A couple of us built one at The Hacktory before we started Hive76. We
used http://www.tk560.com/vactable4.html as our template. It worked
A-OK, but didn't get much use.  Getting the heat balanced well across
the working area was tough. We had to juggled resistance and coil size
a lot.

The initial build was quick, but the tweaking took about as long to do
as the rough build was.

hack on,
