Re: Need a source for replacement air compressor tank

A world-class tinkerer I know had an A/C compressor run by an electric motor and about a dozen Freon cans all mounted on a four wheel cart.

Sorry, that doesn't help.

Re: Quick little fettle

First one I got at a yard sale in the "free" pile.

I love em, got a few of em and keep them in various suitcase stoves.

You do have to clean the little wheel, I don't remember how I clean the last one.

John, you got that right! When I first pulled it out of my pocket and looked at it out in the woods I freaked, I KNEW which way north was, but the compass said otherwise. Was really a weird sensation.

Re: OT Something's wrong here....

In this case it has nothing to do with being next to the other compass, it's always pointing the wrong way :) I have no plans to fix it, gonna pitch it instead, the last thing I need is a compass I can't trust.

Southern hemisphere compass still point north, they just weight the needle differently.
