Default Who wants to build my control box for me....

I will buy and ship all the stuff to you, you build it, and I will pay to ship it back, and pay you for your time?

I really dont want to do this, and dont want to die trying.

It would help a lot of the members that "might" be interested if you would describe the "control box" that you are wanting to have.

Like:
PID control?
BCS control?
HLT + BOIL + RIMS? - Or something else?
What is the system size?
Many more questions as well.

Help us help you.

I agree, sorry.

3 vessel, 15gal eHerms with 2 pumps

2 pid eHerms, 2x240@5500w elements, 2 pumps...

Internals

PIDs from Kegkits
RTDs from here....RTDs

I would like to put this in a toll box to save some money, but if not then I can get the enclosure.

See my "rebuilding again" thread as well.

Hope this helps

Tim

Please be very careful on your PID selection. You are on your own with a lot of them if you need help later on.

I would seriously look at Auber Instruments.

..and I am looking at them as well, price from each vendor is really close, but I cant compair much of anyting rgiht now because the Army has the KegKit site blocked for some reason, they kinda lock down the filtering when you are not at home station.

As I said - be very careful on your choice on the PID (KegKit). Think this one through again. Please.!

Great.! I thought I'd have to PM you the total root reasoning.

It's just a "don't go there" issue with me.

Sigh...!

No worries P-J, and thx for looking out. Its stuff like this that makes me enjoy the hobby so much.
Right inline with my other community, Cigars, lots of looking out for your own.

So, did I cover the basics of what other info might be needed?

There are a few main reasons why I would like it built for me.
1. Scared to death to do it my self
2. Dont wanna pay HighGravity Prices for the EBCIII
3. Last one I dont wanna say out loud......

Tim
