Raytek make a little device for checking the temperature of anything without actually touching the device y our checking. This is a good thing because you don’t have to burn the temperature checker. I have always wanted one of these but can’t really justify buying it except it would be cool to walk around pointing this at all kinds of things to see what the temperature is. You may have a great use for this, if so let me know.
