Im pretty sure I have two, two pole and two master on/off (red push-pull) switches and one alarm led left. I also have some LEDS left but all of mine are twelve volt. I ordered all of my PIDS from lightobject.com and my timer was from auberins as were the 4" probes. The electrical panel was from Platt electric and was about $20! The relays I got from work for free and all my switches are from ebay. The wiring and connectors all free from work also.

Well the PIDS were about $30 each 24volt LEDS about $3-5 each. Temp probes about $45 each. The switches were about $5 each. Transformer/Wire/relays. Ymmv
