- May 1, 2003Nice idea. You could propably substitute the nut/washer combo
inbetween the plates with a piece of copper tube that fits over the
threaded rod (easier to tailor the distance between plates). Just
have nut+washer at each end for disassembly & cleaning. Now would
this be efficient with just plates or would it be beneficial to have
a pot scrubber sandwiched between each two plates?
