Main Question or Discussion Point
I am working on designing a heater to heat up the glue on a hockey stick to remove the blade. Typically this is done using a normal heat gun that can get the air up to 1000*F. My team is planning on having a metal piece that is U shaped to insert the hockey stick into to heat up the glue. We are planning on running ohmic wire on the back side of the metal piece, having it act as a heat sink, transferring the heat to the stick. I am looking for any advice on what style/ size of resistance wire and what type of metal to use to generate enough heat to the hockey stick.
