Is this possible to do? I don't have any electrical experience so any input would be appreciated. I drew up a diagram of what I thought might work using an extra switch and SSR but this could be completely incorrect.
If anyone could let me know if I can change anything to make this work (short of buying another PID and thermocouple) it would be greatly appreciated!
