Making progress!! Cutting the holes for the PIDs was rough just because they have so little wiggle room for error. Need to cut in the SSRs and a 120v outlet I'm mounting, then sand, paint, and wiring. I haven't figures out what I'm doing for the backlight display yet so that will wait.

Progress. SWMBO isn't too fond of having no dining room table, but it's cold in the garage!

Progress on the wiring is slow. Cut wire, crimp ring, solder, install. I'll focus on cleaning up the routing when it's done.

So here's a picture to help - if I take a reading from 24 to black (Hot A), with the switch not depressed (23/24 is NO, so no power), I get a voltage reading. If I pull the neutral from the coil of the contactor, I get no voltage reading. Is this normal, or is there a problem with my contactors?
