"Yes!!! Exactly... Then everthing should be grounded correctly and more streamlined. Just wanted to double check whether or not this was feasible. Your directions up above sound rather clear, but when working with your diagram, I may lose…"
"I see what you are asking. if you connect the power from the plug to the stc-1000 and then carry the ground and common over to the receptical. (Second hole in your box correct) And then take the hot lead 110v to one side of SSR and…"
"Remember, I am kind of thick....
I'm pretty clear on our origanal design as shown in first video, but second video found toady has the added receptacle built into the faceplate, which I could use by using a cut off extension cord running to…"

In the meantime, I decided to install a GFCI wall receptacle in fish room where everything will eventually be plugged in. I had procrastinated for a number of years about…"
"Thanks Steve and Pieter! Much appreciated for your help thus far... Thus being the operative word!;)
The grounding issues has me worried. The temperature controller doesn't have a ground screw or terminal. I went online and Googled…"
"Hi Chris, You have done well. Either wall wart would be fine.. What ever fits your layout better will work.
The installation of the SSR on the heatsink isn't rocket science. The Thermal Grease is the stuff between the…"
