Does Anyone Besides Me Use An IR Thermometer For Diagnostics?

Solid State | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
A friend had come over and brought along a dead/dying integrated amp for me to look at. He noticed that I had one of my IR thermometers lying on the bench, and asked why? I am a contractor, and use them for monitoring surface temperatures as applicable to calculating epoxy coating formulations and concrete mixtures, but I also keep one on my bench for tracking down failing SS components. It comes in really handy for tracking down "hot" or "cold" spots on the boards and heat sinks, which can be indicative of points of failures.

Of course, a DMM is your best friend, but I have tracked down quite a few "issues" (or at least got a decent start) with a simple thermometer. Just wondered if anyone else has ever used one for such a purpose?
