This is my second season using this design. They work really well I actually use them to make syrup on a pretty small scale just for personal use. Thanks for the design! I'll try and get around to posting a make.

I'm so glad you're making use of it, I never expected it to be used for anything but drinking straight sap!

I do genuinely like the thing tho! How well does it work?

Sorry for the super late response! I find it works quite well if you get it in the tree right. I'd like to design one that isn't 2 parts eventually but this works just fine.

Just a note...why is this not called Sap Tap? I feel like a valuable opportunity has been missed :P

How does it stick into the tree. Do you put a hole in with something else or do you just stab the bottle in?

Drill out a hole with an electric drill, then gently push the tap in. Make sure that it is firmly in place though.
