    Can anyone point me in the direction of where to get a dial type thermometer for monitoring mixed water temperature in Melbourne or Australia? I'm looking to have it mounted on the mixed water pipe. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Shane. Just what I was after.

    Your pinhole images are some of the best I have seen. Great work.

    Regards

    I would be very tempted to purchase a Tel-Tru dial thermometer.

    Basically if you can see the dial, you can see it accurately. I have one and wouldn't run a darkroom without one. Whilst I can see the nice things about electronic thermometers, batteries are a pain to live with.

    I bought mine in Melbourne in the Braeside area about 22/23 years ago. They are certainly available as they are used by some manufacturers who monitor water and/or fluid temperature and also in the food industry, which Moorabbin (an adjoining suburb) has many food processing plants.

    Do a search using Tru-Tel first to see what they are about, then do the same search but with pages from Australia only.
