PID theory can be very obscure. PID implementation is rather simple. (And I hope I don't have _too_ many typos below; it is not code-checked, but the basics are there.) Note that in the pseudo-code b

My experience is that prices will rise until I make a major purchase. If I wait, the price will rise more. So wait a day or two after I buy something; prices will then drop dramatically and you can s

You are absolutely correct. The needs to be one regulator, and one only. It looks from this like your generator requires propane at 11" so your house regulator should be appropriate, but you'll also

I'm not sure which direction you need the offset, but have you considered attaching a handle from (e.g.) a mason's trowel to a blade holder? Or even just honing the trowel edge to a useful sharpness?
