Most folks can find used or N.O.S. PIDs on eBay. Depending on what you want
to do, a PID will cost ~$50, a solid state relay ~$10, a TC ~$10, enclosure
~$15, and various wire & connectors ~$10. Assembling the parts is the
hardest part of doing a PID conversion. Figure ~4 hours to do the actual
work if it's your first time.

Piece of cake; can't figure why anyone would mail their machine to someone
to do the work for them. Same folks, I'm guessing here, that have a $1000
espresso machine sitting on their counter at home and still go to Starbuck's
for their morning latte.

In the spirit of sharing that usenet is supposedly all about, could you
(or anyone) please tell me where I can get myself one of these N.O.S. PID
units for my Faema Family? Or even a used one? I don't really want to buy
a kit, I'd like to learn by doing- like you must have once upon a time.

Of course, once I get my hands on it, I'll be back to ask how to hook it
