    This is fantastic. I've never heard of Blu-tack, though. Is this fairly commonly available? I am really excited about making one of these with my 5 year old

    Hello
    Thanks for the good work, I find the info' very useful for our group technocorner.org
    I have used other boiler designs, but the attraction with this one is no use of epoxy glue which we are not able to use. (health and safety). I have not been able to get this boiler functioning, so is angle of straw bend critical; length of straw critical?. There is no air leak, but only minor bubbles in exhaust. Thanks
