    That indicates that you have two thermometers that agree closely. Whether or not those points of agreement is, are fact, the CORRECT temperature, appears to be up for grabs.

    I know there is a pot that regulates the temperature of the water flowing from the circulation pump into the water bath, and that would be set one degree - or so - HIGHER than the "dial temperature", as I've said, to compensate for heat losses in operation. You COULD perform surgery on the Control Unit to try to find that pot.

    The E-6 1st & color developer require 38°C ± .3°C
    - And in the CCP-2, the temperature regulation solenoid and heating coil activate at +/- 0.3C above or below the "set" temperature.

    I am fully aware of what the Manufacturers claim to be "necessary". Over the years, I have processed E-6, C-41 (I STILL have an Anscochrome Processing Kit - from the '60's), - a variety of other stuff, - inadvertantly at the wrong temperatures.
    I TRY to be precise (uniformity is more important than accuracy), but I've never really had a problem with temperature.
