Default De-gassing wand.

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.

I used an old plastic handle for opening and closing venetian blinds and a pot of boiling water to add a bend and flatten it a bit for a paddle shape on the end.

I think for wine.....
