Default New mash paddle

Todays project was to make a new mash paddle that was long enough that i can get the bottom of my MT without burning my hands. Here it is. Im gonna square off the business end, but im not sure how wide i want it. Im wondering if anyone has some dimensions handy of their paddle and if they like it.

Haha, naw, got a keg MT. I guess i should state i plan on knocking 1.5" off each rounded edge so that the width is more like 4 inches instead of 8". Just wondering what most people find to be a good size paddle for a keg MT.

Here it is, all done. Still pretty massive for a keg MT, but im sure it will work ok and it will be big enough for my 1bbl brewery im gonna build.

One day....

Looks much more usable now. What's that 5"X4".

Havn't measured it but that sounds about right.
