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?
