Grill Element:

Physical characteristics:

The grill element is made of a 5 cm length of brass channel stock.
A K type thermocouple wire is soldered in a hole drilled at the center of the piece of brass channel.
The heater element is made of 30 AWG nickel chromium wire by Consolidated Wire Associated Companies of Chicago Illinois apparently no longer in business.
The Tefzel jacket is stripped off  28 AWG copper wire by Vector (W28-6AS) that is apparently no more available, but seems to be very similar to the Vector W28-6A available from Mouser as P/N 574-W28-6A.
