Since you're in California, the thin metal is okay....

Thanks in advance for your help.

for probes the hole just needs to be big enough to fish the probe through, be sure to deburr the hole,
and you can use some aluminum foil to seal it for on the cheap...I have also used a wine cork and drilled it through the center just big enough to fit the probe wire...also on the cheap...
