Talk about an exact copy of my design. I'm not even sure I'd build these if I could sell them for that price.

Stainless steel mesh folded over a diptube? Yeah, that is your design...

That folded pyramid shape is something Bobby recently did a video "how to". I've seen a lot of tacos and quesadilla shaped ones but no other pyramids.

good point Scuba I will whip myself 10 times the next harvest moon... i do not have a plate chiller, but can fathom the disaster that would come about using the cheap stuff and following my advise, in this case of course.

Cheers, peace and all that shi$

No, that exact shape. I'm sure it's a coincidence.

Bobby- I just watched your video before seeing this thread....I thought for sure this was yours...

I wonder why someone would be getting rid of this?

I have no idea. I'd assume it was built specifically to sell but I could be wrong. Maybe it was built and then it didn't fit the kettle?
