Why the change of heart on the elements? Previously it was 1 SSR per element.
Because you're selling it? Would you still go with one if it was your personal rig?

No, because I dont plan to have any physical switches, like on my old rig. Those switches are what made it possible to control current on BOTH legs to the element. Regardless of who owns it, both legs need to be cut when it is OFF. IT was that way on my old system, it will be this way on this one.

Man, that thing is sweet, and I am green with envy. I laid awake last night thinking about what gear I can sell to get a single blichmann. Those things are the balls.
I know, it wont work at all... it will be a shiney sculpture though. Nothing I make ever works!

They are 'spensive, but they really are nice, since they are designed to do what we are doing. They arent modified chili pots

Nice idea on getting a single build thread. I was loosing track of all the others... I kinda guess you were doing a brutus 20-alike. You gonna use solenoids or something for liquid control? I suppose, however, you only have one liquid path. Just working it out in my head

Funny thing is, they're made in West Lafayette. I went to Purdue and was totally oblivious to this!
