Need complete parts list for wood stove monitor 183

NO RATINGS
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.

Thanks,

Dan
