Heat molding w/o getting burned?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a new pair of Garmont Prophet telemark boots that I need heat mold.  Garmont's instructions say to heat the liners at 250 degrees for 15 minutes in a convection oven, then insert in shells and proceed.  I am planning to use a precision heat gun (I can dial in exact air temps) and a tube setup to shoot 250 degree air into the boot, heating the liners while still in the boot shells so I don't have to handle them.  All that is fine and similar to what most shops do, but I am worried about getting burned - 250 degrees is REALLY f'n hot, and I wear very thin socks.  How can I do a heat mold procedure with those kind of temps without burning my feet?

heat the liners slowly, with light heat, adn you should be fine.

 

I think this site has home nolding instructions?  or intuition site might too?
