Posted Fri May 9, 2014, 6:52pm Subject: Will it fit? Hario TCA-2 top with Hario TCA-3 bottom?
Can anyone confirm whether these parts will fit together for a good seal?
I use my TCA-2 set, and I know it can fit four more ounces of water in the top, once north. Just a question of whether the pieces will seal properly. Someone who has actually done it and knows by experience, please. The gasket on the TCA-2 tube is angled, and it appears that there is a bit more room to slip into a slightly larger neck (if the TCA-3 bottom neck is larger).
Love to get the TCA-3 bowl without buying a second entire set.

I know for a fact that Sweet Marias has sold a Cona Model C globe as a replacement for broken Model B globe.
I doubt that the TCA-3 globe has a different neck than the TCA-2. And the rubber gasket on the TCA-3 will be angled just like on the TCA-2. In fact, my experience suggests that manufacturers use standard parts whenever possible. So the the gasket on the TCA-2 is very likely identical to that on the TCA-3.
That being the case, I suspect that you can use a TCA-2 funnel with a TCA-3 globe.
