"My 85 year old Mother bought this to replace this exact thermometer! Now the Taylor 5458 has been something of a family heirloom for nearly 100 years. Believe it or not, the original is still going strong but the plastic has started to break and the numbers have faded over the years. Time for a new one! I'm not exactly sure of when this design first made its debut but it has stood the test of time. My Great Uncle was issued this thermometer by the national weather service sometime in the early 20th century. It has hung on the wall of my house since I can remember and I'm not nearly 60. Mom is so thrilled with the quality of this replacement that she is ordering four more for us kids! Do not be put off by the mercury separating during shipping. A few gentile taps on a hard surface and it all rejoins. There may have been a few very small lines in the mercury but this disappeared within 24 hours of use. Also, the internal metal high and low markers got stuck at the top of the glass and required a bit of persuasion with the magnet to pull down. None of these are a reason to turn away from the tradition and quality of this wonderful instrument! Bottom line: 1. It is as accurate as anything on the market. 2. It is time tested. 3. It is simple and easy to read (even for Mom who is legally blind) 4. It's a good price for the quality Buy it! You and your Mom will never regret it! :-)"
"I purchased my Taylor 5458 max/min thermometer to monitor the temperature. flucations in my green house. So far it is working well giving very accurate readings. When it arrived the Mercury had seperated in the column and had to be forced down By shaking it down. Otherwise this is the best max/min thermometer on the market today for the money."
"I found this product to be very accurate when compared against my NIST calibrated lab thermometer. The only problem was the shipping process resulted in the mercury separating. It was easily reunited though just by quick downward thrusts."
