Re: ET-732

I recently got an ET-732 and was thinking of taking a pair of heavy-duty pliers and crimping down the part of the probe (where it's crimped originally) that is too big to fit through the eyelets. Anyone try this?

I went ahead and took the pliers to the 732 probe. Fits through the eyelet fine now, although it does take a bit of the crimp off of the wire. Pulled on the wire a bit to see if it made it loose and didn't seem to make a difference. I guess time will tell.

Re: ET-732

You can get high temp shrink wrap from a electrical supply place to secure the wire to the probe. Not sure if it would fit threw the hole after that. Just a thought. Take a look here. http://cableorganizer.com/heat-shrink/
I think I'll order this http://cableorganizer.com/vypar/xtreme-tape/#features I have a few wireless Nu-temps (that I never use any more) They are a pain in the ass to replace batteries with them. (damn tiny screws) Plus no on/off switch,so they go dead fast.

That's a good idea, I use that stuff all the time on the boat. Seems like if you torch it just to the point before it burns it hardly adds any to the diameter if at all. Might even help it be a bit more water resistant.
