I'm thinking about trying something a little fancy here...only partially drilling my locking hole (rather than making it a through hole, stop @ about 90%), add a spring at the bottom of said hole, and then drill through the 3/4" hole (as previously noted by others) with the spring fully compressed by the locking dowel...then I can put the incline toward the spring-side and, thus, the gauge would be "locked" in it's normal state. The locking dowel would have to be pushed in, in order to relieve the pressure and allow the gauge to slide...The only question is...do I have a appropriately strong spring laying around that would make this variation economical???

I'm not sure what kind of releasing agent you might be able to use to get it free, but what about adding a relief (angle) to the form? That might help with the release.

if you use a length of elastic cord fora the bottom suspension piece, you could benefit from the downward angle and absorption at the same time...if cord damage is a concern, maybe an option would be a hybrid of chain and elastic? or a sleeve over the elastic (like a piece of pvc or similar)...could be tethered behind the gong using a tent stake

I love the instructable, but I realized I was going to run out of corners soon, so I figured out a way to make a template and create multiples by cutting and folding flat cardboard.I made some out of some old beer six pack boxes (cereal boxes would work for most applications, too)...I just used toothpicks cut to equal lengths, made a triangle and cut it out....then I used that triangle to trace four of them side-by-side in a way that would fold to make a 3-sided pyramid (4th flap folds under 1st, held together by tape. Later, I decided to make a template using Visio so I could print more on cardstock to use for light weight applications, or to trace more later; here is the pdf of that design (1.5 inch sides)...the bottom figure makes a few 3-sided triangles (dashed lines are for cutting...see more »I love the instructable, but I realized I was going to run out of corners soon, so I figured out a way to make a template and create multiples by cutting and folding flat cardboard.I made some out of some old beer six pack boxes (cereal boxes would work for most applications, too)...I just used toothpicks cut to equal lengths, made a triangle and cut it out....then I used that triangle to trace four of them side-by-side in a way that would fold to make a 3-sided pyramid (4th flap folds under 1st, held together by tape.

That top figures could be better designed, but it wasn't worth the extra time/brain-power.

Interesting point...I do my best not to inhale due to the smoke and hot air, anyway; I had considered trying to add a one-way valve because of that concern, and you just provided another reason the revisit that one....the current design has a lot of air-leak issues at the joints, so I still need to address that as well.
I was thinking about combining your arduino/guts +lights & sounds with this instructable for a vinyl/plush Starman Tree Topper...(https://www.instructables.com/id/Starman-Tree-Topper)I could stick with just two LED's, but I was thinking it would be pretty sweet to make a 5-sided internal frame and make it with (5) lights, one near each point...can you offer any suggestions about how to accomplish this. Are there any pitfalls you see with this? I might just stick with the (2) lights that are used in your design and the topper's.

I just found this and plan to apply it to another project I found on here...hopefully this makes sense: a slight twist (pun intended) I plan to try is the sever the top of a bottle whose ID of the bottle opening is adequate for the battery. You can then plastic-weld a cap to seal the open side and once you have completed the remaining construction, you could screw the lid on/off to change batteries. I'll post again with photos if/when I actually get around to it.

I decided since I was already out, buying parts, I'd just get the pipe bracket and save myself some time/effort...also, in place of the razor, I beveled the pvc inside and out to make a cutting edge. Doesn't show up well in the picture and the two lemons I tested it out on fell right off, so I haven't had occasion to see if it works yet.I'm thinking about replacing the initial screws I used with nuts/bolts from the inside-out...for now, I just shoved a large sponge (like you would use for washing a vehicle) down to prevent the protruding screws from damaging the fruit.
