Very nice. I intend to copy a lot of this and leave room for a future countdown timer. Are you intending to install any terminal strips or will you use wire nuts to connect the wires inside your control box?

I was planning to buy a regular electrical enclosure, but this is a lot - like $80 less expensive. .

Thanks. I do intend to use terminal strips. I'm thinking maybe lined up vertically but not sure as of yet. I am going to have a homebrew and sit down and think about it.
My power is going to come in down near the two outlets so the terminal strip may end up down there.
I have to cut venting somewhere because of the fan on the SSR heat sink so that may come into play as well.

I did a little work today on the graphics for the vinyl C-Panel decals. If you are wondering, the 1's and 0's on the PID decal are binary code for those three letters. P I D = 01010000 01001001 01000100

Subscribed. Looks like you have a majority of the same parts I have or am looking at - Same junction box and Harbor Freight punch set.

Keep up the good work.

Just to give you an idea how thick the box is.
.182" is typical throughout.





Ha Ha! finally found the rest of my spring tip bottle filler.

Measuring the depth from the bottom of the steam basket to the bottom of the kettle.



2.967" , so a touch off 3". Plenty of room for the element.

Lets cut the access for the element. I measured up 1-1/2" from the bottom and used the auto punch to get my mark.


Pre-drill.


Step drill.


These punches are cool tools.



Literally, like butter.

I'm going to solder the lock nut onto the kettle so this cleaning the metal around the hole is very important.


Getting a nice clean flat surface for the solder to wick up to.
