 lbs.|
|Double Surgeon’s Knot | (20 lb. to 20 lb.) 14 lbs. | 18 lbs.|
|Castwell Knot | 13 lbs. | 12 lbs.|
|Welded Loop | 20 lbs. X 3 attempts (see video)|

u/MyMostGuardedSecret · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

I highly recommend spending a bit of money to get an actual heat gun, as opposed to a hairdryer. They're not that expensive (here's the one I have for $19), and they blow MUCH hotter than hair dryers. The advantage is that you can just sweep them across the model and the strings will basically vanish before your eyes. With a hairdryer you usually have to hold it in place for a second which can result in the warping

Heat guns are cheap.

I think they might even be cheaper at Home Depot.

u/priestwithknives · 2 pointsr/CR10

Edited a profile to get your settings about right, should help.

Also heat guns eat up strings, just use quick passes once the gun is up to temp, if you linger on a miniature for more than 2 seconds you'll probably start to get deformations.

u/MarcusDohrelius · 2 pointsr/gundeals

For anyone reading this, a standard heat gun has a lot of uses, but is the great for efficiently cleaning the stock of cosmoline.

u/Sztheday · 1 pointr/candlemaking

This is the one I have. Have used it several times to fix tops and wet spots and it works great!

u/wildjokers · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

By esteps I mean extruder steps. The number of steps the stepper motor has to turn to push out 1 mm of filament. Generally you can calibrate this by telling it to extrude 100 mm of filament and measuring how much it actually extruded. I don't know specifics of your printer but you should be able to find information about your specific printer indicating if that is something most people do. Here is the procedure for a different printer, it will give you some idea what to look for for yours:

To clear out a potential clog take off your nozzle and hold it in front of a heat gun on high with pliers. The filament will pretty much evaporate away. Can use tiny nozzle cleaning drill bits, you can get on amazon or aliexpress, to clean out any that doesn't evaporate.

If you don't have a heat gun you can get them for $10-$20 at Harbor Freight or Amazon. This is the one I bought and it works well (looks like it has went up in price since I bought it though):

> its thicker than I remember

How old is the nozzle? Maybe it is worn and the hole is now bigger than 0.4mm? (brass nozzles are consumables if that is what you are using)

u/jaksblaks · 1 pointr/roasting

Yes heat guns arent designed for the high heat of roasting. I found this one to be pretty good. The plastic sheath falls off though. I keep a spare and alternate them when back to back roasting. I do a lb at a time in a breach machine. Takes 12-15min or so depending on beans.

u/rr_power_granger · 1 pointr/roasting

Hi all, my goal is to construct a fluid bed roaster capable of roasting a half-pound of coffee per go.

For the motor, I'm looking at this electric leaf blower, and for the heating element, I'm looking to dissect this heat gun.

I'll use a pyrex baking tube, and a cocktail shaker to cap it off at the base. And then some machining magic to couple it to the mounting pipe.

Does it seem like this will get hot enough to roast a 1/2 pound?

I'm trying to upgrade from my current popper setup which can roast a max of 60 grams at a time (and that's with me constantly agitating with a shish kabob stick).

Edit: One possible improvement could be increasing the wattage of the heater to 2000W. Does anyone have a recommendation for a really cheap blower (or just the element itself)? Or would this water heater element work?

If I reclaim the air from the exhaust back into the pump, would this allow a 1500W heater to work?

u/the_river_nihil · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

You use, like, a big heat gun on the whole board all at once?

What's the failure rate of the scrap parts? I'd think the heating process would have to be more delicate than that, but maybe not.

Hand vise: IRWINQUICK-GRIPOne-Handed Bar Clamp, Heavy-Duty, 6", 1964711

Steel plates: Round Hot Rolled Steel Plate 1/4" x 4" Diameter Circle (Pack of 2!)

Epoxy: J-B Weld 8297 HighHeat 550 Degree Epoxy Putty Stick - 2 oz.

And turns out my stove is way easier to heat up the steel plates. But if you're interested in a heat gun I bought this one: Genesis GHG1500A Dual Temperature Heat Gun Kit, Grey

The following are the parts I'll be purchasing for this build. I think I've covered everything, but as this will be my first custom loop if someone could give it the once over and make sure I'm not forgetting something it would be GREATLY appreciated!
