    PID Ready Master Caster Option

    So as some of you know I had to purchase a replacement MC because my friend borrowed it and basically doesn't have access to it any more. Long story.

    So as I was on he phone with Magma I was asking if they could ship it without the thermostat. They said yes, it would be $45 cheaper.
    While I was asking I asked if they could install the thermocouple too.
    They said sure. Cost $25.
    The MC arrived this morning.
    Exactly how I wanted it.

    They include the female plug for the thermocouple and include the connectors for power as well.

    I think I will offer a option on the panels I build for PID ready MC.

    Good to see you got your replacement machine.

    That is basically how mine looks, the thermostat died on it, so in removed it and run it off a PID now. I replaced the thermostat part with a piece of sheet metal.

    How many more oarts do you need to get it back up and running? i hope you didn't loose the automation part of it, those parts would add up pretty fast too.

    Nice. I see yours has a much different fan on it than mine does.

    Mine didn't even come with a fan I think it has to be one of the first models they made.

    I have all the automation parts.
    I just have to make the mods to the frame and lead pour bracket.
    Hope to have it up and running in a week

    Thanks for posting this. I was planning on ordering one next month. What is the wait time for a new unit?

    Depends on when you order it.
    Initially they told me two weeks.
    When my buddy ordered it they had 4 order come in at the same time so it was three weeks
