I have a metal Reo that was given to me. It's not the same though. I only use the other for a flavor change. Then it's back to the Woodvil. I am going to be lost without it. I'm already having withdrawels from not having it. The Derringer is tiny. I wonder if there is a way Rob can put a block on the bottom of that area, so it cannot lower? If this is how it is, I guess I better just buy a metal Reo the next time I can get something new. Nothing comes close to the feel of the Woodvil in your hands though. The Quasar is on my metal Reo, and you have to push pretty hard on it to get the top cap on. That is why I wouldn't use it on the Woodville. I guess I should change out the o-rings on the Derringer. They swelled a little after time. I had to press a little, but not much by any means. I will see what he says. Thanks for the moral support folks. I am very distraught right now.
