Nice to see you preparing to do some dicing, though
Gonna try to beat my records with that chip?
Thanks, I'm starting to see that is the issue too from feedback. I'm going to go back to the store and see if I can come up with any other heavier designs, and I've got one more store to check out...but if neither have what I want I'll just wait till my finals are over and get a real pot this summer.
Yeah I can't wait, it's been long enough haha.
I'm going to try
might have a trick up my sleeve once summer comes...in the form of something vibrantly orange

As far as how much DICE to use, I keep the pot about half full most of the time but if I am running a bench that does not create much heat I might just fill it to the top so I don't have to add to it for a while.
SuperPi=cool running=full pot
WPrime=hot running=half pot
You will see the acetone start boiling up when running a hot benchmark.
Good call, I could probably cut the tubes in half or something. I think I may be able to get more of those thick rings, in progressively smaller sizes, and fill the base with them and have one small center hole. We'll see if I can come up with a design that I like for an acceptable price, now that I know what to shoot for. If I can't get at least a 2.5 LB base then I think I'm scratching home built.
Thanks for the DICE advice too. I can't wait
