Finally, some picture proof that I am progressing.
At first I was going to build my panel from scratch with a clear front panel. Had It all mounted like this:
But I woke up in the morning with several stress cracks around some of the switches that I had probably tightened too much. So that led me to a 14"x10" box as seen below:
I'm pretty happy with it, especially since a co worker gave it to me as it had two holes cut incorrectly in it. I just placed the PID and timer strategically toe cover them.
Here is a shot of the wiring I have done so far. Really pushing to brew on it this weekend since the SWMBO is out of town and I can have some personal time with the new rig.
My question is, is it ok to connect all of the hot's together like this for the input side of a switch? Or should I run more than one back to the hot bus?
Also, for those thinking about doing any electric build, make sure you have a pair of these:
Lastly,, I decided to use all twist lock connections at the box side of things. here are the power cords.
