It wasn't me. I won the Fluke hat about a year ago. What I like about the 561 is being able to use infrared for quick general temps and also have the option of plugging in the probe for more accurate oven/frig temps.

What part number are you talking about, W10565140?

I think W10565140 is just the number of the service pointer.

Well you for sure would not be able to use a infrared thermometer to adjust the oven temp as you would have to open the door every time you used the IR to take a temp reading.

As for the dial thermometer I think they are to slow and not the most accurate.

I use a K type probe with the tin foil method as describe in the service pointer. The K type probe plugs into my Fluke 16 Multimeter.

The Fluke 561 IR that MajorApp has also let you plug in a K type temp probe.

The Fluke 902 clamp on amp meter I would like to get also lets you plug in a K type temp probe.

As a side note I have used my IR to take a quick reading on the back of the oven wall after a pre heat just to see if the temp is close to start with, but for any adjustment I use my multimeter with the K temp probe and the tin foil method that is described in the service pointer.

I have owned two. One while in hvac and got rid of it when I got rid of that job. I recently purchased my newest one for $90 brand new off CL. Its amazing. Could you describe the tin foil method? Thanks! :D

I carry the Fluke 902 everyday and love it! There is only 1 feature I don't like. When testing some thermistors, the 902 can't display the reading accurately. My Fluke 116 takes care of that issue. We can't have everything I suppose.

Merry Christmas!
 I new here. This is my first post. I realize this is a very old thread, but no post with the name tools in it can go unanswered by me.

  I read the long post about people who ask your advise and then never say thanks or let you know how it went. You can count on me to be grateful. I am about to ask advise but there will be follow up.
 And I will be happy to lend any tool advise, especially in the realm of hand tools. I have been collecting restoring repairing and making tools from scratch for some 40 years now. 
 
Mostly, new tools suck! There are only a few new tools you could give me for free!
People made tools you can be proud of for hundreds, even thousands of years. Most stuff you see now is dirt bog minimal, in my opinion. Even the great Snap-on is going into the crapper as I write.

 I am a toolmaker. Doing what I can to keep toolmaking alive and in high style.
 I built this fire ax for my local Fire Department this year. I built it to commemorate...

  Those who came before us, and those who will come after, and us too.
    
  Its tool steel and carved Ipe wood, one of the hardest woods there is.

  My current tool wish list includes a good clamp meter like many of you. I need a replacement for my old Milwaukee 3/8" holeshooter. I want an older one in fine condition. The new ones are lacking. 
 I also want a P&C 1/4" "open" ratchet in mint condition. Peterson and Carlsberg made fine tools in Milwaukee Oregon up until around WW11.  That makes them kind of local to me, since I live near the Oregon border. 

  For a picture, here is my working 1/4" socket set. Its a steel, leather covered case

 Fitted out for vintage S&K and Craftsman sockets. Snap-On, Craftsman, Proto, Williams are just a few of the names represented in this box. These are tools a man can count on.
   

 Thanks for listening and again Merry Christmas to all
 yours Scott
