Any reason reason you just don't replace the Dallas chip? They're easily
available and if the original is soldered, put a chip socket in instead and
make it a plug in. Granted they run $20 to $28 but then many other older parts
still being made are a lot more out of sync in price, but needed to keep the
old iron running.
