just an update...

i picked up a couple 1" stir bars (vs. the 2" bar I was using before) and these work so much better.

My control over the speed via the rheastat is much improved (im able to very the depth of the vortex well) & the its so easy to get the stir bar started and it never gets thrown. Much much improved.

Definitely building one of these this weekend. It will save me so much on DME, it will pay for itself in 3 months! Don't know why I haven't done this sooner.

I just built one of these today and ordered a 1'' stirbar and flask (should be here by monday).. I was playing with it with a 1" metal rod and the magnet kept lifting the top of the fan up and hitting to underside of the enclosure. Do you guys ever see any of that? That was just a metal rod and not a magnet, I can just imagine the adjusting i'm gonna have to do to get my space just right..
