Thanks Dan - I have a McMaster catalog here somewhere - might be 
misplaced in the move. I will look it up. I know there is another 
company that just does thermal sensing but I can't think of it.

The stains become a warning.

Tom -
I second J.W.'s suggestion (www.omega.com).
The products they carry are almost all made by other companies, Omega just 
puts their brand name on them and charges a premium. But their greatest 
strength is that they have assembled a broad collection of products across 
numerous functional areas related to measurement and control.
If you just want one or two of something, and don't want to search all over 
for it, they are a great solution provider. I use them frequently for small 
quantities.

By the way,
Of the dozens of probe types out there, what should I be using for a
Stircrazy/Sunpentown roaster? Right now, I'm using the K-type insulated wire
probe with a bare wire tip that came with my Fluke 51. I run the wire
through the side of the sheet metal spacer cylinder, and bend the wire so
the tip stays more or less in the bean mass. The indicated temperature
bounces around quite a bit though, within about a 10 degree range. Is that
to be expected? I generally get to first crack at about 390, and second at
about 420.
Thanks in advance for your advice,
Donn Milton
