    Re: Deluxestogie's Endoskeletal Wood Tobacco Kiln / Flue-cure chamber

    Awesome thread Bob!,
    Thanks for sharing this, it's exactly what I was looking for at the moment.

    Good to hear that the croc pot produce enough heat to maintain fermentation temps too, I had thought about a heat pad of some description but already have a croc pot so maybe I can just use that too.

    I have the fridge I think I mentioned to you and had thought to use this controller here I found on Amazon, no wiring .... it will do the job right?

    The controller that you link to is one with which I am not familiar. And there is nearly no info there on the listing. Does it use a remote sensor, or must the controller be placed inside the kiln? Is 220 volts what you need?

    The wiring of the controller that I use (and any similar controllers) is really easy.

    It will. It is very similar to the Ranco Thermostat I have (in 120 volts, assuming you require 220). This one is already wired with an outlet.... buy it!

    I just built my kiln with an Inkbird controller like that - works great!

    I guess we settled that question. Thanks.

    Re: Deluxestogie's Endoskeletal Wood Tobacco Kiln / Flue-cure chamber

    Thank you guys,
    Yes 240v mains over here in blighty......there isn't a whole lot of info on it no, at first glance I thought it had two output sockets as you fitted on your's Bob but one is for a 'cooler' appliance.

    I just ordered it so I'll let you know it goes, I appreciate the advice

    Sorry, edit just to mention it does have a remote temp sensor on it yes, it's a NTC sensor (I don't know what that is?) on a 6ft lead.

    An NTC sensor is just a fancy way of saying it is a thermistor. A thermistor is basically a resistor that is very sensitive to temperature changes.

    JLP - I use an inkbird (I think I bought it on UK amazon) without issue here so it should be fine for you too

    Thanks Jitterbugdude, I have to concede defeat when it comes to electronic components, was very interested in my younger years playing with short-wave radio etc but didn't keep it up as a hobby unfortunately. I knew it was the temperature probe but that's all ,

    Is that temp controller you have in your kiln an Inkbird 'type' Bob?, I saw Inkbird ones just like it when ordering mine...

    Mine is not branded. The exact model (from several years ago) is no longer available, but is similar to this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/10A-110V-Dig...-/141731449329

    My line voltage is not 220, but rather 110v. My original controller failed after 2-1/2 years (if I remember correctly), so I purchased two more of the same thing, and currently have the spare waiting for any future fail.

    Unlike the Inkbird device, the one that I use needs to be mounted within some sort of box. I used a whittled hole in a cigar box for this.
