    Coffee contains pseudo-tannins. They taste like tannin, but you can't actually tan leather with
    them. They represent about the last 20% of the solids that can be extracted when brewing a
    normal cup of...

    Lubricate the cutting process as often as possible.Continuous lube is best.Have a friend squirt
    oil on the bit, as you cut.

    HiGreenlee punches are the other alternative for doing this. They aren't perfect, but most
    people have pretty good luck with them.BobProblem is, you have to start them with a hole.

    many feet that coil is.Hmmm...I'd say dial it back & find your sweet spot.It's still probably
    somewhere p...

    I'm not an engineer, but I am a mechanical designer with a structural background.2x2x1/8 is
    definitely overkill.You can get away with 1.25x1.25x11 ga.I'm tempted to model it up & do FEA,
    but I don't h...

    Wow, worked like a champ.Now I wonder if I should reverse my 'non-leaking' kettle.I also forgot

    what stops your liquid flow from going towards your filter when you pump out of the HLT/BK.You
    may want to a...
