Take back control and tame your oven with my new Oven Tamer Precision Temperature Controller!  Yeah, I know, it is a little pricey but the benefits will make it more than pay for itself in the long run!  Not only does the Oven Tamer make setting and switching temperatures with precision super easy, it will also allow you to cure your Cactus Juice stabilized blanks at a lower temperature which will reduce bleed out and make a better finished product!

The Oven Tamer uses precision PID control to maintain the temperature within 1°F +/- of the set point which will allow you to cure your blanks at 180° F rather than the normal recommended 200° F.  This lower temperature will reduce the bleed out of your Cactus Juice and keep more resin in the blank where you want it!  The large digital shows you both your set point and the temperature inside the oven at a glance and maintains that temperature with precision.  The included alligator clip temperature sensor makes it easy to move the Oven Tamer from one oven to another if you use more than one oven. 

All Oven Tamers are assembled in my shop in Texas by me personally from high quality components and a very high quality enclosure box made by me.  I do all of the wiring, CNC work to make the face and back plate, and all of the testing.  Your Oven Tamer will be calibrated before you receive against a NIST reference thermometer to insure its accuracy.  These are heavy duty and made to last as well as look really nice.  They are not made for me by some "toss it together" electrical fab shop overseas.  The internal components are of foreign origin but I try to use as much USA made components as reasonably possible.  I tried sourcing 100% US made components but due to their cost, the sales price would need to be well over $500 unfortunately.


  • Easy to set and change temperature with digital display-no more guessing or messing with an oven thermometer!
  • Precise oven control with an accuracy of 0.2%
  • Alligator clip type K thermocouple (temperature probe) to easily move the controller between multiple ovens
  • One push auto tuning PID controller to automatically program the controller for your specific oven parameters
  • Lower cure temperature possible for your Cactus Juice stabilized blanks to reduce bleed out
  • Solid State Relay for silent operation and longevity


  • Oven Tamer Precision Temperature Controller with PID controller, power switch, 125v power cord socket (similar to computer power socket), thermocouple socket, and 125v three prong power outlet
  • 5' long type K alligator clip thermocouple with plug
  • 3' long 15AMP heavy duty 3 prong power cord


Input Voltage:  125v AC
Output Voltage:  125v AC
Output Current:  15 AMP Maximum
Thermocouple Temperature Range: -22° F to 925° F (Higher temps are obtainable with different thermocouples, contact me for details)

Please note:  The Oven Tamer may not work on a digital toaster oven.  To test if it will work, set the temperature on your oven to any temperature you want and unplug it from the wall and then plug it back in.  If the oven resets to 0 or any other temperature than what it was set to before being unplugged, it will NOT work.

Assembled in USA from domestic and foreign components

A special thank you to my friend Steve Pritchard who graciously helped me with the basic concept and wiring diagram!


I make all of my products myself personally and do not outsource or have them made for me in China. Quality and attention to detail is the most important thing to me and I refuse to cut corners to get stuff out the door quickly. As a result, I frequently have a waiting list for some items. When you place your order and it includes one of those items, you will be Pre-Ordering that item and adding yourself to my waiting list. I do not split ship orders so if you want part of the order that includes in stock items to ship right away, please place a separate order. When I am ready to complete your Pre-Order, my system will send you an e-mail with a copy of the order and a link to make payment with your credit card or PayPal. Once your order has been paid in full, production of that item will begin with shipping to follow as quickly as possible, usually within a week to 10 days or less.

The current ESTIMATED lead time is stated above. This is an estimate only and in no way a guarantee of delivery time. It is nearly impossible for me to predict how production will go from week to week so it could be longer or shorter. I am the only one who will be building your item and all it takes is one day out of the shop due to illness or taking a day off to spend with my family to completely mess up my schedule. If you are in a bind and need it quickly, I may be able to accommodate your needs on a case by case basis. Please contact me via telephone or e-mail to discuss as I will NOT see any notes in the comments section until I am ready to actually work on your order which will be too late!

I DO NOT send updates on the status of your order as that would be counter productive and massively time consuming!
Please don't e-mail before the estimated lead time has passed to ask where your order is. I don't mean to be rude but I will not be able to reply to such e-mails.

If, at any time, you get tired of waiting for me and want to cancel your Pre-Order, just let me know. I very much appreciate your business and value you as a customer. Rest assured, I will be working diligently to get your order completed in the shortest time frame without cutting corners.  I appreciate your patience!
