'Do you have any suggestions about how to keep the water bath for my water stones from freezing in my shop during cold nights? I heat the shop only when I am working, so it gets below freezing some nights.
I have brought the stones indoors for now, but this is very inconvenient.I have thought about adding some alcohol to the water, but I'm not sure how this will affect the stones.They are King Ice Bear stones (Japanese).
' Submitted by: Scott Bigler WWGOA Editor Response: Instead of adding alcohol, or even antifreeze to the water, try making a small heat cabinet in your shop.This can be done by putting an incandescent light bulb in a cabinet.
You'll be surprised how much affect this can have.(I used to hang a light bulb under the hood of a 1972 Ford Fairlane to help it start in the winter.) Start with a low wattage and make certain the bulb isn't touching anything.
You'll have to experiment to determine how many watts you need for the space you're keeping warm.A friend of mine uses a 60-watt bulb in an old refrigerator to keep his finishes warm.Thank you for your question.
