Default RIMS started

Just had to share...

The parts for my RIMS tube showed up today from Murray Equipment.
This is a lot bigger than I had imagined it, which makes it even more awesome! Its all 1 1/2" stainless. I was going to put it together but I only had 3" of teflon tape left on my spool.

I just bought an electrical enclosure on e-bay and have been collecting other misc parts this fall. I still need to order parts from Auber, McMaster, and Mouser.

You're on your way!
I had great luck with my RIMS in a tool box. I used the same SS pieces from Murray.

I know I've seen this in another thread a while back but couldn't find it again - can you point me to or post your parts list?

I don't have my list here at work, but this is all you need to know about RIMS.

I made my order to Murray today. Tomorrow I order the PID, SSR, Heat Sink, and RTD from Auber. My project box is an ammo box. Switches will be from the Shack.

The 1 1/2" SS was ~$50 + $16 S&H.

Was that just for the Tees and the large pipe? Did you order bushings too? My bill was about $66.
