Heated bed kit v1.7 – laser cutted z-switch holder

This is a small upgrade of the heated bed kit compared to version 1.6.
I do believe I worked out all the caveats, and possible weak points of the design.

Heated bed controller

As almost all my previous buyer built a heated bed controller, and at least Bogdan have built one, nophead is using his brain controller to handle the heated bed temperature. So there left no choice, but build my own;-)

Heated bed v1.6 – Thermal insulating and more

It took me more time then I thought, but finally, I built my improved heated bed.

The initial test shows, the bed's temperature can go up to 164.3C, which is pretty hot:-)

(on the picture it only shows 148.7C, but it is because I already disconnected the transformers from
mains, so it already cooled for about 3-5mins.)
