Topic: Looking for Bake-A-Round to fit Poppery-I (7 msgs / 129 lines)
1) From: John Moody
Iím looking for a Bake-A-Round tube that would fit the Poppery-I; the pyrex
from corning, not the plain glass chimney type.
If you have one that you could sell me, please contact me off list at
moodymz3 Ďatí yahoo.com.
I could not find any list rules for wanted-to-buy posting.  I hope someone
speaks up quickly if it is frowned upon.

They don't "fit" the poppery.

I stand corrected, apparently there are/were two sizes.

John,
You are probably going to have to start loitering on eBay.  And, of course,
your local thrift stores.  I've scored a couple and been out-bid a few
times.  The common standard popular Bake-A-Round tube is too large.  The
ones that I have found to be the correct size were originally sold in a
double box (two tubes with wire rack)......May have been sold as singles but
I haven't run into them.
Good Luck
Mike (just plain)

Mike,
Yeah, I have been watching eBay.  The last duo set I saw listed was back in February, but did not bid since I did not have a P1 at that time.  Now, after 4 failed bids on a P1, I do have one, purchased at an obscene price.
I am looking forward to getting it plumbed into the PXG controller and learning a few things.

John..go to Hobby Lobby, if there is one close to you, and buy a kerosene lamp globe or shade...the clear one. I've been using one for several months. It's thin glass but heat proof. That should work until you find your bake-a-round.

John,
The suggestion from Wes is a good one, you can usually find an appropriate
traditional looking lamp chimney in local hardware stores (you know - real
hardware store....not the big box places).
you can buy a straight (no bulges) chimney from www.oillampman.com .  I
can't seem to navigate their site to find it currently....last few I've
bought, I phoned their 800 # and explained that I want the straight 3"
non-frosted, non-patterned clear glass chimney.....less than $10 each.  I
usually buy two or three at a time, saves on postage.  The real advantage to
the straight glass variety is that they are thicker glass and when handled
by yours truely (fumble fingers) they last considerably longer.
Your going to love the PXG, email me off list if you have any
problems.....I've worked my way thru a few.
