Egg in hole protector?

I have my egg in a table that has a tile top, is there a preferred "buffer" between the egg and tile to prevent chipping when rolling the table around? I have thought about using a heat resistent gasket but it would have to be weather proof. I have used wooden shims but they tend to fall out. Any other sugestions?

notice the gap between the egg and the hard tile.

    Anywho, its about an 1/8th" to a 1/4" inch gap around the egg base. Just trying to prevent any unnecessary damage. Thanks

    If you are really worried about it,cut some small wooden wedges that can be placed in the gap when you are moving it and removed when you get it stabilized where you want it.3 or 4 should do the trick. :)

    If only while it's being moved, some of that foam pipe insulation or pool noodle comes to mind.
  • :S The gap between the egg and hole is bugging me too. I'm working on it but so far I've found nothing I trust to come in contact with a hot egg. Like to figure out something I could leave in place all of the time. I have a granite top and I'm afraid of chipping the finish on the egg when I move it. I'll eventually figure it out and post it, or e-mail you. Pilcher Man.

  • how about stacking some stryrofoam trays from meat?? of cut some pieces of rubber from a car tire ( a jig/sawsall will cut the ire easily).... rubber from old innertubes comes to mind also....

    Has anyone tried gasket material to fill this void? Just a thought.

    Try using 4 dabs or blobs of silicone. Remove the egg from the table, dab a blob of silicone in four places around the granite edge, allow to cure and you should be fine. The silicone will handle the heat and there is high temp silicone available too. You could do a discreet bead of silicone all around the edge also.

    I think Phil's idea above is great.
    I was thinking about getting a thin walled high temp heater hose from the auto store and cutting it length wise and feeding it around the edge. The diameter of the hose would differ on the depth of your table.

    I'm currently using Hoss's method, seems to work for now. Eventually I hope to build an Island for the Egg and the Eggcessories! Thanks All for the suggestions! :)
