Default Re: Thermometer

I just picked up an Ashcroft analog thermometer on eBay for $25. It's a take-out from some industrial application (dial looks like new, but you can see the working end has been hot - actually came in it's OEM packaging from 50 years ago), probably monitoring flue temps or something. Any how, it's gas powered (has a little bulb on the end with about a 20 foot capillary tube going to the readout) and has a temp range of 400-1200F degrees in 10 degree increments. New they go for $5-600 and are rare as hens teeth in the second-hand market. Guess I got a deal on that one. I'm planning on putting it in the dome along with thermocouples. It just seems that it would be handy to have a continuous, non-battery way to read the oven temp.
