PID controllers on EBay
 
Did anyone see these on EBay? What do you think?

Interesting. The listing actually references a thread here. It looks like the seller is a forum member from China.

In the brethren thread the seller references, he says:

The lack of any more posts on this in 4 months would be a bit of a red flag to me.

Just make sure you are not buying something without acceptable reviews. Find out who here has tried this PID.

In my best Obi Wan Kenobi voice

These are not the PID's you are looking for

He goes by woodpelletsmoker on the Brethren. He is not very active here, has posted 10 times and all of them were related to his products. I had asked one of the mods about him awhile back because he did not meet the tenure and post requirements to be in Sales and Ventures. I know I had my 6 months and over 100 posts.

Just my 2 cents

Yea... it seems like it MIGHT be a case of you get what you pay for. For $100, it seems like great value, but I am not going to be the guinea pig.

I have made contact with Wank a few times but so far all I have gotten is he offers no guarantee with his stuff because he is in China.

He claims the probe wires are good to 480 degrees. One little grease fire, which they all have, and the wires are toast. How do you get them replaced if he has moved on to other ventures? In the long run, buy from someone that will be there when you need them.
I guess that's three cents.

Seems he is more active on his Ventures Forum. You all may want to address these concerns there so that he can answer them personally.

He has a ventures forum, and used to run a banner ad also.. our correspondence seems to go thru an online interpreter of sorts. Ebay is all positive feedback and seems to have other stuff too. http://stores.ebay.com/pelletpits

Thats about all i can help with.

keep in mind, as stated in our ventures section, that area is PAID advertising and in no way constitutes an endorsement.

The security rules that were written to control subscription access started failing due to an inherited change in some rules higher up the chain. This allowed some vendors subscriptions to get thru without the tenure and establish before they were caught. This came along when we were experimenting with banner ads and we have decided to allow the banner advertisers to purchase an associated vendor forum regardless of tenure. I am in the process reworking the guidelines. We will also be offering reduced banner ad rates with vendor forum subscriptions.


i just have to stop procrastinating and do it. :icon_blush:
