Thanks JBrow, I will look for that article but your dimensions are certainly helpful as a comparison. I wonder if this version I’ve created is too large for the blower I have, at least width/ height ratio.

The inside was coated with a thick layer of durhams water putty to eliminate the segmentation of the staves, so it’s not as smooth as being made from metal or plastic, but it’s fairly smooth.

Thanks clin, I have looked at the spreadsheet from Bill and it’s really helpful. I build a wooden version based on his recommendations but ultimately scrapped that version in hopes this one would still work well enough. I’ll always be curious how well they would work in comparison to each other, but not going through the headache to build and put it all together to find out. Thanks again for recommending the spreadsheet though.

Thanks Fred, good to know that you were successful in building a version yourself, seems it is a viable option. Why did you opt to go with the Oneida? Just hopeful it would be better?
