Is their any wiring junctions in the thermocouple leads?, if you extended the leads with copper wire every additional junction will contribute to/subtract from the thermocouple output.

I bought k type thermocouple wire off ebay. I cut a length, twisted the two wires together on one end and was good to go. It is very accurate with my PID. Cheap, too. I put mine in a thermowell made of copper tubing with one end soldered shut.
