hey Brice-
I had talked to Duralite about this myself a few years back but
never took the time to pursue it. do you have the specs for
these 11 ga elements? how many ohms each, what's the
outside diameter? I grooved my brick at 3/8" and I'm
curious if your new ones would fit my unit. I had 9 sets of
grooves in my melter to start out but I lost the bottom set
from overfilling early on so now I have 8 and use them all
in my current set up. Also how much are they from duralite?

I'd be happy to try to help you set up the SSR. It was easy
and I picked mine up surplus. you need a controller that can
talk to them, switched dc output, they are available on ebay
and maybe someone here know if those inexpensive fuji
controllers can be set up like that . I would think so.

On my controller you tell it the percentage of power output,
( I use 80 ) and the switching time, I think mine goes every
second, 8 tenths on, 2 off.
