Lost my laptop charger

I dithered a bit, and then enabled by HL, thought maybe changing the pipes could work. And I do like a towel radiator....

I tell a slight lie - setting the controls to "min" gets -38, setting to "max" gets -42. Although some google results suggest that -38 is correct? ...

My old faithful upright freezer has decided that -38C is the correct and proper temperature
