I bought a bigger old school coffee percolator. The blue porcelin type with the glass viewing top. If I only want to make one cup the percolator will lift off the bottom of the pot as there is not enough water weight to hold it down. So I believe if I place some washers or a large nut on the percolator shaft it will work. My question is what kind of material should I use to be safe?

Stainless Steel would be my preference.

Simple: get a smaller pot. Or fill the one you have up and reheat as needed. Reheated ain't that bad.......

If you use an iron washer, you won't have to ever take an iron pill again. You'll get all the iron out of that washer, probably more and better than an iron pill!

If you use a magnesium washer you can skip that daily vitamin too.

If you use a copper washer, well... skip that vitamin too. You won't need it.

Now, if you use all 3 washers together, you can just skip your one-a-day multi vitamins all together! And probably get better minerals in your system.
Of course... calcium will come from the water itself, if you are not using filtered or distilled water that is.

That's my 2 cents!

Seems funny America has become a nation of pill poppers. We had steel pipes in our home and that was replaced with galvanized. Galvanized was replaced with copper. Copper was replaced with PVC. PVC is replaced with plastic Pex. So we removed all the places we get those vitamins and minerals naturally, and replace that by popping pills. Then we wonder why we get cancer!

Stainless steel, either grade 304 or 316.

For most people, their diet provides all the vitamins they need. Before starting a vitamin regime one should see their doctor and have a simple blood test to check their vitamin/mineral levels. Only if the blood test is low should they take supplements.

A 24-hour pee collection test is good to do also.

X2 We used a smaller pot, filled a carafe and made a second pot if we had guests. To answer your question stainless is the only safe way to go.
