DIY PH Meter

I was wondering if there is anyone in the forum who has any idea on how to produce a digital PH meter. I have extensive electronics background and have access to high relyability soldering stations at work. As you can tell I am cheap. I have also been wondering if the PH meters used to measure the pH of soil will work to measure water PH

Thankyou for at least looking at this thread. Obviously quite a few of you are looking into making a cheap reliable ph meter. Well from the research I have conducted I have located a web site. This web site is not for the faint of heart however. If you dont understand electronics or have an advanced POET(performance orientated electronics training) course this site may as well be in a forign language. So here it is www.lce.org/equipment/phmeter/phmeter.html enjoy and if you have any questions about the electronics feel free to ask by posting here asking me a question. Have fun

Well construction has begun, I have purchased all the parts nessary and it cost me a wopping 30 dollars including a deal on the digital display. I will post picks of my progress later as it may take me a few weeks to construct in my lunch hours at work.
