Hi,
A question : can you confirme the thread of the thermo-switch ?

Is it 3/8 NPT (conical) as rodney or M16 as WikiLec information ?

The Dickman switch fits correctly. Make sure you get the adapter wire / pigtail as the connection is different.

BTW, it is 3/8 PIPE thread, not 3/8 MACHINE thread

FYI, Rodney Dickman has posted on his site that his business is for sale. He wishes to retire, and looks like he wants someone to continue the business:

Seems like a cool business, if I knew anything about the rest of his market.

Is the idea with this fan switch that the fans come on at a lower temp? Seems like an easy investment to make
