Okay, so there are five tools in the bottom part of the case. I’m numbering them with 1 being the tool nearest the hinges, and the 2-5, across the latch side.
I’ve already essentially identified tool 4 as the Fluke multimeter (at least down to one or two versions).
But, when I was looking at pictures of that found item again, something else stuck out. Fluke makes an IR thermometer that looked really close in shape and detail to tool 5. If you look at this image showing it’s side profile, you can see what I mean.
Note the curving handle, vertically divided. The angles of the “head”. The shape of the darker grey detail at the front of the head. I can find corresponding details on the Fluke Mini IR Thermometers.
If you look really closely at the screencap, there might even be a hint of the trigger visible, at the top of the grip near the head.
Now, what threw me is not the color difference. It’s the front of the handgrip. There are 3 raised ridges. I can’t find a Fluke that has that. They either are smooth or have more than three ridges.
But the later images from the episode show the tool out of it’s foam cutout and it confirms enough that I’m positive it’s the same…general tool.
Here you can see the shape of the screen bezel.
This image shows a hint of what might be a red trigger.
The Fluke units, in addition to a yellow body, tend to have a green trigger. But, I found very similar IR thermometers with different colors and branding. Although there are others, it seems that the most common alternate brand is Raytek. Raytek might even be the originator of the device, and are licensing it to others. Not sure about that; have to research it more. But importantly, Raytek makes a version that is two-tone gray with a red trigger.
That seems like more than a coincidence. So, it’s a good chance that the prop hasn’t been entirely repainted. However, that handgrip is smooth, without ridges. And I can’t quite tell if those diagonal grooves on the head are on the prop. Doing some searching, I can find ridges (too many), but not that style head without grooves.
Unless someone can find a version with a matching handgrip, I’m going to conclude that was altered for the prop. But which version did they start with?
So, that’s where I’m at on it. If anyone has some insight into this, I’d be interested in hearing it.
