    Measure the temperature of molten lead

    When casting lead I like to know the temperature of the material.
    I added a thermometer to the lead pot. While the thermometer is not
    in the lead directly, it is close enough to the bottom of the pot to give
    me a good reading of the temp in the bottom of the pot. It is not in the
    molten material but just under the iron pot and inside the outer cover.

    Works great.

    Cheers, JR
