    I am reluctant to do full build documentation for this one, as it involves 240vac. However there are many tutorials on YouTube, and if anyone wants a complete write up on my build, I certainly can do one...........

    !WARNING! PC POWER SUPPLIES CAN STILL GIVE YOU A NASTY SHOCK, EVEN WHEN TURNED OFF AND DISCONNECTED FROM THE POWER POINT!
    This MOD was done completely from parts I found in my shed, so cost = $0.00. The only things I had to buy were the Magnetic Stirring Bars and some Glass Beakers.
    Parts used:
    1 x old pc power supply with fan - found in shed
    1 x old PC fan speed controller - found in shed
    1 x miscellaneous LEDs and Resistors - found in shed
    1 x piece of perspex - found in shed

    Over the past few years, I've experimented with a variety of methods to assist with our DIY juices. This isn't one of them although I see the appeal and I know it works. Lately, I've put away the Crock Pot, the Ultrasonic Cleaner and use a modified shaker plate and good ole time in the dark cupboard.
    The obvious issue with this method is patience yet, I believe the natural way is the best approach but then again, what do I know...

    I failed Chemistry, it wasn't my fault. I didn't hire her. Mrs Preston endeavoured to instill a sense of curiosity in us and how we could get into Chemistry.
    I, on the other hand, was only interested in getting into her pants.
