The Earlex Steam Generator with Sam Hamory

We live in a 3-D world, so our wood projects need to share the same idea. Bending wood is not a new concept, but Earlex makes it easier for you to attain the shapes in your wood projects that you desire.  To help assist you with perfect flowing designs is the new Earlex Steam Generator.  The electric unit is compact, light weight, has thermal protection, and even includes instructions on how you can build your own steam box!  Great for any projects like boating, furniture, instruments, and is only limited to what your imagination can come up with!


Product Information:

Use the power of steam with the Earlex Steam Generator to create new furniture designs and woodworking projects with bending wood. The compact electric steamer is much safer than open burner type systems, with 2 thermal protectors.  The 1.3 gallon tank takes only 23 minutes to steam up and will provide 137 minutes of steaming time–plenty of steam for a small to medium size steam box.  Just 8″ x 12″ in size, this steam generator is as portable as it gets.

Here are just a few items that you can make using the Earlex Steam Generator and a steam box.

    Wish I had known about this earlier when I made steam bend banded trivets. The old tea kettle and hot plate were a nuisance to setup. Reply

    Does this steam generator ever go on sale? How much does it cost for shipping? I live in Muncie, Indiana and would like to know if there is anyone local to me that I could purchase one. Thanks and I hope we can connect and make a sale Reply

      Special discount pricing is generated by Earlex and we do not control when that may or may not happen. Shipping cost for this item to Muncie would be $9.91. The Woodcraft store in Indianapolis is about an hour from you. Reply
