I turn my oven on to 250 & then turn it off when it gets warm. After my caps are coated & bubble free I put them in. I usually make mine at night & leave them there until the am. You have to be careful because if it is too hot when you put them in you can get little burn spots in the resin.
I have never tried this any hotter but would imagine that you could go lower & be fine. I have also only done this with ET lite & no other resin or sealers.

Shelley, I have to agree with you on this one--I have the same punch, and it works perfectly for bottlecaps!

I second that! - after making bottle caps for over 5 years now I have tried every single punch out there and this is by far the best, plus this is the only one with a lifetime warranty for when it breaks - I have sent several back and Fiskers just sends me a new one.
