I have recently seen several threads of members asking about how to degas and then ask how to make a wand. Well Im bored and have mastered the art of Paint-shop.

Maybe someone can sticky this?

Theres a few different methods of making your own with a coat hanger. This is the way I did mine. It gets a nice whirl-pool action going on.

As long as someone found it useful.

I think I'll make one like that to, I took a piece of plastic rod and dipped it in boiling water until I could bend it into something similar.

Resurrecting the thread, I can only say: I did this yesterday, and it saved me $12 over buying one at the LHBS. I cut it to fit the mouth of my Better Bottle, and it worked perfectly when used. Brilliant!

Look at that, I join this forum, and within 5 minutes I found something to save me money (especially since I have a ton of extra plastic coat hangers right now!).

Ok, I will ask the very stupid question. What do you do with this "wand", when do you doi it and why?

It is obvious that I have never done this
