Default Cal build with mods

when I went to build my cal "clone" I decided to do a couple things a little different when it came to the cords

I thought that the recessed female plugs were a little expensive, so I decided to make one cord that would control my heating elements

This had several advantages as far as i was concerned

1. price- locking plug ends, Male and female were less expensive
2. no need for the interlock as I can only have one kettle hooked up at any one time
3. shorter cords on the kettles if they needed to be moved

I come out of my control panel with a 8 foot #10 3 wire cord with a female cord end on it
and the HLT and BK both have a short cord with a male end
and I switch back and forth

Interesting adaptation of Kal's system. Thinking outside the box to save money too...
