Default RIMS complete with PICTURES

I have finished my RIMS project and will be running it on Monday if all goes to plan.

I used tri-clover fittings so it all comes apart to store and clean. Because all my fittings are tri-clover it can attach to any of my other fittings, so it is flexable. And best of all, it is made of stainless steel!

I wired my Ranco controller into a 120 V outlet on my Wagon of Spiritual Salvation, so, in addition to the heating element, I can use the controller for any variety of purposes.

This is a good day.

Saweet!! Looks like something Nasa would use!!!

I'll assume a buddy from department of transportation hooked you up with all that sign post material. But I'll be watching for increased accidents from your area due to missing traffic signs!!!

Why did I have to look at those pics?

(starts contemplating adding another project to the list...)

That looks like a nice, easy, uncomplicated rims setup. My jealousy abounds.

That looks pretty good, BP. Is the thermometer just sitting in the thermowell or do you have some kind of liquid or gel fill inside? I'm wondering about response time and external ambient temp influence.
