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?
