I've only ever used it for 00, N and 0-16.5, but I believe its suitable for all scales up to 12":1'

Start the kettle boiling, place teabag or instant coffee in your desired mug/cup, wait for kettle to boil, pour in hot water, stir and remove tea bag if necessary, add milk and sugar to taste if you like and drink :P

Say to the wife/girlfriend 'fancy a cup of tea/coffee?' If the answer is 'Yes', tell them 'I'll have one while you're making yours' :lol:

Just make sure there is a door or wall between you first!! :wink:
