    Dragon, good idea with the fans, I use a case fan to keep the motor cool on my DIY case polisher
    Yes, I did the same on my wet SS pin case cleaner by installing a salvaged fan out of an old vent hood. It blows air through the salvaged washing machine motor that now runs so cool you can put you hand on it. I built my cleaner then found it only takes 10 minutes to clean 3/4's of a gallon of cases to like new appearance so it's not like the motor runs long enough to overheat. Heat is the enemy of electronics so it doesn't hurt to do an overkill on cooling or at leas that is my excuse.

    Hey guys. Help!?

    In order to do salt bath annealing, and to make lead casting easier/nicer, I finally bought a PID. I have had great luck with Banggood, so I bought one from them.

    I chose one that said "0 to 999 degrees C". After the requisite 3 week shipping time, it arrived and I was excited..... until I opened it and it says "0 to 400C". Bummer, that might just barely work for casting, but not for the annealing. (500 to 550C)

    The unit says "AKC REX-C100". Does anyone know if this will work for the higher temps???

    Thanks in advance,

    I do understand that at the very least I will need a higher temp thermocouple.

    you should be able to change temp range in the parameters

    Thanks! I would never bother sending a 12 dollar item back to China; but what bummed me out was possibly having to wait another 3 weeks to get the correct one. As it is, it looks like it will cost me another 10 bucks just to get the right thermocouple in a reasonable time!

    Oh well, so goes the commerce with China... My fault I suppose. I would love to only buy American made, but just do not have the bucks for the inflated prices, and so many things aren't made here anyway!
