Of all the frothers we’ve used so far (Zulay, Elementi, MilkPro) this one is the most powerful. We bought this one because the Elementi wore out. It seems like if you use these every day – which we do – they last about 6 months.
The button presses easy and the frother will “froth yo mamma”. Be prepared to spin the substance out of the cup. I have to keep from holding the button so it never gets too fast.
A reader wrote “I just can’t figure out how this things works. I’m pretty bad mechanically and need all the help I can get. If you can point me in the right direction I’d greatly appreciate it”.
Same with me fellow reader! I’m an electrical engineer not a mechanical!
I’m assuming you are talking about my locking kit more than anything. I think if I pass along a couple of really high level ideas in this post, you’ll have that aha-moment.
First, to really simplify the discussion, forget about locking at all.
If you put a CLOSED 2×4 bar holder on EACH side of your doors on the frame of the shed, you can slide a 2×4 into those bar holders and your doors will both stay shut nicely.
The only problem is that it is WAY TOO EASY to slide out the bar by bad actors.
So… all you have to do is keep the bar from sliding.
This is the trick…
Take ONE of the bar holders with the locking tab and from the back, fasten it to the BAR. You should do this so that you can slide the bar into the loops and the locking tab on the BAR matches up to the locking tab closed bar holder you put on the door frame.
Then on the OPEN bar holder included in the kit, you can decide if you want to use it or not. I use it to simply prop up the 2×4 bar so it doesn’t fall down when I open the shed door.
One of my favorite things in the entire world is having customers send me pictures of how they have used my crazy inventions in their life.
One customer used a Gray Frother Holder to save space in his boat. If you think about it, a BOAT is a very, very confined space. You simply DON’T have counter space. So you can’t store the frother on the counter. We personally hate throwing the frother in the drawer, which is why we made the frother holder.
So I couldn’t be more pleased than punch when I received this picture! Look how pretty the wall mounted coffee milk frother looks on the handheld frother mount!
One pesky (but very nice) customer INSISTED I prime coated my RAW or Galvanized 2×4 End Caps. But that was only after this customer had me drill a hole in a “Left” End Cap and a “Right” End Cap.
This customer wanted to put a pin in the left and right end caps and the pin would go through the 2×4 bar.
Because if someone broke the glass in the French Door, the idea would be to make it one step harder to lift the bar.
I can just hear the idiots now “But gee they will still get in.”
True. But those 15 extra seconds will be handy in sighting them in.
It isn’t always about perfectly securing things – it is balancing the aesthetics of your house while having ENOUGH security. In this case, enough is defined as buying some time.
I can’t and won’t divulge anything about the customer, but I can tell you that those french doors are no easy mark. Break that glass and you have lead in your bum (I wanted to make this rhyme, but I’m too proper).
Here are the pics from this wonderful little install. I love how the customer painted the bar.
