I'm sick of overheating aluminium and getting hydrogen porosity. Since we don't have McMaster-Carr here in Europe, I am having a go at Raspers Thermometer (it is not a Pyrometer as it is not optical right?) using cheap parts.
I have already received the K-Type thermocouples from China. At €3.14 a piece, I ordered 4 to have spares.
The graphite rods came from the Ukraine. They also arrived yesterday, along with a Diamond grinding wheel for my Clarkson T&C grinder, and some diamond honing paste to hone my carbide scraper.
Instead of a Multimeter, I'll invest the €5 for a digital Thermometer Display.
