Hot side aeration. I guess it doesnt make that big of an impact to homebrewers, but it just looks like your pumping a garden hose in there and ive got to believe that that might have a little bit more of an impact...

Question for those of you who used the Auber box and an external heat sink.

What did you use to cut the hole for the heat sink's SSR mount?

I drilled a couple holes with the step bit and squared it off with a sawzall.

Dremel with a cutoff disc.

Much more precise tool than a sawzall!

I tried starting a hole and then using a sawzall; it went badly for me right away haha. I even used a fine toothed metal blade, but the material seemed a bit flimsy to remain rigid enough to be cut. Could have very well been my technique.

Like JRB, I ended up using a dremel with a cutoff disc(s).

I'm curious as I don't currently own a Dremel, or Sawzall if I could drill enough 4 or 5 large holes using a step bit that I'd be able to fit the mount through. The heat sink would cover up the mess.

The heat sink has more surface area than the SSR. it will cover up a rough hole. You just need the heat sink to contact the SSR through the thermal cement.

Yeah, I think I might just get a Dremel. Seems like something handy to have around the house.

Two more questions come to mind.

1. Did anyone use a fuse for the pump outlet? Seems like not a bad idea, I'm just not sure what fuse to get.

2. Is this the correct resistor?

I feel like I'm making some progress on this I just need to start ordering all the parts .

Thanks,
Ty
