    Not sure if that one will be large enough for you and fast enough. However, the plans are free.

    I made a solar wax melter from and old cooler that's missing its lid and a piece of glass from an old storm door. Bought a baking pan that I had to bend a little to make fit but it works and cost less than $5. I set one end on a concrete block for the angle and use one of those disposable tupperware type containers to catch the wax. Works great and I have less than $10 invested in it. Have always wanted to build a cadillac wax melter but mine works, works great in fact, and I cannot justify the expense of time and money to build another.
    When you stop learning you're dead.
