    Does anyone know what kind of probe the compensating timer uses? This is the instrument that monitors developer temperature and adjusts its counting rate so you always get the same amount of development. I've searched around here and on the Large Format forum, and while I've found much discussion of this unit, including adjustment instructions, no one seems to talk about the probe itself.

    Thx.

    You might start here: http://www.vernier.com/probes/temperature.html

    Finding one with a RJ-type plug might be tough. If you can find out which of the four connections is which, you could probably get a computer shop to attach a connector,or you could build your own adapter with a phone cable.
