^ Awesome. So far so good, I obviously haven't had a chance to shoot it but I do need to get a loader for it as my girly hands hurt putting rounds into the magazines. It is MUCH smaller and lighter than my full size XD9 though.

9mm can be a pain to load .45 rounds are much easier.

Shoot, the shield is MUCH smaller than my Sub-compact XD9. Single stack makes a huge difference.

That's cool. Now you'll be able to train your E46 to do all kinds of things.

Yeah for now. Waiting for water cooling parts for the CPU. It's just open air testing right now. This Ryzen stuff is all new to me, so until I get the kinks worked out and figure out how to overclock the snot out of it, it won't go in a case.

Yep, I'll set it up to read in degrees F for both. Probably going to set a 10F band for the control signal. Once it's set up it should just be turn it on and set the desired temp each time and let it go.

I've been using Watlow for a few projects at work. These things are impressive. It has a built in relay for up to 15A at 120VAC. And it auto tunes it's PID. It controls these things +\- 1C. Quite simple to setup. I'll show you the box it's wired in if you're interested.

Now that's nice. My printer will do that as well for the heater in the extruder but I've still had to manually tweak it to get the response/overshoot how I want it.

Hearing PID makes me flinch. I hated control systems class.
