I was pretty sure there'd be another ringer here!! You may well not need rope warmers (or driers) - but we proudly hold the prize for "The Coldest Ringing Chamber in Yorkshire"!I ring too - we don’t have rope heaters though.
All I meant there is to fit the resistors vertically up the enclosure. I just noticed it's wooden, so it would have to be replaced by a proper fire enclosure. Still reasonably easy to do, but I see you bought a ceramic heater.... vertical array ... Lost me there, I am afraid.
