In theory, this has some merit, and does make some sense. But the drawbacks, (from my standpoint) is,
1-I'ld have to alter my existing design which is a little simpler.
2- For me, it would be difficult to make the hinge line on the frt face "inconspicuous", where it would have to open.
3- Every time I needed to view the draft, I would have to reach up behind the stove to open it up.
All of these considerations could be rectified somewhat easily, but I think I'll stick with my original plan. I really don't need another clock in the room, and as long as the manometer has a little less of an industrial look, I don't think most people will realize it's not
a clock, (unless they need to know what time it is).
But your idea Bill, would be good for some-one who wants to start off, and make theirs an actual clock too.
The past couple days have been a wash for me, with O/T, and a late night social engagement, so hopefully I'll be able to get back at it tomorrow, or the next night.
