    The files are now up on Thingiverse for download. Be warned that with the size of the case, I have not allowed room for a fuse holder, so you may want to think about installing an in-line fuse with the AC portion of the wiring. Safety first!

    I'm not an EE, and frankly when I start working with household power I get a little nervous attempting anything without getting someone's approval. So when I go to hook up my SSR is this how I want to do it?

    Looks correct.

    On the AC switching side of the relay, that red wire in your diagram should be the "hot" wire ie: not the "neutral" wire.

    On the DC input side of the relay, the - and + would be the DC 12v - and + from the RJ45 jack from the heatermeter ( GND and BLOW )

    Yep, what he said. You're good.

    If you're used to cars/12volt, you're used to black being negative (-). Remember in the home.. black is the Hot. Or if you want to remember.. black == death/ouch, in general.

    Here's mine wired up if it helps you:

    Neutral (white) and ground (green) pass through from end to end. The hot input heads into the SSR and then out to the output.

    Thanks Seth, that's one of those things that I forget until I open up a wall receptacle then the black==dead clicks in.

    I've been watching for sales on the Anova but it's still too much(over $200 CAD) and I love the idea of the HM doing double duty.

    How is the Sous vide going so far? Any downside to the slow cooker being operated the way it does with the HM?

    Probably the only down side with a slow cooker is you're limited by the size (volume). Otherwise, it's been working like a charm.
