    I’ve noticed the (beta) MS guide referencing PT100 is hidden from view, and there’s no mention of them in the final version guide:

    https://e3d-online.dozuki.com/Item/Duet_PT100_Daughter_Board

    Should i just drill a hole for it, or ”hang” one each off the two extra holes above the SSR holes?

    Also, haven’t unpacked the wiring look box yet - does it contain the PT100 daughterboard cables or do i need to roll my own?

    Yep - I remember that step not being very obvious!

    Also, if you don't want to cut off the plugs on the cables, just use jumper pin pairs, clamp them into the PT100 boards and that way you have a removable solution for the plugs that come crimped by default.

    neat idea

    I used pins from these type things:

    Just mash the black stuff to end up with a couple of stand-alone pins. Push fit (don't push too far), then these screw in nicely to the daughterboard. Then you can just pull/push to fit remove, as with the jumpers.

    Exactly these, I just pushed the black things more towards the middle with some pliers, works wonderfully.

    Hmm. That would a lot of hassle. What on earth possessed me to separate them ?!
