I just found this stir plate kit online and I'm wondering if it's a good price or if it's better to buy everything separately myself. It looks like the only thing you need after getting this kit is the housing, and a stir bar.

It's $19.99 + shipping ($5 for me). And $3 off with this coupon code: ALABTU

That's a great find. If you don't already have the parts this is the way I'd go if I didnt just build mine. I spent about that just filling the parts I didn't have. Again, great find.

Awesome, thanks for confirming this for me. A stir plate wasn't something I really *needed* yet, but since this seems pretty cheap, I'll probably go for it.

One thing I noticed: The kit says it comes with a "Resistor," and I'm a little worried about how to install it. I read some webpages about it, and seems simple enough. I'm just not entirely sure where on this build it would go...

Using the wire colors shown in the picture...


I'm trying to figure out if that shiny chunk of metal is supposed to be the magnet. With that odd shape it might be a challenge to balance it on a rotor hub...

Cheers!

looks like a great price! can't go any cheaper than that. Unless you have stuff laying in the closet like I did.

A while ago I posted my stir plate, if you go to page 3 and scroll to the bottom I listed few items that will make it plug and play, no soldering necessary. However it will be little more expensive most likely. (the links are to a canadian website)
