https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CXMLIL8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is the one I used. I used my dremel and cut hole for it on the front panel left of the speed controller. Wiring is simple with no splices necessary since the motor power supply has screw terminals. Ju...

Re: To You Guys Who Anneal With Tempilaq

I have a DYI annealer so the process is a little different. Mine has digital indicators for the speed settings which you won't have. I write down the settings for each cartridge type on a cheat-sheet and it makes set up the next time go faster. This is a great sub $10 20 minute mod for an annealeez...

Re: Thanks to the forum boss

The behind the scenes stuff is definitely appreciated.

Wasn't there an amazon link we could use that contributed to the site every time we bought something over there? Maybe we could get that bumped back up somewhere to offer a little help.
