Pressure Pot Modifications/Suggestions
The pressure pot I am currently using is an old paint pot. What I have done to ensure that it works properly is to use Teflon tape on the pot threads , I like the white tape. There are several types of teflon tape. Green/yellow etc. It depends on the usage. For my purposes the general all purpose white tape I find works the best. The second thing I have done is I use a chain wrench to tighten my pressure pot lid securely. Yes it has indents on the lid to grab, but I cant get a good enough grip without tilting the pot and putting it between my knees. Doing that just slopped my mold around inside. So having your paint pot secured is probably a good thing if you are using a modified design.
