Our Lane plant drier failed through corrosion and I replaced the heater,
which had a bare filament, with one of those small heater/blowers that
has the elements sealed in a ceramic radiator. Legal, I don't know, but
it was certainly safer.

Subject: [Taxacom] Seeking a supplier of herbarium dryers

Does anyone know of a company in North America that manufactures
herbarium dryers with the heater included?  Lane stopped making them 6
months ago.

Alternatively, has anyone had success in (legally) retrofitting a
herbarium dryer with a new heater?
