I used a 1 1/4" diameter by 13 1/8" long dowel for upright part and a 1/2" X 7 1/2" dowel for the cross-piece. I drilled a hole in the large dowel to put the smaller one into to serve as a stop just above the blades. Both came from a local hardware store; I believe they are yellow pine. The length dimension of the fatter dowel will be different, I am assuming, with the Waring container. I do not have one yet. :-)

Would the Waring 32 ounce container fit as well? I find that the 32 oz size is pretty much overkill.
Does the 32 oz container fit as well? I find that the large container is usually overkill.
This was all planned. The police thugs are being used against the people in increasingly brutal and tragic ways. There is absolutely no justification for any of this lunacy.

@Paul They had wooden tampers with the stainless versions. I had to make myself one because the plastic one I had disappeared. Wasn't very hard to do.

Great idea. I had a stainless VitaMix from 1982 until 2006. If they are willing to bring back the stainless containers, I REALLY want them to NOT use sleeve bearings at the bottom of the container. That was a really weak point for that design. The other weak spots were the handle and the gasket between the lid and the container that had to be replaced with some regularity. Those stainless models also had a very powerful reversing motor, unlike the models with the plastic containers. While it's kind of nice to watch what's going on in the container while it's processing, I do not like the plastic vessel that I now have.
I really don't want to buy another VitaMix but would if they brought back the stainless setup. Plastic bites!
@rdarnitall You're right, so far--they haven't gone that far yet as to restrict one's right to move wherever one chooses. Some who have financial hardships do not enjoy this same opportunity though.

@countyguard We're kind of screwed when the county is populated by liberal idiots who know nothing nor do they care that they are ignorant. Couple that with county sheriffs who don't know their behinds from a hole in the ground and you have a most offensive place in which to exist.
@Roberto Benitez Yeah, I "conveniently" missed that. Guess you're Bobby on the spot.

@stormtrooper1991 Well, at least there was an EFFORT put forth there. In Assachusetts, the criminals are going full steam ahead to get very stringent gun control "laws" in place--on top of an already liberal wet-dream set-up. They're all patting themselves on the back and congratulating themselves for their great efforts. I love this state but detest those who are unlawfully destroying it; and that includes so many of the Kalifornia transplants. How far they've left behind the original spirit of independence and stand-up behavior that once characterized this state.

@PaulYannucci So you're apparently not aware that EVERY war has been financed by and nursed into being by the effing banksters? It was OUR government's meddling, provocation and harassment of Japan that finally pushed them to attack at Pearl Harbor. The ships that were set up like bowling pins for the attacking planes to destroy were an intentional order that the then commander objected to. Perhaps you need to do some additional research and remember that the history taught to us all has been mainly lies and vital omissions.

@Patrick Henry Exactly right. Though I've seen breathtaking corruption at city & county levels in Colorado, it still beats having to grapple with a tyrant that is so huge and nebulous as what our fed gov has become. It's all about waking up the sheeple to what's going on right in front of them.

@MichaelBroadway Focusing on mental illness will bring even MORE of the SSRIs into the picture until these abhorrent drugs are exposed for what they are and what they do. BigPharm is rubbing its evil paws in glee when they hear these well-schooled notions that are endlessly parroted by the lamestream media.
@OdellHarwell And yet, it seems that NONE of them have any interest in showing just which part of the Constitution gives them the authority to do ANY of what they do. Wouldn't that be a hoot if they were required to show such authorization/permission?
@Equality 7_2521 I think that probably would cause less of an uproar than expected; they'll just borrow more from Bernanke......problem solved.
@Patrick Henry When we finally get serious about telling the feds to go eff themselves we will STOP sending all our money (stolen tax money) to them and start spending it on the damned states.
@OdellHarwell I agree! But, this whole mess is so long overdue for correction. ;-))
I wish they'd said ANY and ALL so-called legislation from our illegitimate government....it's all unconstitutional. Geeze, why not go for the whole mess?
@ward7098 If we could starve them in fact--by withdrawing any monies that they get and ever could get--we'd have something worthwhile. As long as they're allowed to live their lavish lifestyles, at our expense, they could not care less what we think.

