Hey some of the best Chili I've had is at small Rallies where everyone brings a can of some chili, stew and/or? it all gets mixed together in a big pot - Biker Chili.

Whipped up this sterling silver fork bracelet for mom for Christmas. It's a little marred up from bending it but still came out pretty decent I think. Hopefully she doesnt read ADV!

It is not mounted in a flexible bushing, but there are a lot of sealed bearings missing from what you see here. There is no contact between metal parts and I can't say what the life span is of a pump....... There are no lubricants used and there is a company (not us) that makes similarly designed pumps as small as .2cfm and as big as 45cfm and up to 120psi. Our facility consumes a lot of air, and I mean A LOT between a dozen or so vertical and horizontal CNC mills and an equal amount of CNC lathes not to mention media blasting and blow guns all over the place. We have two scroll units about the size of a refrigerator that supply sufficient pressure and volume for the entire shop, and when they are running if you stand next to them you can only hear them hum.

I wish I could tell you more, but I assure you, the details are incredible.
an intrinsically safe, high volume, low/no surge design....my imagination is running wild.

I like Hormel Chili better than Naleys, good road food...now available in Canada.
Oh yeah! Good catch. In our kitchen it's F.I.S.T., first in stays there.

Any guesses what this is for? It still needs a little something something on the bottom for flow control.

It's an odd one for a still. Besides, that would be illegal, and nobody on ADV would do a thing like that.
