    Repurposing Grainfather temperature controller

    I acquired a Grainfather conical controller. The original monochrome model. I am working on modding it to make it a generic temperature controller. I know that I can just wire up an STC-1000 to do the same thing but it has a couple nice features that the STC-1000 boxes don’t have. I have the...
