Joules, I like the idea of using your rum bottle but, with the large block of (whatever) metal used as the valve body wouldn't it be top heavy? I have been thinking about using a piece of plastic plumbing pipe but it would need to be weighted at the bottom.

I reckon that Rob's pipe flare wins the prize  :thumbup:

Stylish and yet practical as the wide base will make it stable

Easy to add a weighted base.  I also like the rum bottle for having a domed base, less oil gets left in the bottle.  Don't use the whole bottle but maintain the diameter to height ratio on the plan.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

Thanks for the drawings and inspiration . Had a bit of spare time today so after looking in the scrap bit found a bit of 2 inch copper pipe that has been laying around for years some scrap brass and other bits and pieces and made this
