I just bought a toaster oven at a thrift store for $2.99.  I tested it before I paid for it.  All elements worked.  I see some melting beads coming as soon as I can get to a store!

I think Craftster is going to be my undoing.  Rule #1.. housework first, crafting later.  (bribing my inner child... yes, that's what I am doing)

I just got done using my dad's drill press to make a hole in a meled bead piece- it worked quite well and after that I used a blo torch to smooth the edges.

You can see the whole process of melting beads in silicone baking pans here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136609.0

my first melting bead experiment in is the oven. i warned the neighbors before hand that there would be odd smells, but that everything was fine. yet both families have stopped by at least 2 times each now, just 'making sure everything was undercontrol' and the little kids that are out side keep saying that something is on fire.

to make this a thousand times better, my husband is a firefighter. and the guys at the firehall have called already, just to see whats going on, as they've had complaints of odd smells coming from our house.

i don't care though because everything i have seen so far is grogeous! and i want some for me!

living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

Sweets:
well they all know my husband is home, so they figured they call and if they coulnd't get ahold of us, then they'd pile into the truck and come investigate. and they also know that if we did have a fire or something, they would be the first one i'd call in a panic. though it usually happens when the hubby is at work.
