I'v all ready found two great additions to my brewery I though I could not afford by looking through this thread. Digital flow meter $69, and three way valvs 3 for 130 shipped! Thanks guys.
I have that flow valve and meter. I think I paid $14 for the set. Honestly. Shipping took more than a month though!

Really, who did you buy it from? I just got a UPS shipping notification but it might be for the three way valves I just ordered, but I can't tell just yet.

how do you like the meter...Don't tell me it sucks and was not worth $14...

Worked fine, but I hardly looked at it long enough to see that it worked when I blew through the sensor. I bought a bunch of different flow sensor. I didn't need the meter, actually (I do my own electronics). I'll play with it again tomorrow and report back. I'll also look up where I bought it from. I was looking to replace a very expensive flow sensor that I use on something.

Thanks for posting the 3-way ball valves. What's the difference in the type T and L?

The L type has an L drilled in to the Ball, where the T has a T. The T ball valve will allow the flow to be selected to go 90º or straight through from the source. where the L you can only select the flow to go 90º from its source.

I found another source for huge new aluminum heatsinks on evil-bay...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/11-5-W-x-3-L...#ht_724wt_1140


Advertised size was...

11.5"L x 3"W with fin height of 2.3"

I noticed in the description that they can cut to order, so I had them make it 5" wide for extra cooling capacity! They were able to black anodize it for $3 more! Sheez... you can't beat that.

This sucker weights about 5.5 lbs!

You can contact the seller via the ebay page (he lists his email in the description).

"Estimate heat dissipation 0.6 degree per watt per inch in still air."

If that's degrees centigrade, that is excellent, and it's a great heat sink. I payed much more for 0.7C / W.

Damn. I bought a giant aluminum heatsink but I couldn't find one anodized. Wish I had seen that a month ago.
