Default Nothing new just another DIY stir plate

I decided to build one because they are so damn expensive. This one costed me 27 dollars to build because the only part I had on hand was a hard drive magnet. I did not reinvent the wheel I pretty much copied what was out there and it works so well. I'm using a 1inch stir bar that works great and got a few of them because I'm likely to lose them.



It's not even on high. the good thing is when I do put it on high the everything stays in place.



In action with some Belgium yeast.

Loved the way this stir plate worked so much I made another one for when I made back to back batches.



This time rather than trying to find something to place the fan on, I glued it straight to the lid of the box. Works great. I used Goop.



Here is the wiring


This is my first stirplate where I used a plastic bowl to hold the fan in place.


2 is better than one!
