I've got a problem for you ;-)

I have a sandstone (American aboriginal) Indian carving with a clock and a bi-metal (rotating pointer) thermometer in it.
I was able to find a replacement battery-powered clock mechanism.
But I've had no luck with replacing the bi-metal thermometer.
It's completely hosed... indicates 0 to +65 (F) when the real range was 40 to 65 F.
I was pondering an electronic replacement with some kind of low-powered indicator (such as the fuel gauges in old GM products).
Any ideas... design, procurement, etc.?
Thanks!

You might be able to replace the bi-metallic element. Try searching at www.thomasregister.com for the bi-metallic materials. I did this a few years ago when I was building a gift and they sent me ceveral free samples of the thermometer element. If still have the old one you might be able to match the size, temperature span, etc. for little or no cost.
What the heck...it couldn't hurt to ask!
Good luck,
Pete

Sure is! I use it for work all the time.
The Thomas Register has been around for years (old timers will know it as Tomcat). We used to advertise in it and so we got the print version for "free". In print form, it is about 20 volumes! It took up about 6 feet of shelf space! I was happy when they went on line.
