AbstractAn apparatus for heat treating the surface of a body includes an infrared heat source carried on a stand. A circuit controls the energization of the lamp. The circuit includes a heat detector for detecting a targeted area temperature. The apparatus includes a sighting mechanism to permit an operator to accurately sight the heat detector against the surface to be heat treated.
