Hi Fr. McGahee, all,
                      I have built plate caps (without the wicking) 
in more-or-less the way you describe. I offer a warning on the use of 
acrylic for compressing the thing - the acrylic bends like hell, even 
the thicker stuff. I was incredibly disappointed. The idea is great 
though. Perhaps someone can suggest something a lot more rigid. 
Alternatively, some kind of G-clamp to compress it in the middle, at 
least temporarily until the cap is dunked in the oil?
