    Yeah probably correct, I do believe FisherPrice does hold the rights to make Spongebob toys

    I'm sure using a generic 10k will get you within 3 or 4 deg, but then why bother with the thermistor in the first place? Making sure the thermistor matches the temperature-resistance map will get us within 1/2 deg over the entire range.

    There is lots of information of this, but this one briefly covers the basics.

    How many times did you have to fix the wires?

    It would be nice if someone could do a video of the SMAN3, the Testo 557 and the AK900 all side by side hooked up to a system. A nice comparison in real time would really help.

    I am looking for a second digital (have a 550) set but am waiting for the IDRSA, or SMAN4 (i think i heard its wireless somewhere).

    They built 'em better years ago.

    Fischer Price hadn't started building manifolds, yet.

    I have not had to fix the wires.... But I don't use the temp probes much. Most of the time I just use my cooper temp clamp with the display right on it...

    I'm sure I would do the same if I owned the Sman or testo, just easier for me to use my wireless clamp on.

    The 1200's cost alot more than the SMAN or Testo's at the time. But I wanted something that would last.... I didn't pay a cent for my 1250's. I won them in a contest.

    I can afford the Testo or SMAN 3, I just don't like pissing aways money.
