  Ok, it's pretty simple,  here's what helped me make a great pot of coffee every time.

  Have a good quality coffee maker that has a brew temp that is lower than boiling.
  If you use a French Press keep your water just under boiling when you add your coffee.
 
  Always use filtered water, the heavy minerals and chemicals used in municipal water systems will ruin a coffee maker and make your coffee taste bitter or give it an acid flavor.
 
  When using a drip type coffee maker or a French Press use only fine ground coffee,  medium and course ground coffee take longer for the full flavor of coffee to be extracted meaning you loose all the flavor that's left in the grounds when your machine finishes it's cycle, the same holds true for a French Press,  plus you use less coffee per cup,  medium grind coffee takes three teaspoons or one heaping tablespoon of grounds per six ounce cup,  fine ground coffee only takes two teaspoons per six ounce cup.

  Many people don't know that a cup of coffee has a standard measurement of six ounces while most domestic coffee cups are made to hold 10 ~ 12 ounces,  so if one uses a coffee cup to measure their water the coffee is going to be weak and taste like the bottom of an ashtray.

  Finely, Use a quality name brand of coffee,  you don't need to spend big bucks on artisan brands to get good flavor,  but usually unbranded, store brand, or dollar store type coffee is not the best quality to use if you want good results,  my personal preference is Melitta brand Breakfast Blend, it's a little more expensive than Maxwell House, Chock full of Nuts,  or Eight O'clock brands,  but because you're using less coffee per cup it pretty much evens out pricewise,  but most any name brand coffee will give good results as long as you keep your measurements of water and coffee right, and you use filtered water.

  Before I started using filtered water I was going through a coffee maker every 12~18 months because of corrosion from the hard and treated municipal water from my tap,  I bought a one gallon Britta water filter bottle that I keep in the fridge just for our drinking and coffee water,  since using the filtered water four years ago I'm still using the same coffee maker, and no longer get bitter tasting coffee.

  That's about it.

I really like the look of the shape and size of the handle. I'd love to see one with a blade of 4' - 4.5"

Aw, heck, Moe, I enjoyed the Mac & Cheese thread.  I think most folks did, but if most folks didn't, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.  FWIW, I'm not a Mora fan.

a few bits of information that I didn't have previously that I'll share with you,  as soon as I get back.

Well, hell, Moe, how long does it take you to make a pot of coffee?

  LOL, not long nuk, I make a full pot every morning, it's always good and always consistent.

  With all the hullabalu I started with the Mac & Cheese thread and the way the replies started coming in on this one I figured I'd better just sit this one out and give it a rest.
  You might think I said something bad about Mora knives again the way all the backs were going up,  I don't know if it's me or if it just that everyone is up tight,  but lately I've been getting into more trouble without trying than most people can on purpose.

 They are a growing problem in a lot of areas,  the other side of the issue that I'm hearing is that they aren't all that safe to eat anymore.

I do know that with some materials like aluminum the parts change dimensionally after they cool. You have to make the mold bigger or smaller (can't remember which) by a certain percentage in order to get the correct final dimensions.

I figured for casting small parts out of brass or bronze or nickel silver or pewter you could use the lost wax method, which is probably similar to lost foam, but I will need to research lost foam because it's new to me.

Where I grew up there was a hardware store that had a rock and mineral/jeweler's supposed shop in it that had hundreds of wax rings you would use to cast your own in metal with all sorts of different designs, but I never got much past polishing rocks in a tumbler.
