    Can the TC-K6 thermocouple be mounted in the bottom of the pot? Immersed in lead?

    It has 1/4-20 threads.

    And to answer my own question, yes it will leak.

    It's not designed for that application. Weld a nut to the bottom of the pot and screw it into it so the TC bottoms out against the base of the pot

    I like this idea but lack a welder. Would JB weld work this application? I know there are all sort is variants of it. Just wondering if it would hold up to the heat and pressure.

    I haven't investigated the bottom of the Lee pot for a bottom mounted TC, but I would think it would be thin enough for mounting via a "through hole", with a nut on the inside.

    I wouldn't trust any JB weld or epoxy, unless it was rated for 1000 F continuous.

    You would need a well if your gonna drill thru the bottom as it will always leak.
