we will need a heat-tolerant circulation fan, although i wonder if 
"convection" ovens have special magic like airflow patterns in addition to 
magic nonmelting fans.  I already have the thermocouple and controller.

i think i saw the toaster oven that lived with the oscilloscopes and test 
equipment disassembled and left for dead.  unfortunately we have zero 
posted guiedlines about what not to take apart at all, and what should 
only be taken apart if you're going to actually DO SOMETHING with it 
instead of just leaving a mess.

and i think we should start having such posted guidelines.
