new here and while I am waiting for my DE and other supplies to get here I was looking around at what I could use to make my own scuttle. I am a cheap bastage so I don't really want to pay over $50 for a clay scuttle when I might be able to do one on my own for far less. I started at Walmart and looked for a violet pot, which I hear works well if you get the right size. Unfortunately, they were out. Not only a few left, I mean out. None.
So I looked at some custard cup things in the baking kinda section. I found a white Corelle cup thing for about 2.99 or so. These are CDN dollarz, FYI. So then I just needed something it could sit in and stay warm.
I couldn't find anything at W-mart so I headed to Canadian tire and basically started to stick my cup thing in every bowl/mug I could see. Anyway, I finally found a coffee mug that held enough water and the custard cup thing fit perfectly. I mean perfectly, like it was made for it. Let me post some pics (if I can figure out how).
Hope this works. Will let you know when I get my gear.
