I've been busy this winter and keep forgetting to show you guys my finished gear.
The first post I'll be making is the handle I made out of a "fancy paperclip".
Here's what you need:
Weighs in at 8g before you chop apart.
Cut out the middle piece and then bond/glue the two ends to the side of your pot.
After that just bend the "arms" so that they are curved and contour to the pot's shape...it helps if you detach them, which is very easy to do.
Total weight is 40g even including the pot lid.
Overall, it's not the greatest handle in the world but it does work pretty well for around 7g extra weight. With a full pot of water it provides enough support to move it off the stove and into a cozy...though I'm not sure I trust it enough yet to start drinking hot water from it (afraid of the handle slipping and scalding my face) but like I mentioned, I have a reflectix cozy for that...since the handles are easily removed I can boil water and then attach the arms when I need to move it.
