Cowboy Coffee

Warmed water…

add coffee…boil 2-3 minutes…

cool a bit…

pour cold water on top (proportionally small amount)

This drops the grounds to the bottom…

The boiling reduces the acid in the brew…

add warm water if needed till the flavor is as you like it…

Nuts, Bolts and Washers as FW Ballast.

Holes evenly spaced about the perimeter.

Washers arranged on both sides of the center Plywood wheel.

Paint wheel prior to attaching weights.

Cover with split flexible PVC tubing.


Water Barrel

Add a vessel to the base of a down spout.

Run a small hose from this barrel into the basement.

This relays more vibration to the bridge.

Now to design the Tone Wood Foot that will send energy directly to the tone wood via an adjustable foot.
