    Question Gas hob reducer

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi there,
    You know when your stove top equipment is petite and it falls through the cracks on your stove top?
    I know there are things such as reducers that drop onto your gas hob, to catch your gear..
    I'd like to get one, now, these things are a rash all over eBay, but in the UK....
    I figured someone must do them on this side of the planet, but a message out to the site sponsors brought in nothing...
    So, I thought I'd throw it out to the rest of you, to see if anyone knows where I might find one of these things in this part of the world...

    Thanks in anticipation...

    Stu.

    Why focus on this side of the planet if you already know you can find it on eBay from an overseas supplier? Afterall, we're not talking about a high cost or complex item that would require a local support network. At $6.85 + free postage from Europe to here sounds like a no-brainer to me

    Made one in the shape of a cross by twisting and shaping some coat-hanger wire. Crude but effective.

    right, okay... sorry about that...
    I'll give things a little more thought before I put my mouth into gear next time....

    with free postage you'll probably have to wait for a month or more before you receive it. I dont think there's anything wrong with wanting to find one locally.

    I've bent a number out of coat hangers. The ones that worked best were a 5 pointed star.

    5 minutes, 1 wire coat hanger, 1 pair pliers.
