Dear Ghod, Stefan, get rid of that oven!!! You most defdinitely do not
want a malfunctioning microwave anywhere near you- the microwaves can
cook you as well as a piece of food, if the insulation is compromised.

As far as what a home microwave can do, some people are using them as
mini foundries, or experimenting wiyth making mokume gane.



Get rid of that thing, and get up off 100 bucks or so for a new one.
