Fawk - you sound like me!

My best friend and I are mech eng too. When a part fails, HE will choose to replace it with the same thing. His reasoning is that it's already designed and ready to go. I disagree.... a properly designed part shouldn't break in the first place and obviously needs to be improved. So I would fabricate my own "improved" part.
Plus I'm a cheap bastard so I don't want to pay for a part ... that will just break again.

btw - only the LEFT vent sucks in air. The right one is fake!!! Yes a FAKE cosmetic detail!!! I'm really curious to see what you come up with. I've often thought of re-routing the airflow away from my coffee somehow.
