Temperature measure

Hey guys, quick question about the temperature measure Type K. I’ve got the one in the picture below, which is actually relatively big. Can I just strip off the metal ‘bolt’ so that I end up with wire only, like Dave has in the videos? Would be easier to get it in place with the band heaters. But I’m not sure if I can do that just like that, or will it break the measuring mechanism?

Hi Faro,

yeah you can pull the bolt part off, but be carefull.
Within the metal braid there are two wires, the tips are connected and be carefull not to break that connection.
Than it should be fine!
Good luck 🙂
