    2 little things I've done with my LAM2 that helped me. The 1/4" drive socket adapter so I could use a ratchet instead of that goofy ball handle thing. And a wooden ball knob on the handle makes it more comfortable to use.

    Yes you can use a piece of your wire from the TC you have. You want a panel jack that's made for K type also. Will try and stick a picture in.

    No idea of a substitute but you can get a small tube from Radio Shack for a buck or two. It's a silicone base heat sink compound. I polished the base on my LAM2 and applied a thin coat of it and it made a definite difference.
