It is not my fault !!!!
The reason is that the old socket (plug) !!!!!.

Looking at the old plugs decided I arrived and the time to do an overhaul on the morphology of an electrical-construction I made to drink my espresso.

I had saved up some bags with various pieces of aluminum scrap and made a selection before put in the recycling bin, seized by the desire to have fun and at the same time to try to do something different. The new plan was to change the base of support, it can be incorporated together in the old pin (porcelain invoice and bakelite), resulting from a cone electric heater that we once had and which I found in a drawer in the garage, then install new power cables in copper and maybe do a conversion on how to connect the cables to the switch control of the plate temperature.
All easy in theory, but as the reality, for the simple fact that none of these materials are designed to fit with the rest is usually long and difficult.
How we will do it ?????
But in Steampunk style !!!!! ( I wish )
I started with a new base. It comes from a gear box of cars. Not the 'I paid. I asked and me have donated, and then a lot of work to wash it with gasoline and clean oil and grease, to rub with sandpaper and then again with water and sandpaper to polish, but I finally smile.
Above this base I screwed-connected a thermodynamic clutch (slightly modified) and which supports a heat sink on which the male part of the plug is mounted. Here I must say that the plug components and the nest, contacts and porcelain accessories I bought him for € 5, because I could not find even if I looked in the garage. Also here is an aluminum tube fixed through which the cable passes which will bring the current in the plug. Above the thermodynamic clutch (clutch fan) I placed an item in the shell of an alternator aluminum and after much work I put the stove plate. Next to them an arm that would withstand the power switch with three positions of temperature was fixed. The transfer of the current from the plug in the switch has been made from copper wires with a thickness of 4 mm, and for not having an accident have been coated with transparent heat shrink sheath. Thus the copper color is evident. The cables (blue color) from the temperature selector are passed so as to be possibly the least visible.
Everything was screwed with 6 stainless screws Allen of 8 mm thick on a piece of plywood and I painted dark brown












And now is time for coffee !!!!!!

The coffee is excellent Doug. Every morning I drink one cup.

The issue is not money, but the joy and satisfaction when you manage to make something.

Maybe the next project.
But if you have some scrap parts from helicopter you please send me. Need materials.
