    I've read of these things in the past, but find nothing on the B&H web site or on a couple of framing-supply company sites I've checked. Are these things still being manufactured?

    Yes, I know I could get a thermocouple and use it with a multimeter and conversion table, but I'd rather use the strips if they're available.

    Thanks, I didn't think of Omega! I was searching more photo- and frame-related sources.

    I use a regular thermometer and stick it into a custom-made piece of foam board, which I cut a cavity into to fit the thermometer.:wink:

    I have one of those infrared laser thermometers. I heat up the press, then quickly open it and measure where the print would be.

    Leave it to Ralph Lambrecht to come up with the most ingenious and simplest idea.
