I bought a 12" x 6" x .5" piece of aluminum from mcmasters since aluminum is
steel in that size from them. Anyway, it shows up today and I have it sitting
kitchen counter where I opened the shipping box.
A bit later I reach into the fridge to get the pork loin I pulled from the
earlier. It was a bit late in the day so it was still frozen.
Thinking about how good a thermal conductor aluminum is, I laid the loin on the
aluminum. Darn, that works pretty good. For a second check, I got a fully
and put it on the plate. Thawed about 1/4" in less than a hour.
The aluminum will not be staying in the kitchen since it is destined to be a
plate for my Lee Loadmaster so I can mount it to my Bridgeport table and use
that for a
bench. The machine room is the only part of my garage that is heated. I'll
and tap bolt patterns for my Lyman Turret and Lyman LubeSizer.
