    Hey run, do you advocate turning the heat on, then turning it off? I wish I had a PID or something to see how warm it's getting. My problem is I'm trying to find the perfect temp and pressure and I'm chasing my tail so to say.

    I'd be interested in your process with the Star as well as what lube you use in it.

    Your input is very valuable to me.

    thank you Sir

    Joe

    I run a poor man's PID on my Star.....power to heater controlled by a rheostat fan switch. Monitor temperature of heater by placing a "meat" thermometer on the heating plate.

    Build a pid. You'll love it. 'Should be able to put one together for $60 bucks or so.

    OBIII sells em complete, if you want to get it going fast.
    Colt 1860, it just feels right.
