Re: geometer questing

zelph - i think there is an error in the original layout. the radius should be determined and drawn through the points at the edge of the cone area, not the bottom of where the stove sits. when you cut the curve to the radius shown in your drawing, the pot height will be slightly lower than anticipa...
