It tasted horrible, and yet......I found I couldn't stop eating it!

Re: Drinkers

One valve is now slightly leaking water through while standing so that length of spring is obviously right on the minimum. Easy to tighten it up a bit with some packing behind it on the shaft.

Re: Drinkers

After using these for a while I should let you all know that they work... but... not very well. So, what I think is going on is that a slightly more pricey design may have a flat (or flatter) faced o'ring (and maybe a bit stiffer) so that displacement of the lever has more effect.

I haven't tried jellied eels (I don't think, unless it was very long ago.) Have cooked a squirrel that...

Re: Drinkers

checked the drinkers when I got home and two of the cups were full, one empty. They were all almost empty this morning so they are obviously making the valves work. Also two eggs laid today :)
