    Well to take my mind off members in Austria suffering with snowdrifts locked in their Roastery with nothing but 90KG of green beans and a vintage Pav, and as my dog is going on 15yrs and ignoring my ideas about pulling a rescue sledge across the Tirol I decided to make some rubber feet as a distraction

    The Bruni like most vintage levers is held off the worktop by 4 rubber feet, two of these are serviceable but the front two have almost worn away, so the answer make some new ones

    First make a wooden mould out of two bits of scrap wood

    stage 1 pilot holes

    Stage 2 - drill out the stem size

    Stage 3 Drill out the foot size with a centre point drill bit to give it squareish shoulders and not sloped like a normal drill

    Next seal the wood with some varnish then when dry apply a coat of wax then pour in the black moulding rubber

    Wait a few hours, trim off the top

    then separate the mould, he rubber feet will harden fully over night

    Aaahh yes ... but it's 500kgs of greens.
    And a fridge full of... erm... beer.

    Other than that - hooray all these techniques, smart and simple, love it!
