Heres an accurate surface probe http://www1.mscdirect.com/cgi/NNSRIT...-SearchResults
1/4 the price and reads temperature, not emitted IR :)
213 F sounds about right - thanks!
Likewise ... thanks on the surface probe vs. IR... I just ordered a surface probe!
I don't own an IR gun and ... don't think I'll buy one ...
Astolfo - I'm just guessing, but yeah I would think that if the carbon fiber part is going to be attached to (or even better yet) spaced slightly away from the bottom of the stator cover that 400-degree resin should be fine.
I'm curious - Is the higher temp. resin more expensive? Harder to work with?
