      Ernie:That still looks like it would take a lot of time to get set up. I think the easiest way is to just hide a $20 thermocouple under a thin layer of refractory. I found a chart with pyrometric cones up to 3650 degrees F. I can get a 3000 degree one and see what the thermocouple is reading when the cone bends. That should get me in the ballpark without spending a lot of money. Thanks Carl

      Carl You could try making an optical pyrometer by using a 12 volt light bulb and vary the voltage so the filament glows the same as what you are measuring. You would still need to calibrate it against a known pyrometer
