Ah -- excellent -- actual numbers -- thanks VR! These are actually pretty close to what I recorded when I added my TC -- if anything my temps are lower. This is a great relief -- I was beginning to wonder if I happened to own an insanely hot Silvia, or something!
So you would indeed be looking at a 5 minute wait to get into the 110*C ballpark that PIDs seem use as their initial setpoint. Sounds like a convincing argument for a PID -- sadly our own PID project has stalled, so I expect to be temp surfing for a while yet :-[
Mal -- thkx for the video -- was definitely worth a laugh *;) *In that particular case they were very seriously instructing Silvia users to pull their shot right on the peak of the temperature cycle. Cause hotters always better, I think was the reasoning *:-?
Still, perhaps Ill try it -- I need to drink (or at least use) more coffee anyway *::) (says she, eyeing her embarrassingly large stash of greens)
