Thought this might be useful. Some visuals of the Bakatronics board in use. Swapped out C1 with
a 2.2uF electrolytic capacitor as others have done.The board is descriptive, telling you where

Those little ICs can get zapped with static electricity or anything, really. I think it was
Walker who said he uses a DIP socket to plug the chip into. I do the same thing, because it

I was in there the other day and had the same thought! But then I noticed it was aluminum and

If I were to guess - Which I'm about to - Your dryer came with a 4-wire plug, and the house had

as long as...

I drafted a model of a 2-tier brewery based on one I saw from Sabco. I couldn't find a picture
of the Sabco when I actually went to do the modelling, so I did it from memory. The main thing
