Terry, that will be easier with a stand to hold it up. It's not tiny and we really need it to be testing on a flat surface with a T-shirt for accuracy. If you do a search on Youtube for heat lamps you will mostly find video logs of fires started with these babies. So, I'm very optimistic we can get some good heat out of 12 of them! I decided to replace the lamp switch with a 1000 watt dimmer. It has an off an on switch as well which will allow me to cut half the lights off and to control the temperature a bit. The timer's countdown feature will allow me to set a time for the unit to shut off so I don't burn the Ts while I'm busy.

Thanks,
