Just whup out my 4 pound Bowie knife (all real lightweight hikers carry a
couple of these) and whisper, "Down!" OK, I knew it was going to get
compicated if I added a moving part.
Not a lot of experience with this yet, but I had no trouble coaxing the ring
into the simmer position with match sticks. Maybe it would be a good idea to
add a couple small ears when you cut out the ring, to help the process. How
about a 1/4 inch tab on opposite sides, on both top and bottom edges of the
simmer ring, to give something positive to push against? Any other
suggestions? -- Roy
