Cool. I'm in. link to buy?
Google is giving me a list of plumbers


Eta looking at your pic again, how woven are these? Is it really multiple wicks?


Eta again, now I see a post upthread from CBC explaining why maybe cotton WOOL is mehudar...
I was thinking about this again. Ner mitzvah has 2 types of cotton wicks: regular (the red box in the link) and multi-ply (the green box in the link). I've used both extensively, and found a much better flame from the multi-ply. So it's hard to taina that you need davka the kind in the red box because it makes a better flame. I don't know whether tzemer gefen would halachically exclude multi-ply, but worse flame can't be the reason.

I make sure that the wick that goes into the tube doesn't stick out more than about an 1/8 - 3/16 of an inch. Less makes a tiny flame, more makes this shriveled up thingy in the flame.
I started burning the top of the wick first, and it helped a lot for the shriveled ash in the flame

Some people specifically put water on the bottom to symbolize klal yisroel floats on top and doesn't mix with the umos
