Alrighty, let's ignore my lack of seedpods and pretend that I want to build a hobbyist's flasking setup. What do I reasonably need for a basic system and where would you recommend I buy the equipment and supplies?

Also, which books / guides / etc. would you recommend I read before attempting this?

A bunsen burner, a pressure cooker, a fan, some stainless steel utensils, sealable glass containers, various liquids, media and a lot of patience :)

For a really simple writeup on flasking have a look at this local web page http://www.users.on.net/~gmcorbin/BOS/Articles/Flasking.html

Cheers

P.S. Alan passed away some years ago now but I have some of his flasked plants - it works :)
