Very creative on the handle. Thanks. I may even have one of those grout spreaders in my garage.
My other question was about the exhaust pipe and fittings in the lid
. It looks like you used short pipes and 90s. Did you use conduit nuts on the top and on the underside to secure the pipe?
Are the pipes and 90 deg fittings on the lid
