In Topic: Flower Pot Suggestions

Today, 06:50 PM

I throw my flower pots with the saucer attached to the bottom.  I just throw a trough at the bottom that would hold the water draining through a hole that I poke out the side of the flower pot, which drains into the trough. Proven design that many people make, and it works good.  No sizing, no trimming, and no attaching of a saucer.

The one I bought for $300 was from an ad from a guy in Tacoma who was asking $1000.  After many email he agreed to the price of $300.  He even delivered it for $50. The blades are stainless and perfect and the case is rust free and the unit is complete with the cover and the built in tamper.  I have run about 1000lbs of clay through it since I have had it.  The only three things that are not perfect.  The piano hinge for the top is broken, which does not affect operation since I just lift it off and place it back in the original open position.  The second is the spider bushing on the drive line has a couple of bulging area so will need to be replaced at some point however still is working fine now.  The last thing is the only real problem and that is the on/off switch.  It has a built in circuit breaker and that is starting to go bad.  It takes a couple of on/off flicks until it "catches" and stays on.  I am sure I can replace the bushing and the switch easily, but have not gotten around to it.  The hinge will just be the way it is, I have no desire to repair that.
