Quick one – the electronics for my aluminium foundry. AliExpress shopping list was in my last post.
A Couple of Progress Photos
I got all the electronics wired up and tested it by sticking the thermocouple in the oven while I was cooking a frozen chicken kiev for dinner – I figured the oven thermostat was ‘accurate enough’. Turns out it was: 200C on the oven read 200C (ish) on the PID.
Wiring the ‘Power-Switch with a Light’
I bought this from Jaycar. It rated to 15A @ 240V. It has 6 terminals though and I could not for the life of me (through my usual trial-and-error approach) work out how to wire it up. There are no technical spec sheets or anything, just some numbers. I found video below which answered my question…
The guy who posted it was actually installing it on a foundry too. He, VegOilGuy, has pre-empted and done-MUCH-better all my various projects, which is a little shattering 🙁
