About a year ago I posted a question about covering the rust inside a Cowbo y Coffee Pot with enamel paint. I had bought the pot on eBay to replace a Cowboy pot which had a broken peculator tube. I never did anything about the rust and the eBay pot has been sitting in my basement for over a year.
Background Part 2:
Last week I was going through my camping equipment and came across the original pot with the broken tube. I decided to try JB-Weld to fix it. (Food safe when cured, able to withstand up to 600°F direct heat.) I f ixed the tube and set up the pot to use this morning. I wanted to make sure it worked before we go camping.
Very Strange Coincidence:
I filled the repaired pot with water and grounds, set it on the stove and sat down to check out a.h.r. I found that someone had posted a response to my year old question about the rusty pot. Of course it came form h.o.h, where dates don't seem to matter, but it's still very strange that the response showed up at the same time as I was setting up the original pot.
Maybe I should look for hidden cameras in my house.
BTW...the coffee came out great.
