    New Lyman lead thermometer, anybody have one?

    I`m unsure if I want to spend $30 for the Lyman new lead probe thermometer. Does anybody have one and if so what do you think of it?Robert

    I have two.The first one didn't work.I called Lyman customer service and they shipped out a replacement the same day.The second one worked fine.I tried the thermocouple from the good one on the bad one and it worked as well.I obtained a replacement thermocouple for the bad one.They work well.I have compared the reading from a Lyman Mag25,the two digital thermometers,and a Brownells analog thermometer and they within a a degree or two of agreeing.

    I have a Lyman and it seems to work well. I really don't care how accurate it is as far as exact temp. I use it as a reference. That is...I know at what temp. a certain boolit casts well at out of a particular mold according to the thermometer. Whether it is 675 or 700. I keep track of what the thermometer read. It seems pretty consistent.
