Chriss29 purchased another E&B lab basket and out of curiosity compared it to the exact same model I purchased 6 months earlier and notice the older one has a noticable bend on the bottom whereas with the new basket sits flush on the table
I have VST and IMS E&B (18 and 20g).
They are pretty much the same. The VST is more magnetic and feel sturdier (none of which matters unless you rely on magnets for a funnel, for example) 😊
The left most (VST) is 4 years old, and it had a previous life before being with me. The IMS E&B right next to it is 10 months old or so. The 20g ones (next two) are relatively new, maybe 3 or 4 months old.
