How to Read a Recipe
Hello. I purchased mine through eBay. The slow cooker/crock pot does not need a circulator, as it heats the whole base evenly.
I made one using a slow cooker (crock pot) and an accurate temperature controller from China. Cost of the temperature controller, less that £10.00 UK. I see the cost of the Anova is £169.00!
Just one thing to be careful of. Do not put your finger through the bearing centre. If the bearing seizes during spinning your finger could be SERIOUSLY damaged. This is not a criticism, just a bit of advice.
Now. That is a great idea.
I wonder how many 'New Year Resolutions' you are going to destroy with this?

Actually my description could have been better. The finished circular mat is really more of a 'spiral' than a circle. But I hope it helps you make the circular ones.
We use to make mats like this when I was at junior school nearly 70 years ago. We did not need to make a frame as we made circular ones.
We used to make mats like this using raffia and string when I was at junior school nearly 70 years ago.
I don't have any pictures. But. The construction starts by winding a couple of turns of raffia around the end of the string. This end is the folded to form a very small circle but with the covered end laid alongside and inside the the forming circle. Then a couple of turns of raffia are made around both sections of string to hold them together using a large needle (sack needle). A couple more turns of raffia are made around the INNER next section of string only. Then a couple of turns of raffia are made around both pieces of string to hold that section together. This sequence continues until you have the round mat of your choice. A good example to look at are the 'woven style' baskets yo often see in Arabic countries.

A nice use for the piece of old railway line.
Welcome to Bread
It is easy to do. Buy a cheap temperature sensor/controller on eBay and place it between the power socket and the crock pot. Set the crock pot to 'high' and let the sensor control the temperature.
That is the one I used. I also made a 'Bread Proofer' out of a seed propagator and a fish tank heater using one.
I made a sous vide cooker using a crock pot (slow cooker) and a cheap temperature controller (£10.00) from china. No need o go to all the trouble of making wiring circuits etc. It works brilliantly. I have been using it for 2 years.

Will this hack work with a Fuji compact camera?
Nice looking box. But how much does it weigh? It looks quite a load to carry any distance.
