- Jul 31, 2004Hi guys,
I built Dan Hartmans improved furnace w/ his dimmer control, but would
like to build a temp control or at least a thermometer to moniter it.
I've seen several K type thermocouples (mostly probes for digital
thermometers), but few seem to go up to 1800*F or so.
what type have you had luck with (bead, air probe, special)?
Will I need to sheild or insulate it (have seen ceramic beads on some)?
Where can I buy one, or better scrounge a suitable unit?
P.S. The furnace works well, I use 6kw Kenthal type electric (space
heating) furnace elements. $8 new.
