Topic: More on Rocky purger (31 lines)
1) From: Peter Elkins
Barry/Mike:
Mea culpa on not posting earlier re the lid.  I think of this place as a
roasting forum, so I didn't think to bring it up.  More to the point, I'm
usually more of a lurker on this board anyway, perhaps because I'm in awe of
some of the mad scientists around here.  At any rate, Barry, I didn't mean
anything by the coffeegeek reference I made.  It was more of an "Oh, yeah.
That's where I saw that" thing than anything else.  Sorry if I hit a nerve.
Re the lids:
These lids are a good inch and a half thick and are not cylindrical.  I have
the 0.7L one.  It's white.  I believe there is/was another similarly sized
canister with a purplish lid.  The one I have is, I believe, the larger one.
It measures about 4 13/16" across at the top, gets a fair amount narrower in
the middle, then gets a little bit bigger at the bottom.  I estimated the
diameter at the bottom to be about 4 5/16".  This lid fits well in Rocky,
but I wouldn't say it's snug.  A slightly larger lid would probably work,
but I'm not sure about a smaller one.  Maybe that's why some people were
using tape.  In any case, the canister I got is available at both Bed, Bath,
and Beyond and Linens 'n Things.  I think I saw one at Kohl's too, but I'm
not sure about that.
Pete
