Pretty neat. Any idea how much weight it can hold?

hold firmly to spring back to use than expected on 06/10/2011 14:27:10 MDT Print View

Thank you for interest crowned!
The following wire 1mm in diameter can lift 450ml. The addition of titanium pot, diametrically slightly distorted. So, can hold firmly to spring back to use than expected.
To be designed to include pre-deformation of the pot.

very cool! i've been using clothes hanger wire, which might work well with your design and a longer spoon. i'll have to try this out.

lol. i made this tonite and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working until i took another look at the picture. the spoon has a notch at the end to catch the other side of the pot. nice. anyway i ended up using 2 paperclips to make the longer handle.

for those who don't wish to cut up their precious spoon, here is a chopstick version.

with water

pieces

long handle aluminium spoon
Such movements and push the thumb, other fingers toward the wrist
The two together to draw such a move, generating a vector oval pot. Then the grip.

Palm and covered with two pieces of playing cards and golf balls.
Pull the ball toward the wrist while pushes playing cards.
The move, strongly pinch pot can master the point.

Five times in practice you can become a great magician :-)

Lift the weight of 800g, can be poured.

Keyhole with a spoon is easier to handle.
For slippery metal spoon, you need to practice a few times.
I think you make a slip comfortably and adding silicone tube.

Thanks!
