Sure am glad I paid for express shipping, looks like it will only take about a week for the USPS to get my stuff here >:(

Gonna be one of those things where it comes from Chicago and drives right by you to take a trip to Arizona and make a stop in Dallas before it gets to your house?

Probably.

I ordered a manual from Michigan once, left there, went right thru South bend, ended up in Indy, from there it made it out to California, then back to Michigan. Took about a month to get it, it seen more of the USA that I have.

Post Office needs to stick to delivering the mail and Playboys.

I ordered a blank plate for my skid steer off of amazon and it shipped from a a vendor a few towns away, and it took a week to get here. Had I known where it was coming from I would have driven there to pick it up! What a waste of time and money 💰

Yup. I used to rent Sea Doo and Tigershark watercrafts out for extra cash as a kid, maybe 19 or 20. As you can imagine they always came back broken, so I ordered a whole pile of consumables like sponsons, starters, impellers, etc from a guy on eBay on a Sunday night when 3 machines came back broken and all 5 of mine were rented out for the following weekend already so I needed the parts quick. Fast forward 2 days I'm getting nervous so I checked the tracking #, all my stuff was in Texas. The shipper lived 45 miles from me, in central MN. Needless to say I had some bad scrambles the next couple days trying to find 2 starters and a wear ring for '98 Sea Doo XP. Ended up driving halfway across the state and paying double just to get those things on the water by Friday. Stupid FedEx

Iíve always had good luck with with UPS, donít usually get stuff Fed Ex. USPS sucks for the most part. Only time we were supposed to get something DHL they lost a very rare part for a combine, called Combine World back, and got literally the last shaft in North America for that combine, told em absolutely no way were they to ship it DHL. About six months later UPS delivered the part that DHL lost.

On certain things I find UPS to be very expensive. SpeeDee is the cat's meow if it's within their range as they don't go nationwide, but often times FedEx is less than half the price of UPS. Small items go USPS every time and I've had real good luck with them myself, plus they're cheap, with small items. UPS seems to be fastest though. PexUniverse sends all their stuff FedEx and it always takes a week or more to get 1200 miles. Kinda drives me nuts

Most of the time if I order by 4pm from Supplyhouse UPS has it here the next day.

Yup! I just ordered from SupplyHouse this morning and got the shipped notification 45 minutes later. Gonna be here Monday. They're obviously closer, but most of the time is a 1-2 day delivery from them with UPS while FedEx from NY is over a week. Gotten plenty of stuff from the East Coast with UPS in 2-3 days

It all showed up today, still playing around with the wireless settings to see if I can get it to read shop temps in the back of the stove. I may have to add an outlet and a ethernet jack at the office window so the tag manager is looking directly at the stove. Didnít get a chance to mount the thermocouple in the stove either, I have a feeling itís going to be too short to get a honest reading. Spent way too much time today trying to hook up this monstrosity of an air handler only to find they didnít drain it near well enough when it was taken out of service. First was full of sludge, was hooked to a Woodmaster 5500 for who knows how long, had to take the air hose to get it loose as absolutely could not get the pump to prime, unhooked the return at the stove so all the muddy water wouldnít end up there, got a ton of black/brown water out then wondered why the flow wasnít better, half the water was going on the shop floor.

All four sensors are up and running, I have a fifth under the porch on the back side of a post.

I think Iíll have one tag for both Shop and House supply as they read identical on the gauges anyways. If I can get a signal out of the shop I may use the Shop supply tag to monitor the waste oil boiler water temp going into the flat plate.

The temp sensor is on the wee little circuit board of course so there is lag for temp changes to register, I plopped the tags right into a bed of thermal mastic, zip tied them into place, then wrapped with a foam insulation. I would prefer a foil faced insulation like I normally use on probes, but Iím sure that would kill the wifi signal, especially coming from the stove. In order to set the ones up for the boiler I had to leave the rear door open to get em to authorize and calibrate, once they are working theyíll still report temperature but you canít change any settings with the door shut.


Given the lag in readings I think to get em calibrated well a person needs no load on either loop for at least 30 minutes to allow temps to stabilize then calibrate the sensors.

Latest graph, some of it isnít usable as I recalibrated tags.
