Top Loader?- save your knuckles

Postby Ed Cantarella » Fri Mar 16, 2018 8:38 pm

I keep seeing the scraped knuckles complaints. This. Use rubber coated wire - haven't dropped one yet.
Easy to steer past the thermocouple - left hand up, right hand down(steering)
Worsk on round or octagon too()due to the rubber coating on the wire) - just keep your hands over the darn circle Louise!.. :mrgreen:
With some thin ones I can set a 7" candle plate into a Paragon Caldera, easy-peasy.
HER last words were, "I'm melting, melting . . . " Dissenting opinions generally welcome for comic relief or personal edification. Sometimes both.
