Default Big favour required from a member in the USA

Big favour required from a member in the USA.

I was going to buy the indoor thermometer for US$20 from the Forum Bravo store but the postage was going to be US$150 .

They want A$100 for the same thermometer here in Oz for some reason?

Is there anyone willing to buy and ship this to me in OZ, I can deposit money in a PayPal account.

I haven't mailed your mason's toys yet, let me see if I can find one local. What is the high temp you want?

Hi Tom.
Any where really in the high range 500, 600, must have centigrade though, I cant do Fahrenheit anymore..

I really appreciate your effort.

Brickie,
An oven thermometer from Big W costs around $7 and is calibrated to about 325C but will go higher (off the scale) They are made from stainless and work extremely well for roasting and baking. Just place it inside your oven. It measures the temp where you want it. I tried a thermometer in the door and found it to be rather inaccurate in that it read rather lower than the temp in the centre of the oven. Also the probe sticking out on the inside is prone to damage when moving the door in and out frequently.

Brickie,

I brought a 200mm probe thermometer for my door 12 months ago online for $15.20 + $7 postage from Reliance Pacific in NSW. It only goes to 400'C but it has never got close to that when I put my door on. I normally put my door on after a couple of hours after making pizza when the fire has died down and the thermometer goes up to about 350'C.

Here is the web link to the one I bought 200 mm Short Probe Wood Fired and Gas Pizza Ovens Thermometer - Reliance Pacific
