Thanks for the info Shamrock. I don't get notifications of comments. I have a problem with Yahoo, they locked me out of my account cause I couldn't answer my security ?s right. They are my primary email so... I can't get past this even though I changed to gmail. It's frustrating. I'll prevail someday.

If you decide to use the vegie steamer for a reso, make sure it is at least  7 inches in diameter, I built one with the 7 in. and one with the 5 in. The 7 in. has a really great sound, not so much the 5 in., but it's ok.
