How long to packtite wood furniture - not upholstered?(2 posts)
I have a few wooden tables and mirror with a thick wooden frame (1 1/2") I am in the process of packtiting. I'm just wondering how long to packtite them, since I can't measure the temperature in the teeny teeny cracks MY FRIENDS would probably like to use/have used as a wonderful thygmotactic harborage playland. Both pieces of furniture are antiques, so if I can avoid breaking them that would be great. If not, no prob, goodbye tables and mirror, be free.
I opted not to rent a dark metal cargo van, park it in the sun and watch movies all day with just the furniture inside since there were strong warnings on this site against that, stating you'd need to understand thermo-conductivity. I keep asking google to explain thermo-conductivity in wood, but you know how google can be. Especially if you only vaguely understand what you're searching.
Using the Million Dollar heat treatment option in NYC , I believe you drop the furniture off overnight, so my question is, do I need to cook this stuff overnight? I'm laying the sensor on the wood and it is already at 140 degrees after an hour.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm nearing the end of my ordeal. I hope you all are too.
I would wait for advice from David James, the inventor, or one of the pros who uses them extensively, like David Cain.
