I did this last weekend, I was super lazy though and did not even bend the coat hanger. I started the drill slowly and gradually built up speed, this prevented it from being too whippy and snapping, it worked an absolute treat.

I tried the vacuum cleaner method he mentioned, and no success.
I will follow kit instructions (doesnt mention degassing, only agitation during clearing) and see how it goes.
Dont have a drill so cant use the other method...

Used this method a while back and found it very easy to degass my wine

Don't do it in one direction only as it ends up like a vortex, this is more likely introduce air rather than remove the CO2, i find giving it a second or two in one direction before switching to the opposite direction for a second or two works best.
Don't overfill your DJ when you start the wine, i fill to the bottom of the shoulder and top up after racking and degassing.

I now use a cigarette lighter to warm the plastic then bend it and run it under a cold tap to fix it in position, much faster and a lot less hassle than boiling water.

Good idea but I'm guessing I will have to be restrained with the lighter otherwise I am bound to melt and burn the plastic.

Yes just warm it and put a little pressure on the joint you will feel when its warm enough.
