Be worth experimenting some. Don't get rid of it.
I don't want to hijack this thread though.
The hijack on this is fine by me. Interesting you say that, because some one mentioned it could be like that, but i couldnt see how it would decide to go into the drum and not just out of the outer ring. Next time im down there (they live in sacto, about an hour and half drive from here) I may try this out somehow.
