    @Solson005: Thanks for the info. I like the idea of not having to pick up bottle caps off the floor!

    I saw this magnetic bottle cap catcher on Amazon and wondered if that is what you had, but it sounds like you just fastened a magnet to the carten and it works. Is that a neodymium magnet? Are they rated in terms of strength or load capacity in any way?

    @Bullibe I have a piece that pops in for my large egg, but the adapter door for the small egg takes the place of the screen and main door. Since it is smaller it slides in rather than pops in like the one for the bigger eggs.

    Oh I see, I didn't realize the small ash door was smaller.  Never mind :)

    Yes that is very similar to the one I use. If you google "rare earth magnets" a couple of sites pull up that do give the strength ratings, I would get a pretty powerful one just so it can catch the first couple, once a few are on there they will slow down the caps and make it easier to add to them. Some of those bottle cap catcher say how many caps it can hold but they sell the magnets with holes for a screw / bolt so it would be cheaper to buy it from a magnet place.

    @Bullibe no worries, it is quite a bit smaller and it easier to clean by taking everything out instead of using the ash tool like on my large egg.

    I think a small would compliment my med, I have been looking for a "deal" on one but I guess if I want one, I will just have to head over to my dealer and spring for it ! I keep saying it's the portability I am after !

    I forgot about this one. It helps, and has held up without any problems.
