  2. Nice. They're great for checking grill temp and frying pans. They use them in racing to check tire temps too.

    You know what they say about the most toys. [​IMG]
     
  4. We have one to do just that alelover...they also work great to check each header tube if your motor has a miss ..the cylinder with the miss will be much cooler.

    Great score Craig...they come in handy!!!

    Nice---Great price.

    I got one years ago as a gift, so I could check the heat of my wood stove & chimney at different heights.

    Those things work great!

    Smokey (our kitty) loves chasing the little dot around too!

    Well, I guess that is the sad story.  At my age I would take mine to the bar to check the temp of the beer.

    They are a fun toy.  Be aware, though, that when a pan has oil in it, you will get some really wild temp readings.  They like surfaces that aren't real shiney. (I think I made up a word).

    Good luck and good smoking.

    LOL!!!

    When I first met Mrs Bear, I was wearing dress greens, and she came over to me & held a transistor radio against me. I couldn't figure out WTF she was doing????

    Then it started beeping, and I discovered it wasn't a radio, it was a "Stud Finder"!  [​IMG]

    They didn't have Laser Therms back then, but I could feel the heat !

    Looks like an excellent item to use when traveling with a trailer, to check the temp on the trailer brakes.....  some of those cities out there can do a J-O-B on 'em.

    They must have a west coast price.  It was 45. plus 4. shipping.  Still a great deal.

    I won't go near that stud finder thing.  At my age they would check me with a thermometer to be sure I am still alive.

    I'm sure they might not be as good, but those therms are available at Harbor Freight, and they are often on sale.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I got one on sale from Thermoworks a while back, I wouldn't be without it now!  It's absolutely the best for tempering chocolate, I check my grill and smoker temps, my kids foreheads, the dog, my drink...It's one of the funnest toys ever!!  I just keep finding more things to do with it.   Bear, glad she had one of those fancy stud-finders, the old fashioned way could have been painful, but I like the idea of the best girl in the room tapping all the guys with a hammer until she got to you... you are solid, indeed.
