    105 degrees F is 40.5555 degrees C. I think all you can really do is set it to 40 and hope the half a degree doesn't throw things off too much.

    The instructions also list times form lower temps, use that. But you would be better off using the Tetenal kit, which uses 38C just like traditional e6. Most importantly, it also includes the critical stabilizer, which arista omits. Otherwise, your slides will begin to color shift in a few months, and eventually, fungus and mold will destroy them.

    The Sprint stab end rub bath costs 10$ or so, and the 1 L bottle will last for thousands of rolls.
