Topic: Pyrex tubes for poppers (9 msgs / 159 lines)
1) From: Scott Marquardt
http://snipurl.com/19ivcI strongly believe that the 2-7/8" measurement cited by the seller is
an inside measurement. This is the packaging that generally is
associated with a 3" outside diameter tube.
If any of ye popper modders haven't experienced the joy of these
things yet, what on earth are ye waiting for?
I'd suggest that list folk not bid against each other, though. Someone
holler "I got it!" and go for it. These crop up every few weeks so
there's no need to bid it up.
Similar tubes come in one-tube packaging -- those aren't the right
size. Only the doubles are 3", as far as I've been able to determine.
That's fine, though -- 'cause once you become dependent on these,
you'd hate to be left with none at all if you broke one. Double means
a spare!
Sometimes the sellers get the measurements dead wrong. If you're not
sure, ask 'em.
Testimony: There's no way I could do as much as 12 ounces in a
Wearever Pumper without one of these (as well as a split circuit and
boosted fan, not to mention a 20 degree tilt).

Scott,
Thanks for the heads up.

...and they're coming from Canada.  There are extra fees you have to pay to 
cross the border with packages and mail.

what kind of popcorn pumper are you using? i've been curious as to 
whether anyone's gotten the bake-a-round duo to fit a 1400w pumper.

That's exactly what I used for the first tube herehttp://johnnykent.com/coffee/Mk2.1/ChamberWGreens.jpgbut sadly I broke it. Was good while it lasted though.
Fortunately lampglasses are also inexpensive but not as good...

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
would these work in a FR+8, assuming it has the power to create additional
heat?

The one with the butter dish in the side? Yes, absolutely. That's my
bread and butter machine.

Couldn't say. They're 3" OD -- so you'll have to pull out your
ruler/caliper/pedometer and tinker with the dimensions of your roaster
to see.
