      Timer/thermometer/clock  Bookmark   

ran across this while looking in a world's foremost outfitters catalog sounds like it might have some uses for swim......
this timer incorporates a thermometer and clock all in one easy to use unit the thermometer utilizes a large LCD readout to display the inner temperture.

It has a range of 14 .f to 392.f with a high /low and inside the range programable alarm to alert you when you have reached your desired temperture .

also has a 24 hr countdown timer and countup stopwatch that can be used independently. 

It has a 36 inch stainless steel probe and wire... runs on a single AAA battery .. runs about 25 US dollars .

 would the stainless probe be ok to use ?

It depends on what you are going to dip it in. Stainless is not good in very acidic or basic solutions.

(Rated as: Good Explanation)

Put the probe into a xmall glastube(closed at one end) like an NMR tube or something like that. a drop off oil into the glasstub will do the heathtransfer. Works greath (and when you break the glass you throw it away)
