I just bought a digital thermostat for my freezer and I'm fixing to build a box to house it in.I wanted to use xlr connects and wire it directly to the compressor and use a 1/8 stereo jack for the temp probe. Then I'll prolly super glue magnets to the box. I saw this idea from Black Heart brewery on you tube. Here is some pics of the parts with links.Any suggestions and feedback would be much appreciated.
