Well, I pulled the trigger on one of these. Price seems a bit low. I'll let you guys know whats wrong with it when I get it.

I have that same one. Not bad for the buck. Does not fit into my fermentation fridge so I don't use it anymore. Hmmm, maybe I should sell it!

I have one. Fittings leaked when I first got it. Went to Home Depot a got a few o-rings and stopped the leaking. I love it.

Well I got mine in the mail today. I can't really open it up and go through it here at the office. Will post more when I go over it tonight. The packaging reminds me of harbor freight.....


Edit 5-29-09 13:20

Opened it up while I was home for lunch. This crappy phone pic doesn't show the bend in the dial well but you can see the broken glass. Have emailed the seller, we'll see how it goes...

i was thinking of picking one of these up as well once they add more.

Let us know how the seller helps you out with the dial.

What about the rest of it, how is the construction at first glance?

I got one for Christmas and was thinking of getting more silicone gaskets to have on hand if needed. I contacted the seller and asked where he got them so I could get some extras. He informed me that they should last forever, but he would send a couple out to me for free when he got more. He said they would be too expensive for me to get on my own. I thought that was nice.
