I bought a toaster oven just for baking small painted parts. It has a skull & crossbones + "Not for food!" written on it. Gen appreciates it a lot - especially when she walks outside and sees wisps of smoke curling from the vents.snip
Meanwhile, on the thread drift avoiding trouble when “she” comes home, my best was being caught with the oven emitting noxious fumes on the bake setting. Was I in trouble when “she” discovered a Ducati crankcase inside! My reasonable justification of preparation to shrink fit a new bearing fell on deaf ears :nerd:
Break in methods are almost as arguable as oil threads.Throttle calibration: I followed the by-the-book conservative break-in recommendation of limiting throttle opening to 1/3. There's not much else to go by without a tachometer so I marked the throttle at 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and Full open, as shown. After break-in this also helps with fuel economy unless you consider the throttle as a switch with only two settings - off and full bore. No need for a scale then!
