For the past 5 years, I've been the proud owner of a Miss Silvia, temperature surfing for my daily espresso(s!).  Always interested in PID-ing the machine, I'd read up on Murph's PID Page (www.murphyslawonline.com/silvia.html) and other similar resources but didn't know of a reliable supplier of Canadian PID kits.  Well, I found one and thought I should share.

www.dinicoinc.com has a great little kit.  The shipping in Canada is pretty cheap and the unit is reliable.  I've attached a pic of the finished product.  In addition to the kit from Dinico, I bought a plastic project box from a local electronics supplier.  Following Murph's instructions worked well.  You can find the kit on eBay at

I'll take this opportunity to both add to my post count (from 1 to 2!) but also to ask the question of the board admins, would this type of post be considered a no-no in the probationary period? (I ask as I was considering posting the 'coffee shops in Providence' thread but thought I should wait until after post 5).

That said I am unaware of the Canadian situation, but I think MLG and Auber (and espresspartsNW and a host of others) ship all over.

Trevor - wanted to ask what other parts you had to purchase?  It seems like with that kit, you'd need a box as well as a few more wires, at least for the relay, and maybe some connectors...

Mike, Powderturns, welcome to CG.

Looks like you have an interest in PID.  You may wish to start your own thread as this is a couple years old.  What do you want the PID to do?  Boiler idle temperature, pre-infusion, steam??  What is your electrical experience with small wiring, soldering or crimping?  You can start another or leave it here if you wish.  OP looks like only one post logged on last in 2011, though may be reading.

I assume that you read the referred Murphy Page

http://www.murphyslawonline.com/silvia

Less expensive PID controllers are available.

Auber ships to Canada and I bought one of their PID's for my Silvia, very happy with it. Clearly you're passed the point of ordering something though.

Very cool. I checked it out for curiosity's sake. It's a bit cheaper direct from Auber but with shipping and fees probably amounts to close to the same price in the end. Shipping didn't cost much. It's nice to have a Canadian source indeed.
