Ive changed my entire direction yet again. Thats how it goes when you have no clear plan from the beginning. Its how I like to build stuff, though. Now I've decided to mount the entire thing low on the grill body since mounting on my newly created control panel will have the burner much too high. After I mount everything Ill be able to test and see how it heats and kinda make sure everything is going to work out. Once it does work out, I can mount a servo on the knob and then control that with a regular potentiometer, Ive played with that code many times and it works well and easily.
Here's some pics of the valve.
|Here's the standoff I attached, which broke the thin aluminum ear that I attached it to.|
|A rubber band and a washer hold the standoff straight until everything is dry.|
|Thoroughly goobered up with JB-Weld it's left to set and cure.|
|The finished standoff stud, dry, straight and ready for duty. Gotta love JB-Weld|
|I give up if it breaks off again.|
