Damn don't know how you've pulled that off! Nice.

+1 for the 501st

Dropped mine on the floor after putting it in the case, (bottom fell out of the case sending my hydrometer to the floor.) Stupid me.

How do you know me?

I've broken 2 so far. The first, I knocked off the counter. The second, I dropped it in the tube it came in, and the bottom broke out.
