Default Chest Freezer Temperature Controller Suggestions

Hello everyone,

I've built a kegerator out of a chest freezer and the last key is a temperature controller. I originally wanted to use a Love TSX-10140 as the project I'm using as a guide uses this, but I can't find one anywhere. I see the STC1000 is very cheap and seems popular but I just don't think I can stand having the display in Celsius. Does anyone have suggestions for other temperature controllers or where I can actually buy the Love TSX-10140?

Thanks!

Here's some pics of the buildup

I use an STC-1000 for my fermentation chamber and it works great. Celsius is not much of a hassle, but I noticed this on eBay ... Looks like a Fahrenheit version of the STC-1000.

That's a single stage thermostat. It can be set for either heating or cooling, not both.

I just taped a conversion chart on the back of the enclosure for my STC-1000
