    Are you talking about the small slit next to the rj11 jack? If so, it is for one of the servo mounts...I made my BGE connector last night so I should get a chance to test it out tonight.

    I did a quick test yesterday. The graph is on the first page and the results speak for themselves. I have a couple of minor things I am going to adjust for convenience. Unfortunately I won't be able to play with this for another week.

    What is the size of the outside square portion of your holder. It looks like it might be able to slide into a 2" piece of square tubing, which would be perfect for my smoker.

    Yeah, I want the whole kit for my large Big Green Egg. Will you be selling the adapter that fits the fan to the Big Green Egg air intake?

    Yes, I have been using it when I have time to bbq, which unfortunately, I have not had a lot of time for lately. That said, I don't have any plans to start selling these at this time because I don't have any data on how they fair in other peoples hands yet (coming soon), and I really don't have time to add another thing to my 3d print tasks. My main concern is servo wear during repeated use. I simply have not had enough time to run it over and over. If you know someone with a 3d printer and want to try it out, the files are on the first page.

    The mount is extremely simple to make and is described in a post in this thread. You just need some sheet aluminum, 1" square aluminum tubing, a 1" chisel, hammer, metal snips, JB weld, and a drill.

    1. Cut out a 77 mm square from the sheet metal
    2. Draw an "H" in the middle with dimensions of 1"x 1"
    3. Use chisel to pierce through metal along the borders of the "H"
    4. Use hammer to bend back the newly formed tabs at 90 degree angles
    5. Insert and 2" piece of 1" square aluminum tube in between the 2 tabs and slightly (1 mm or so) through the opening in the sheet metal
    6. Use 1/8" drill bit to drill a single hole through the tabs and metal tube
    7. Use an M3 or 1/8" screw to fasten together
    8. Place JB weld along the edge of the tube that is protruding through the sheet metal to form a nice airtight seal

    Are the files you have linked in the first post the latest if I could find someone else to print it for me?
