What about maing a basic enviro chamber for heat testing. Insulate or
replace the inner cavity liner. Fit temp display in place of the led
display. Might be good for ambient to say 80 deg C. Use a flood lamp as the
heat source, dimmer control to set the temp and a small fan to distribute
the heat more evenly.
