Default gauges.

Luis, thankyou.. I put the type k thermocouples in today. Any idea what the other thermocouple I posted a picture of is? Could I use the thermocouple assembly for the dome, using type k wire? Do you or anyone know what analog options there are for temperature gauges? I'm imagining some cool antique clockface gauges for the prep area. What pieces of machinery used gauges that read temps up to 1000?

The thermocouples have the type identified by the color of their wires.

As you could see in the picture in the last answer, the K type thermocouple is identified by red and yellow wires and the corresponding type to the red and blue wires is the T type.

All the thermocouples works same, being different types to different temperature curves.

The different thermocouple types do not match between them and you could not use an instrument to measure any type if it is made to work with another type.

Or, eventually, you could live doing math to correct the measure error, if you have not another option.

Please, consult www.omega.com . There is a lot of information there!

There are a lot of commercial analog gauges that you could use.

And even a little flour on the hearth is gonna show you your desired temperature target J
