    You can get tankless water heaters that hit 180. You wouldn't want another controller. They
    have an integral controller that works pretty damn good. There are people that do this. I
    visited a 3BBL Non...

    Have you contacted the manufacturer of that control box? It might be a known issue. Some
    switching power supplies are know to trip GFCI breakers as well. I wonder what is in that
    control box.

    Oh, well I go electric so heat was not an issue for me. They do make some high heat primers

    oil/grease off with a decent degreaser and then use a good rust preventive primer.

    They actually do make a gas-less flux core wire for welding stainless with a mig. I do know
    it's incredibly expensive though. Like $20 a pound.

    You probably won't get a true 100% with a 555 timer PWM circuit, but you are probably looking
    at something like 99%. You won't ever notice the difference. The timer will reset and then
    immediately pic...

  • Posted in thread: Smallest, cheapest electric rig possible for 1 gallon on 04-24-2013 at 10:14 PM
    If you are only doing one gallon batches, then why not just do it on the stove? That is
    assuming you have access to a kitchen. IF you don't have a stove then a cheap hotplate would
    work. What exactly ...
