    I thought I'd get the candler out and candle my roo's foot and check for a bumble. Looked clear except for the fat pad. But the light does work, and you can inspect in all different directions. Hope someone tries it and posts anything interesting here.

    Can you see the bumbles? Or do you know yet?

    I don't know. I looked from all different directions and didn't see anything abnormal. There is a fat pad in the middle that's not very see thru. I only had the one foot. I'll have to wait for the next. But it's worth trying and posting.

    I will try to remember to check. I still have one more to go. A mild case.
