Definitly. Are you an electronically literit person? Do you know how to make a simple circuit that when on reads the temperature from a K type probe and shows it on a either LCD or one of those single digit (would have to be then stacked for 3 digits worth)/

See if you can make one capable of taking 8amps worth of fans. I've been looking for a decent wattage fan controller for ages
