Hey Lumpyyyyy,
I liked your temperature controller you built - I am doing the same, but using a different case. What did you use to make the cut-outs in the ABS plastic? Your build is quite clean - are there any tips you can provide?

thanks in advance,
Rick

Can you link to the build I showed? I don't even remember posting it.

Saw it here, maybe it's not a build of yours...

Not actually my build. I'm working on one right now that is clean like this but having trouble finding a good box to use. The parts are easily sourced from a place like digikey or mouser. The best way I've found to cut these is with a jigsaw after cutting a pilot hole with a drill.

I read that too, and finish with a file. I bought this Hammond box (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002BSRIO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and used sketch-up to place components.

I can't conclude where to place the hot & cold outlets for best use/access. I saw someone mounted both on top in a duplex outlet - I think I want them separated further, in case one of the hot or cold plugs is a wall-wort power supply; or a formed plug that might route its cord over a too-close outlet.

But what to cut it out with? Hole and jig saw just might be the thing. Thanks.
