rtk-mt6sm.jpgI needed a way to check the temperature of the chandelier I am building, uh, copying. I thought about using a oral thermometer, but that seems too low tech and I’ve always wanted a reason to purchase a RAYTEK MiniTemp MT6. This portable non-contact thermometer is one of the coolest tools I own. I found myself gathering temperatures of all my gadgets and surfaces in the house. Just point the MT6 at an object, press the trigger and a Class III laser point sighting lets you know which object or surface you’re getting a reading for. The results are instant… you can even “scan” the area and it takes an average. The backlit display even tells you the “max” temp that it registered. The MT6 can measure temperatures from -20 to blistering 932
