when I order a thermocouple wire for doing oven profiles, it comes in a standard length of 36 inches, will there be any effects if I were to cut the wire down to 9 inches? Will cutting change the readings?

based on experience, no significant change.

How do you plan on fusing the wires back together ?

Cut the loose ends and not the couple?

The ones we use are sealed on the plug end.

you can use a thermocouple welder to fuse the wires back. as a matter of fact we use the welder to create thermocouple junctions. this is way less expensive that buying already formed thermocouple junctions.

Not to argue, but you can use a spot welder to fuse thermocouple wires, also.

Addressing the issue "Will cutting change the readings?" Very Very Doubtful.

Here is a link to a helpful guide.
