I am building the injection machine.
I have a question with the type k thermocouple.
My thermocouple at one end has a kind of bolt or screw … as seen in the following image
This screw should go between the tube and the band heater, but it does not fit, because the space is very small.
My question is if I cut this screw and leave the cable alone, will it work well? Will the temperature be well measured? or should not I cut this screw?
Thanks in advance
And sorry for the bad English, is not my native language
