Has any one used one of these to get the Actually temperature of the Nozzle.

Requesting accuracy information pertaining to this one HOLDPEAK 981C
though any information is better than none.

I've gotten decent accuracy with the one I bought from Harbor Freight. I just have to point the laser higher than the extruder tip.

Mine (Voltcraft something) does not work at all on the hotend parts of the printer. It shows around 50°C. I suppose the measuring area is too large (1" sweet-spot) and the reflecting metal doesn't really get picked up. It works more or less on my PEI build surface.
Can not recommend the Voltcraft thermometers. Maybe a real one does better (Bosch, Fluke or something)
Best regards,
Jonny
