Re: Acoustic Compression Combustion Engine / World Wide Mark

If I bought anything, it would be a complete propane valveless engine, ready to go after some minor assembly.

Re: commercialisation

Sounds like Miami :-}. The southernmost part of Canada are on the same latitude as the northernmost parts of China. Is Taiwan in the northern hemisphere?

Re: commercialisation

Holy sh*t you guys got a lot of snow already! We just got a little dusting that hasn't stayed. Last year it was Christmas before my lawn finally disappeared. That ATV drilling machine looks really cool. Can you tell me the manufacturer?

Re: 3 To 1 Phase

Can you not simply use all three phases in parallel? Since you are working with one single resistive load in a welding application, it would be evenly distributed across all three phases.

Re: Trains

Steam power is fascinating stuff and much more complex than many people realize. There are explosions at shows every year because people don't understand how to operate their boilers. I read that by the 1940s, the techonology was so advanced and efficient that it only took one little lump of coal an...

All that duraluminum must be worth something. I had lunch in Super Connie near the airport in Toronto. That was fun, even though the food was kinda crappy.

I think that a lot of those extremely high bids are phony. The guy who never spends more than ten bucks will most likely not honour his bid if he wins.

Re: One nuclear bomber to go, vgc, all mod cons, needs tlc

Tom, I can almost guarantee that taking disecting and loading that thing on a freighter would cost less than having it inspectied from nose to tail and re-furbished to the point of airworthiness. Who even knows if you can get parts for it? Simply to fill those fuel tanks would cost a mighty sum, and...

The price is right but the shipping will probably be an arm and a leg.

Re: Gotta be going for awhile.

Do they really work you that hard? Surely you can find a few moments in the coming weeks to drop in and at least see what's been happening. Hope all goes well for you, Paul.

Re: Wanted, a huge compressor and more!

Sounds like you are looking for one of those big diesel trailerized jobs, Viv. Do they have the Auto Trader up by you? I'm sure you can find something in there.

Re: Wanted, a huge compressor and more!

How big is honking big, Viv? Gas or electric? Surely you can find something in Montreal or Ottawa or Toronto.

You should be able to get methyl hydrate at any hardware store or even at paint stores.
