The rest of this page focuses on simply repackaging a quartz heater to make your own IPR. I considered making a ‘mother of all IPRs’ by using the Lakewood heater shown above. It has 17″ long quartz rods. I bet you could really chug along with a bad boy like that. I decided I like my QT1, and that I would sacrifice our other Lakewood quartz heater, the quartz rod length was more in keeping with commercial IPR size.
