There was a response that talked about 'wiring' to achieve a +/- 0.1C
control which is why I was asking!

Am quite aware that the needs are different - - - - I will be quite happy
I can reasonably create a +/-0.2C control in fact (for that other project).

Would you be up to some private questions?
(I am only at the start of this journey and am finding it more difficult
I would like finding unbiased information! (If there is such a thing - -

Thanking you for your ideas and your time!!!
