I bought the relays from ebay store ElectricParts because they have the covers.

Of course I bought my Auber PIDs and Timer from Auber. I also got the illuminated maintained push button 22MM switches from them because they had a great price and shipping was minimal.

wait.. so you bought the SSRs from jamesbondtb or the elec repl parts store? the one on the jamesbondtb site are less than half the price and come with the heat sinks, i dont think the other one specifies about the heat sinks. The Jamesbondtb ships from China and that makes me leery so thats why I ask

Subscribed. I'm at about the same stride with you. Even got my timer from the same eBayer seller. Got my contactors from HVACUS though, on eBay. An american seller, I literally got them 2 days later for $9.75 with free shipping. Keep at it man! And what sort of build is this? 3 vessel I presume, one or two tier?

Sweet maybe we'll have questions we can answer for each other.

I'm a little behind you guys but I've been making my parts list for the same type of setup. Just trying to get my main power supply figured out.

Are you switching between elements or wiring them separately to use at the same time?

eBrutus2.0; I'm shooting for all hard plumbing and going to run two PWMs in parallel with the PIDs to allow for manual modification of the "P" value while I am standing over the contraption. The whole thing will be setup so that I can heat both vessels at the same time, if I wish, and will suck power from one 30a 240v and another 20a 120v supply.
