Repair blanket for Martin ’40’s-60s bridge plate, 120v, 19.5 watts
Our specially made 1/16" hard rubber heating blankets are made to heat thin wood pieces, like guitar sides and bindings, to the 300+°F necessary to bend them to the desired shape. These blankets can reach 500°F in just a minute or two, therefore, they must be used with either a timer or temperature controller to keep the blanket and/or the wood from burning up. These devices are absolutely necessary for safety in your shop. Our LMI Temperature Controller (part #TC120 or TC220) and timer (part #DT) are highly recommended for use with these blankets and are required for us to honor a warranty.
Our repair heating blankets are designed to evenly heat the wood and loosen the glue joint for easy removal or repositioning. The blankets are manufactured for professional, durable, daily use including reinforced leads.
These blankets can be dangerous if used incorrectly. Always make sure the blanket has something to transfer its heat
All heating blanket warranties are 6 months from the date of purchase.
Warranties will not be honored for heating blankets that are used without a controller.
This blanket is meant to be used on a 120v 60hz system like that in the USA.
LMI auto-tunes every temperature controller at 300 degrees Fahrenheit with a custom test rig and a full-sized guitar blanket (SPBL8). The controller is ready to use as delivered. For our bending machine setup, both the smaller waist blanket and the larger main blanket have similar power/heat responses so changing between either does not require a re-tuning.
If you are using a much smaller blanket, like a bridge repair blanket at 1/10 of the wattage of the full-sized blanket, auto-tuning would be advised. To auto-tune your temperature controller, see the instructions that were included with it or view the instructions in the product attachments on the temperature controller page.
