Rigged this up at work this week.A paint curing lamp and some plywood Toasty warm and dry socks/shoes when it's time to head home. Notice the welding clamp/sock holder. Kinda stinky once it gets cookin', but not as bad as my spitty, salty facemask.
that thing looks massive, or you have damn small feet.
Italian Steel would like to commission 7 of those for tanning purposes. That clamp looks like it could solve our inner thigh tanning problem.

seems like a lot of stuff/electricity to dry some socks and shoes. I would just roll up a small electric heating pad to carry around with me.
what is it with italian steel lately?

Shoes are size 11
A heating pad?
The point is that this heat lamp is something I use at work anyway, and is readily available.
Anyways, I thought it was funny.
I don't even know what to say about the inner thigh tanning prob, but at least someone was trying. :)
I think that is the coolest thing ever. How fast do your shoes dry?
My method is I jam a ton of newspaper into them and close em up
then I put them under my fridge or near a vent. I'll change the
newspaper once or twice or if I need them dry faster I sit there
with a hair dryer. I own this dryer just for drying my shoes
not for drying hair.
Rigged this up at work this week.
Whatever works. I have an old fashion radiator and can put my very damp swimming gear on top and have it dry overnight. I've also used it for shoes; but I use the residual heat after I turn off the steam valve. If there is any adhesive in your shoes, too much heat can make a mess. The IR lamp seems a kinder, gentler method.
