>? Thoughts [calibrating/ed thermometers ????]

You can always stick it up your a---. Should
be 98.6 +-.

Fever thermometers are accurate to +- .2 degrees
and make good calibration standards: put both
thermomters in hot water in a styrofoam cup -
keep the water gently stirred.

Only color photography is sensitive to
temperature, and that gets processed at 100
same as body temperature: they are both organic
chemistry.

B&W is a +-2 F game, and you only need
to have a repeatable temperature and the ability
to read the deviation to +-10%. A grossly
inaccurate thermometer will do as long as
it is linear.

Temperature calibration is tough to do with
great accuracy. A triple-point ice cell is
the only common temperature reference.

If you would rather have someone else calibrate your
thermometer:

Or buy a 'Kodak Color Thermometer' or 'Kodak Process Thermometer' on
ebay and be as Alfred E. Neumann: "What, me worry?"
