    I m happy with the two fixed plates of the earlier model. Each one just a little bigger than 50% ID. Leaves a fairly open vapour path and allows full contact

      Your description is perfect - my brain is the problem :) I built a
      cardboard model from paper towel tube split lengthwise and laid a
      coil in the tube (top plate attached). My coil occupies almost all
      I.D. of column (slight clearance). So..if rounded portion of the top
      plate is *same diameter as coil* (>>which is nearly same diameter as
      the I.D. of the column..) ..then vapor contacts bottom surface of
      the top plate primarily and doesn't enjoy all that contact surface
      of coil! Right? Basically the vapor hits a wall?
