  Thermometer source?
From: SNALICE at aol.com on 1997.05.09 at 08:12:18(730)
Hello Aroiders,
I am looking for several types of thermometers. I would like one that
records the highest and lowest temps for the day, and another one with a 50'
wire so I can keep an eye on my greenhouse temp from the house, and some tiny
ones that can be put inside seed pots under glass. Does anyone know of a
source for one or all of these types? If anyonw can help, please e-mail at:

Radio Shack has just the thing - an indoor/outdoor/maximum/minimum
electronic thermometer. It shows current temperature in two places and
retains the max and min until you reset it. The lead is only about ten
feet, but it should be simple to splice in a piece of wire. Runs about
thirty bucks but frequently on sale for half that.

I have two of them and use them to fine tune indoor microclimates -
windowsill vs the middle of the room, bulkhead vs cellar temps, floor vs
hanging plants, etc. In an old house, there can be a significant difference
in a few feet.

Thank you, Duane!
I do have one of Radio Shack's thermometers, but it doesn't hold the
highest and lowest temps. I never looked further than this one. It has a
10' lead too, and I was wondering if it could be extended, but until you're
suggestion, it hadn't clicked. I suppose you would just clip it, extent the
end to where you want it, and add wire inbetween. Good idea! My house is
old, and drafty too, so I know what you mean there.
Thank you,
Sue
