Ok, a quick recap for this thread for those who are new to it.
The thread started because someone was selling an original PCB kit that Matho was selling a while ago. The thread was titled ‘Bonjuino and Matho’s Controller $30’. The first half page or so of posts in this thread are about that.

Phase 2: The Thread Morphs: It turned out other people were looking for kits for Matho’s controller as well. Lael was looking for one and ended up organising to buy a set for people. Over time he did a bunch of kits. The second half of the first page of posts up to around page 22 are about that.

Phase 3: Lael decided to upgrade the kit and he is now organising a pre-built PCB kit. This includes a pre-built PCB, Arduino Mega, screws, nylon standoffs, button cables etc so you don’t need to solder at all, neutrik style power connectors, power supply, a pre-cut case, heatsink, SSRs (to allow controlling 2xheating elements), thermal paste, temp probe, buzzer. You will need to wire up the controller for 240v. Which means you will need to have it wired / certified by an electrician to ensure you don’t kill yourself. Page 23 – present are about the new kit and a list to add yourself to if you want to get in on the buy. At around page 35 it was decided to make the thread title more representative of the thread itself and this explanation was added to the first post.

Brief description of what the controller is for: (from: http://aussiehomebre...4#entry1197202)
[SIZE=10.5pt]It is a control kit called a Brauduino - commonly used for controlling a 1V recirculating system similar to a Braumeister. I've been thinking about how to improve the setup and make it more automated. I'll post that in another thread. The controller controls a pump and a heating source. How you configure that doesn't really matter. Realistically you could control up to a 2 vessel system (HLT and mashtun) with it. The logic and design isn't designed for a 3V at the moment, and the problem with trying to control a3v system is that people have to be ok with a single design - or change the code to suit themselves. To be honest... a lot of people move 'back' to a Brau style 1V from 3V for the convenience, great efficiency and ease of cleaning. There are not too many reasons I would consider going 3V.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=10.5pt]Here is one system that someone has just completed: http://aussiehomebre...rrah-braumiser/http://aussiehomebrewer.com/topic/81183-copper-and-jarrah-braumiser/[/SIZE]
[SIZE=10.5pt]Here is my system: http://aussiehomebre...-2#entry1118669http://aussiehomebrewer.com/topic/72377-laels-braumiser-build/page-2#entry1118669[/SIZE]
[SIZE=10.5pt]And this is what the completed controller from the kit I am organising will look like: http://aussiehomebre...21#entry1184680http://aussiehomebrewer.com/topic/69155-bonjuino-and-mathos-controller-30/page-21#entry1184680[/SIZE]

[SIZE=10.5pt]If you are having trouble with your matho's controller build – please post in: http://aussiehomebre...view=getnewpost [/SIZE]

If you would like to get on board and get a kit – add yourself to the list here: http://aussiehomebre...view=getnewpost

To be clear – this is all possible because of forum member - matho – who did an amazing job creating a brilliant brewing controller. Anyone who has one will tell you it is their best bit of brewing kit. The code has been further extended by MaxN68, to enable saving of recipes, cool timing features, iodine tests etc. If you get a chance – send a message of thanks to them!

I still haven't made any progress with my system whatsoever, but I'm hopeful that it will happen one day, so I'll keep mine.

ok -Steve was kind enough to post the parts list for a single kit so I'm thinking about doing an order of the PCB's and kits but need to get a number of ppl to post interest. 10 ppl max

Assuming so far:

Lael - 1
rafinus - 1
bigandhairy - 1

rafinus and bigandhairy - can you confirm? I'll go ahead if we get 10 total...
