    Ritmo snag

    Right, used the Ritmo today and it stopped again. Found it was the air hole fully blocked solid again when it was spotless on starting. But solid after only an hour?

    I intend trying this gear out and comparing to Webers ocr this Spring. In some earlier treads / posts it was mentioned that adding LankoLatex or SBR to the mix makes it stickier and creamier. But it was said not to put into the water barrel as pumps don't like it but spray it into the open...