@gypsynovus I get where you are coming from; what you're saying. That may work well on some but it is a real turnoff for me--just not my nature and I'd expect it's more seen in the males of our species. As I get older I have less and less tolerance for such methods of communication. I've experienced a lot of crap, been through a lot of crap. I think you and I have the same goals but will perhaps reach them by different means. I identify myself in many ways with a crusty old New Englander--leave me the hell alone to live my life as I choose, not how you demand it ;-)
I will be the one who will bind your wounds and give my best to you to keep you strong. I will be one of those who has your back, who plays her cards close to her chest to keep you safe.

@calinb7 Ha ha! Well, you know who sells THOSE little boxes of offal! Enjoy your meal.
@gypsynovus Your "hiding under the table" comment was very ambiguous as to whom it was directed. Levity or not, I am NOT hiding under any table. I think you have a lot of good to say, gypsy, but you seem to delight in making enemies. I am not your enemy. Perhaps one day soon we'll work side by side, each doing what we are able. In the meantime, a little regard for those with whom you engage in discussion would be very appreciated. Life is short at best, let's stand WITH our brothers and sisters (so to speak), not against them.
@WilliamSchooler I found your comments to be rather difficult to understand and not well-defined. You might find it valuable to re-read your comments before posting them.... just sayin'...
@gypsynovus Your comments are being directed at a 62 year old woman--ME. Somehow, I don't think I'll be running with a militia. My strengths will be used in other ways. I'd like to know why you think it is right to attack others who are in the same battle as you and are pretty much on the same page. Your behavior lacks honor and integrity. The bridges that you seem to take great delight in burning will come back to haunt you if you're not a little more circumspect. Perhaps you'd like to dial it back just a notch and reconsider your unkind tactics and sentiments. And I am far from hiding under the table.
@gypsynovus So, having said all that, and I agree with you, where did you read in any of my comments that any of the politicians have ANYTHING to offer? So, I do not know what you know? I lose what? How could you even think that you have a clue as to what I know or do not know?
@poco424 Nothing anyone can do once they decide to do it? I will be glad I'm not standing beside you when the SHTF. I am not ready to just hand over everything to them like you seem to be. That's OK, you leave the country with the rest of the cowards. And, I am well aware of Lincoln's utter treasonous actions during his time in the white house.
I LIVE in this liberal armpit of Assachusetts--do YOU? I know what this POS is. I know what a POS ovomit is. You're deluding yourself if you think that mittens would have been ANY better. Mittens gave us the template for ovomit's ovomitcare. Please. We only get to vote for whoever THEY select. I voted for neither because the "lesser" of 2 evils is still EVIL......I chose NEITHER. The whole thing is broken and utterly and tragically corrupted. You gain nothing by playing THEIR game and pretending that the next shitbag is going to better than the last one.
And, no, HELL NO, I don't waste my time and subject myself to their programming. I do not own a television and am not interested in being brainwashed. I am well aware of what the present criminal and all his minions are and have been doing.
Is that the best you've got?
@poco424 Are you implying that mittens would have been better than the present fraud? If so, you didn't pay attention to all the egregious things he voted for and the utter crap he's been involved in.
@jtrailroad There is no third term--unless he becomes a total dictator. Constitutionally, they get 2 terms but since he wipes his azz with the Constitution all the time, that won't be any deterrent to him. In that case, who knows.
@Admiral America Unfortunately, either choice would have been Hitler. I truly believe that mittens would have delivered world war 3. I voted for NEITHER of these filth.

@Deerinwater Obama has no right to have anything to do with any credit card or insurance companies. Have you ever read what the responsibilities are for the president? They all behave like kings.
@geerterri @vieteravet That is absolutely not true; it matters a great deal where your parents were born, as well as yourself in one's eligibility for the office of the president. Try reading the criteria that is supposed to be the governing principles in this country--that are utterly ignored.
@jopa None of these American kings can expand on any RIGHTS that we have. Rights are not given or bestowed; privileges are given and can and will be taken away. Governments only take and destroy and ours is and has been doing a bang-up job in that department for many many years. We have the right to keep and bear arms.....no qualifiers in the Second Amendment. Now, how hard is that to understand?
@Deerinwater @vieteravet Good grief! Can't we all just demand that they ALL produce their records without whining about our illegitimate president's utter lack of ANY documentation? They're ALL lying!
@ChrisBlec @Michael Boldin @Babblefish I wonder if Rand is really "one of our own". He actions have been so good in some areas but then he seems to negate what he did with other very odious actions. I've wondered about him for some time now.
