Well guys,another "sage" and possibly boreing comment (a function,I think,of growing old). Anyway,a great number of us prefer the Cory rod for a vacpot,rather than paper,cloth or the Bodum experiment. I think we can all admit that the cloth filter is very good,but the glass rod seems a bit (at least) better.
It occurs to me as I age,that time marches on. The Cory has been out of production for a century. For how much longer do you think they will keep appearing on Ebay? At some point,possibly soon,the supply must run out (unless we all die and will them to Ebay.) I strongly suggest that
we all make a point to owning several. At worst,maybe our kids will appreciate them. As I said,just a thought.

Barry...would the rod that came with my eBay Silex  be a Cory? It's the original...
When i get it, I post pictures...and i agree that having more than one is a good idea....just try to find a really old corner cabinet at an auction these days....pracically no more English/Danish pine amoires...they make them now from old wood taken from churches, floors etc...

No Rob. Yours will have a spring attached,to hold the rod firmly in place. It's a fine system. That rod can be used with several vacpots,but I've still seen a few posts comenting that with some,it doesn't fit quite properly. Considering your bright future with coffee,I'd still suggest getting a Cory rod or two,just looking to the future.
                                                     Best,

By the way,Rob,like Craig, I look forward to you getting your vacpot and screaming that the brew is to strong or too weak,or tasting lousy. It's such fun to help---take care.

Rob:
 Can't be sure,but the damn things fit almost anything. However,there is no reason to get one for your Silex--their rod is just great. The reason I suggest getting at least one Cory rod is that I have a hunch you are going to be buying more vacpots. For instance,despite some opinions,I think the Bodum filter stinks,and their manual 8 cupper will take the Cory rod

A side issue--I like Craig too--he's a classy guy (hope he's not watching)

Craig's in zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz land...it's 1:26 in Toronto...eh?
He's been around here along time...as technically astute as anyone on this forum...and unpretentious as well...he can be cantankorous (sp?) when provoked  ;>D
Won awards as a home brewer as well...
Man, there are so many bright, creative minds on CG... yours truly excluded...well...maybe I'm OK with music....
