  • Running costs

    Hello All

    dont laugh!!!

    Has anybody been bored enough to work out the running costs of their pyro machine - on the speck it says that my Peter Childs power consumption is 30watts

    i went on a website where you can work out the running costs of appliances by putting in the wattage, pence per kilowatt and hours used and it said it cost about 60p for 100 hours - that cant be right can it? if so thats great

    yeah... ok ....Im obsessed...

    cheers N

    I've no idea unfortunately, but here's another calculator to double-check your figures with:

      Your'e not obsessed at all!!

      All these costs have an add on to the overall cost of producing your items and must be borne in the selling price.

      Sorry I can't help though

        In a hundred hours at 30 watts that's 3 units of electricity - depending on which tariff and standing charge you're on it could be less than 60p.

          Thats great - so the cost are really very small - it just crossed my mind that it could be costing a small fortune - what with the rising cost of living and the cost to the environment etc....

            After Double checking it seems on my Tarriff it will cost me 51p for 100 hours - and im guessing that 30 watts is what it consumes at full blast - dial setting 10 - Bargain

              For comparison - if you boil your kettle for a cuppa once an hour you'll be using around the same amount of electricity as your pyrography machine.

                so you can boil your kettle 100 times for 50p - i thought it was more expencive than that.... time for a cuppa in that case !!!!!
