Darn - it's late here, and I should be in bed !

The glass rod is just that.  A rod with a "bulge" in the middle which stops it dropping through the vertical tube  That bulge isn't smooth on the underside.  It has a rough surface which filters the water as it moves back down into the lower pot.  It sounds a bit odd, but it works well to let the water through, but not the coffee grounds.

The bit about making a full pot (actually you can easily do a bit less, but not -say- only 20%) is that physics comes into play, requiring a vacuum to be formed to pull content of the upper pot back down.  I've puzzled over this as to why it doesn't work so well with a lower volume, and can't come up with any sort of scientific or unchallengeable answer, but honestly it does work best if you use the right size.

Alex (our OP),
might I also suggest as Yama stove top?
I have one, love it as i do my more vintage pots.
it's blood simple to use, NEVER stalls if the grind is proper and even, and makes a wonderful cup.


EDIT...I removed copy, as this is a BST forum. Almost forgot.
PM on the way.

I've got a Bodum Santos, or a Yama/Hario knock-off that I'd let go for $60 each shipped.

Also have a few earlier Pyrex/Silex siphons, but they need filters, and gaskets.
