If you need help, let me know. I finished my control panel a few months ago. Plus I'm always up for helping another military brewer.

I just got my panel done 100% wired and all through Ryan at ebrewsupply.com

I really am pleased with the quality of everything and would recommend him a million times over. PM me if you'd like more details and or pics of how I am using his stuff.

First let me thank all those that have offerd up help, it really means a lot.
This forum runs on the Pay it Fwd spirit, it really does!

Second, can we please leave the drama, and bashing out of this thread. Everything that is being talked about has been discussed in detail in other treads dedicated to the topic.

This is simply a thread asking for a kind soul to do something for me, that I am not able/confident enough to do for myself....(swollows a bit of pride..lol)

Again, thank you for all your help and input, it is always needed and very much valued.

Tim

Also after reading all the post I see that you were denied being a vendor! Too funny!

And he still is up to same ole crap here is the latest filings with BBB....

http://www.bbb.org/northern-alabama/...886/complaints
go back and look at the dates on the complaints. Everything stays on BBB for 3 years and all but 2 complaints are almost 3 years old! Tom from 'kegkits'.

I've decided not to edit any of the posts in this thread, because they are neither off-topic nor counter-factual.

But, please heed the OP's plea quoted above - no more conversation about Kegkits in this thread, please. Go to the company reviews forum (in the homebrewing community section) if you want to continue the conversation there.

MX1, if Kegkits gets raised again in this thread, please hit the report button and a moderator will delete it.

I am not a fan of deleting content, I just hope we can keep it on track is all.
Thank you for your attention.

Your right about the 400-600 in parts

And the EBCIII lost me at mech relays....

But in all the excitment, I forgot that my baby sister works at an Elect Wholesaler....

Witing on some prices from her right now.

I think you might have a bit of trouble getting all that in a tool box. By the time you add in bus bars, SSR, heatsink, fan, and contactor, its going to be real tight. You also have to leave room for wires to route without kinking.

FWIW my control box is in a toolbox.

Don't forget to look at the for sale page here. I got a lot of stuff from there and it save me a bunch. Also you can check out http://www.ebrewsupply.com/, www.mouser.com they both have a lot of stuff for what seems like good deals
