    Regards,

    Sure, I was dragged kicking and screaming into the feed game...

    I didn't wish to enable sloth---then I tried it.

    Now I'm totally hooked on the concept...

    I made some changes, tried to address the weakest points...

    The Phidias has an oversize, flush, exotic wood plunger that's fully supported through its entire travel--courtesy of being "let in" to both sides the Phidias' cover with center partition, no rattle, nothing to catch on your pocket, no egging out of the cover etc.

    I so did not like the idea of brass and juice in contact on every feed, enough said.

    The reason of course is the existing systems bottom feed and the juice just leaks out of the atty's air vents...and you need a bucket to catch it till you suck it up.


    I'm not here to dis- but these are the things that held me back from following the herd.

    Another issue is the long tube to the very bottom of the bottle to suck up the last 1/4 of the juice.

    this is just silly

    air is pulled back into this tube as you release pressure and you end up with a column of air in the long tube which just moves up and down and--nothing-happens...

    you're dry humping

    So, the Phidias feed system is employed upside down--the tube stops at the cap, the juice does not leak out of the air vents but feeds the wick...the air is still there when you release, but the tube is short enough that you can pump every last drop out of your bottle.

    O' yeah, the feed tube is surgical stainless steel...

    Anyway---here it is...

    thanks for reading
    Best Regards

    PS. another happy thing is that you can prime your atty before you screw it on by pushing the plunger and watching the drops of juice drip---a quick mental note of how long it takes to get three drops allows you to gage the time needed for any viscosity of juice--pretty nice. I settled on 18 gage stainless as it delivers four drops per extended press and that seems eliminate any chance of flooding...regards

    Regards,
