Paul Westaway wanted to make sure his woodstove didn't exceed the upper limit of temperature and overheat, thus damaging the stove or causing a fire. He wanted a monitor that could send out an alert if the stove got too hot. He was surprised he couldn't find a monitor available commercially. So, like any enterprising Gadget Freak, he decided to make one of his own. Using a handful of inexpensive components, Westaway created his own Woodstove Digital Temperature Monitor.
I'm not an engineer but I can basically follow a schematic. I very much want to build the wood stove temperature monitor/alarm Paul Westaway designed but need a little more help than case 183 provides.
The parts list is incomplete: it provides Alleid part numbers for some items but leaves out enough of a description of the others that I cannot figure out what to buy. The "digital controller" for example, is too generic - I need enough to go on so I can find a supplier for it.
If anyone knows how to contact Mr. Westaway I would very much appreciate it. It would be a blast for me to build something like this myself and it would be a great comfort knowing I can get a warning if my wood stove gets too hot.
