Ok so I’m on a quest to turn my usual snap-and-pull into a more stable shatter. I finally got my buchner funnel and I was about to give winterizing my first go, but it literally shattered before I got to use it lol.
So I had an idea but I was hoping to get some feedback on whether or not it might work the same.
So I was thinking I would use my 6" diamond miner as a base.
I could remove the sight glass, and attach my conical reducer with a clamp.
Then I was thinking I would put my 3 inch filter plate on top of the conical reducer.
Last I was going to put some ashless filter paper on top the 150 micron SS screen that the filter plate came with, and secure it in with the compression clamp.
My biggest concern is that the filter plate doesn’t have much room to pour in the solution, could I just pour a little at a time?
If I pull vacuum on the diamond miner, could I use this just like a buchner funnel?
PS- Btw sorry in advance if this is all dumb lol
