Time to start the build thread as the system is progressing along. I'll try to be diligent and post pics.

More pictures of parts and goodies. The frame still needs cross supports. I'm thinking of decking it with Trex. It's 10' x32".

Very cool! What Auber PIDs are those? Are they 1/16 or 1/4 DIN? Are you concerned on how close together they are, you may not have room for compression connectors. What are they other square holes for?

The control panel build needed to get creative as the panel was used and had extra holes. The stainless front seemed to do the trick. Just trying to get some ideas of the placement of the knobs and buttons. PID controllers are fitted in place. Thats it for now!

Those are the 1/4s. For ten bucks more they'll be easier to see. (The eyes aren't as good as they used to be).
