Just thought of copper because of its heat conductivity. If stainless
is adequate for the job, then I suppose that would be better.

Well, I have no intention of patenting it ... so go for it. Seems like
it would be too much work for the limited market and profits I could

'beta' prototype if someone starts selling this; then I'll be happy. ;-)
