    I checked. Paterson makes what looks like a very nice spirit thermometer, 9 inches long, glass. I hate glass anything.

    I prefer my dedicated film developing metal thermometer with glow in the dark face. Need to get like 3 more and send em out to be calibrated. Works better than my glass one.

    To me, they always looked a bit Klingon in origin...

    What they offer is two mercury thermometers, a 9-inch one intended for B&W and a 12-inch one with a longer scale intended for color.

    The listing on B&H says mercury which has been banned in the EU for years, they are colored liquid spirit thermometers, still a pain.
