Parts and Assembly
If you are using The Jeffrey PCB version 2.0 by Open Source Distilling you can use the below “Shopping List.”
Please note that in my build, The Jeffrey 2.0 did NOT need additional weights added in order to get to 25° in pure water when the battery was installed at the lowest position. That being said, the ability to add weights and move the battery is still available if needed to fine turn the tilt in pure water.
If you are using iSpindel PCB 4.0 by CherryPhilip you can find use my assembly video and parts list from my blog post. Please make sure you remove the diode from the D1 mini as this step is missing from the “iSpindel PCB 4.0 by CherryPhilip” video but should be considered a required step.
