It's really convenient to have the Heating Blanket Controller built-into your Side Bender. We originally designed this concept and now are re-introducing it to our ever-growing audience of instrument builders.
Our GenOne Temperature Controller Kit for Heated Side Benders is now available for both our guitar and ukulele benders. We supply all the electronics, controller, SSR, thermocouple wire, wire connectors and power cord for this great addition to your bender.
If you purchased our Heated Guitar Bender Plans or our Heated Ukulele Bender Plans, the back plate for the bender is already drawn to accept the parts included within this kit.
All you have to supply is the plywood parts and heating blanket. The hardware kit will allow you to complete the bender and get you up and operating with bending even the most delicate tonewood.
The specs below detail all the parts you will receive for your kit.
