By now, most of you are familiar with the “HeatStick” and the “Thermometer” infrared laser thermometers from companies like Amazon, Target, Lowe’s and Home Depot.
The HeatStick is the cheaper of the two, and you can buy one online for about $10.
But if you want to make your own, it’s a lot easier.
The best way to do it is to buy a 3D printed “Heat Stick” (which is basically a plastic tube and some adhesive) and attach it to a hot end with a heated end and a thermometer.
Make sure to get a hot, dry metal surface to hold the heated end.
The heated end should be a good distance from the metal, and that’s the temperature you want your thermometer to read.
Then, print out the diagram on a plastic piece of paper.
This will help you figure out how much heat you’re putting into the object.
Once you have your diagram printed, it can be cut and glued to the heat stick.
The paper is the ideal temperature to be used to heat the object, so that you can precisely measure how much the object is actually touching the heat source.
You can then measure the heat output.
For this example, we’re using an Amazon Prime 2 that has a temperature range of about 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
You could easily do this for a cheap metal object like a thermos or a coffee maker.
