haha it helps if you read. reading is funI think what gavidoc was referring to for his friend was for the purpose of Degassing Silicone,
for doing that you would need a clear top to view the degassing process so that you don't
make a big mess. And so you know when the Silicone is ready.
I used a big Aluminum Pot that some people use for Boiling Turkeys, and the only thing I have left
is to buy and modify the Acrylic Lid.
