Topic: beaker (or other) replacement glass for french press? (8 msgs / 127 lines)
1) From: Gary White
Fortunately I had ordered a replacement glass for my Bodum Chambord 8 Tasse
FP with my last greens order thinking that I probably wouldn't need it for a
while since I was so careful when handling it.  That was shortly before I
broke the original while washing it (only moderate blood loss).  It was then
that I started thinking about cheaper (and possibly stronger) alternatives
for the replacement glass.
I just did a web search for laboratory beakers and found some that appear to
approximate the size that I need.  The outside dimensions for the beakers
are 90 x 188 mm which converts to 3.543307 x 7.401575 inches.  The dimension
for the Bodum replacement glass from SM is 3.5 x 7 inches.  There is no
indication as to whether these are inside or outside dimensions or whether
they are approximate or precise so I don't know if the plunger would fit the
lab beaker.
Does anyone know whether there are any attractive options for replacement
glass?  (beakers or otherwise)

Yessir - Bodum makes an indistructible polycarbonate plastic 32 oz french
press. I take mine when I go plop camping - Mike

As opposed to hiking in; drive the car up to the tent and 'plop' down. Boy
Scout term. - Mike
