You have some time before Auber ships. (out of stock) If you don't find a box that works, you can call Suyi Liu (the owner of Auber Ins) and add to your order. He's a great guy & will work with you.

Just saying.

Actually ordered on the 7th and it was shipped on the 8th. He said they were getting a very small shipment and would fulfill orders prior to listing in stock again. Guess I was lucky, also talked to grainger this morning and my toggle switch is in.

For those of you that are following this thread I wanted to mention I got my switch from grainger yesterday and it has a different toggle then what is shown online. It has a large black paddle toggle about 2in long. This is a +/- for myself as it will be easier to use, but I'm more affraid of accidently switching it.

However I could always put a small glass box around it that must be flipped up to adjust the switch. You know like in all the war movies, but I'll be launching beer not bombs.

You know your wife loves you when your spending the first half of V-day getting parts for your brewery. Off yo pickup my SPST switches, fuses, and stop by grainger and see about getting the switch pictured on their site without the huge toggle.

Was looking a grainger's site and found this:

http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/NKK...PC5?Pid=search

Which looks like it will be even better as it has quick connect terminals. Hopefully it will not have the huge toggle. I'll attempt to confirm prior to having them order it in.

I have a Type K Thermocouple however it is currently at Father-in-laws. I would like to use some sort of socket/plug rather then running the wire through just a hole in the box.

I've been toying with the idea of a metal tool box, or using a junction box. Feel free to share any recommendation.

I have a bunch of left over stuff from my build. I know I have a 1/4" NPT water tight 4" k-type thermocouple probe with plug from Auber made to mount to the front of the box. The ends need to be dressed up, but it works. I also have some good red, black, green, & white stranded wire in different sizes. And, I think I have one or two heavy duty terminal strips. You can have the stuff if it will help. PM me a shipping address and I'll get it out to you.

Awesome!

Did Grainger take the big toggle switch back? I hope so. Your replacement should be spot on. Just a little heads up. When you use terminal disconnects on your wiring, be sure to solder the wire connection, after you crimp them on, for the the high current applications. It will save you a huge amount of grief down the road.

Thanks P-J, I'll do just that. Yeah Grainger's Customer Service was top notch, the new switch has disconnect spades which will make things easier, I can understanding soldering them after. The nice thing is that it was in stock, so I didn't have to wait.

I've been looking into getting a high end adjustable soldering iron. I've found post on a couple of craft thread using an iron with Stay Brite 8. This will make things MUCH easier.
