Missed the weekly update on the LIDO but progress is being made. I'll go ahead and tell a tale out of school on our efforts....
I previously mentioned a static issue. And after searching and searching this forum and others I could find nothing positive that anyone has to say about static...in any realm but cool vintage physics generators. The tribo electric effect. This has been driving us crazy for weeks now. We tried making little wire sweepers to put on the burr. We ground barefoot. Naked. We wired grounding wires from the LIDO and from us to the ground socket on the wall outlet. We even tried grinding while wearing tinfoil hats. I reached the point that I had convinced myself that static was a good thing as the chaff and smallest fines were the particles generally held to the jar lid and was considering promoting this as the Chaff-O-Static. Or the Stat-O-Mat Chaff Separation System. We have tasted press pots with and without the chaff. I have a canister of chaff collected over the past month and have brewed it to see what it is...inert? Hulls? Asking over and over is the mess of static worth it....can it possibly impart some positive effect.
You may have guessed the conclusion of this little manic episode by now. Glass jar = NO STATIC. Duh.
86 the plastic as the grinder will come with an 8 oz glass jar and if you want the Chaff-O-Stat then we can oblige
We are thankful for our little slowdown on shipping since grinding with no static is a real plus, for us and we think most folks as well.
