Prince Rupert's Drop

Psalm 111:2 The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

this might just work...

Had to re-jig the mechanism that holds the hot plate level (as the dish tilts) with the bigger solar fryer today.  Once I got the new parts situated, I did a preliminary test while I wait on my extra mirrors to arrive next week.  Maxed out at 678° after sitting in the sun for an hour.  Pretty windy today which really sucks the heat off the gizmo.  I reckon on a calm day I will be able to top the 700° mark.  Note: with the smaller dish I was only able to get the hot plate up to 275°.  79,83,45,0,W

came up short...

Glued down a lot of mirrors today...came up a little short.  Tune in tomorrow night for all the dirty details.  91,95,64,0,W

mail order

Two deliveries today.  The big dish and more Jiffypop.  I actually ordered the Jiffypop from Amazon Monday and got it today.  Had to take that drastic measure because I needed more for my cooking experiment and they were sold out in Study Butte (thanks to the "spring breakers").  Nice thing is, I didn't have to drive all the way to Alpine and it was only a couple of dollars more including delivery right to my door.  88,96,55,0,B
