I have a limited supply of Type N Temp probes by Omega for sale.

These are the probes:  https://www.omega.com/en-us/temperature-measurement/temperature-probes/probes-with-integral-connectors/kqxl-nqxl/p/NQXL-116U-18

The specs say " For Use Up to 1335°C (2440°F)", but the rated process max temp is 1900°F, so they can get a little wonky above 1900.

These are new and in the original packaging. The probe is .062" diameter and 18" long. They come with the 2-piece molded connectors and associated connection devices/strain relief. They do not come with a lead wire or temp readout/controller. The typical wire lead is 24 ga.

These cost $46.69 + shipping from Omega. After checking postage rates for first class mail, I'm selling to ABS members for $30 each including shipping CONUS. Three or more for $25 each including CONUS shipping.

Email me for purchase details and additional photos: joshstates@ymail.com

I consider mine one of the most important tools in the shop.

I would not forge or heat treat without one - so I have a spare.

It's the smart blade smith who will buy these.
