With the legos you could easily increase of decrease the distance of the flask to the magnet depending on the size of the starter to get it spinning. Very clever.

Hats off man!

I actually did not have to use any glue...which surprised me. It might be hard to see, but the lid has random 'thin' legos all across it as sort of a cross beam support system...if you will?

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

This is incredible! I just built my stirplate last week out of Radio Shack parts and I now feel that mine is inadequate. Maybe SWMBO will let me build another...
