My little, but useful, fungus scraper is shown to the left of a petri dish of fungus that could be scraped. This is a sturdier version of the inoculation loop that microbiologists use.

I cut a strip of stainless, shaped it, stuck it into a stainless tube, forced in a little brazing paste (sra-solder.com/soldering-brazi), then torched it. For this little job, a propane torch might have been sufficient.

Brazing is a useful skill. Nobody showed me. I watched videos, bought stuff, then made mistakes.

@otto9otto I've only got very rusty beginner-level brazing skills, but it does come in handy sometimes. What's the fungus for?

@jmwright That is a reasonable question to ask, Jeremy, and I don't mind you asking it. Given that this is a public forum, I do not feel free to answer.
