Still want a drill press but don't have one yet. Although I am in line to get my grandfathers when we get teh time to arrange it; a really nice delta floor standing model from the mid/early 90s


Will let you know what I end up doing

you could quickly do a plunge with the dremel on the 4 sides then use the jigsaw to finish out to the corners. drilling the 4 corners works as long as you use the right size bit and drill inside the corner, not on the corner to avoid an over sized round corner.

I think if you maybe PM twogunz who they are, or maybe as he is suggesting above. Idea being, if you have a unique number to match up with your pick up, some dude casually reading our thread can't walk in and make off with someone's grain on the sneek. I would hope this wouldn't ever happen, but with this many people it wouldn't hurt us to be on top of it.



I am 99% sure I will use a dremel tool with a cut off wheel. I used that to cut my din rail as practice and it worked really well, easy to control. If I can't get into the corners of the square I will bust out my jigsaw with a fine toothed metal blade
Someone else on another thread said they used a Deremel and it worked great to cut out the DIN spots for the PIDs....

I got to brew on a 1 barrel system the other day in a micro brewery. Very cool to use pumps and some different techniques. Only downside is now I want a pump and some other goodies! Upside was that I got invited back to help out again.

Default Brew, brew, brew

My fermentation chamber (aka old refrigerator with a 60 watt bulb mounted in a paint can controlled by a $22 stc-1000 digital temperature controller) is full with two 5 gallon batches I did last week.

But, I am hoping to do my first lager on Saturday and to do that, my first starter either tonight or tomorrow. I'm figuring I can do the fermentation on the lager on my basement floor (hopefully) as the basement is about 57 degrees.

Trying to keep that pipeline going and use up some of the grains from the previous buy!
