Thread: Need new element for a Jim Stewart shotmaker

  1. #1

    Need new element for a Jim Stewart shotmaker

    This might be a long shot but the element gave out on my shot maker after 15 years of use.

    Does anybody know of a source for replacing the element in his 220V shot maker?


    Any help would be much appreciated. Winshooter

    You may want to reach out to the Oasis Shotmaker folks. Their design looks incredibly similar to the James Stewart unit, and I'd be reasonably confident the electric element should fit with little to no fiddling.

    a lot of stove elements can be bent to the needed shape but you must use a brand new never energized one, once they have been heated they cant be bent
    if you are ever being chased by a taxidermist, don't play dead

    You're genius! After reading this I fully dismantled the unit and sure enough that's all it is, a 1250W stove element.

    Thankyou very much, I will be on my way to the appliance stove tomorrow. Hopefully it turns out to be this simple.

    If you did not have enough heat I would upgrade to a 1500 watt element.

    A 6" 1250W sounds like a 3 turn element. 4 turn is 1500W. Lowe's or Home Depot.
