  • Once these run out you can find them at tooling supply stores such as McMaster or Reid. They are called spring plungers with a Delrin nose. They are quite a bit cheaper here though.

  • If someone buys this please let me know if it levitates like in the photo.

    • i wish it did levitate, lol.

    • Sorry - no it does not levitate. That's just our photographer trying to demonstrate how the wiper works. It should be shown at a 90degree right angle to the Pot, not levitating magically at 45 degrees...
