Meting Gords tomorrow
He's got a job two hours from here. 4 hours for him, two for me.

Pics will be included.

The assistants will be delighted - someone new to sniff. Smile

At a vape shop. Where Todd works.

RE: Meting Gords tomorrow
Sounds like a blast, take lots of pics.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Ok. So. I'm here because a certain compressor manufacturer wont admit their compressor pulley taper pins need case hardening to cope with the high pressures of the new refrigerant.

Here's the new compressor fitted, replacing a compressor less than six months old.

This little fridge mantains the pressure in this co2 tank, you can see my transit next to it for scale.

Yes its overcast, but the rain has held off for the important bit. The compressor has been pressure tested, replacement belts fitted and all bolted down. One good thing about these units is they have valve ports on both the suction and discharge, allowing you to close off the compressor from the system, replace it and evacuate the crankcase without needing to recover the gas. It was always useful in the rare event of failure, now its a gift from forward thinking engineers that they did this, many dont.

Next thing to address is the high tank pressure. There's not much you do here other than use the extra large recovery unit.....

I dont fancy blowing off liquid, despite the cloud photo opportunity, its really really fucking loud blowing vapoyr off, never mind liquid. I'm now just letting the compressor evacuate to kill time before I head north to meet Don.

RE: Meting Gords tomorrow
Made it there and back. We found the vape shop that Todd works in but he wasn't there. It's the usual CE4s, juice and egos. So we had a brew instead. Sadly the pub wouldn't let us vape.

The assistants gained a few fans and even the Furry Maniac was on his best behaviour.

Found my camera where I left it this morning - like a total numpty I forgot to take it with me.

My GPS went violently insane and decided I wanted to take every possible exit off the only sensible route home. There really is only the A90 unless you want to play with the tractors. Usually with leaking tanks of slurry on them. Invariably when there's no chance to pass them for 5 miles. It also seems to have decided that I live somewhere two hours from here. Fortunately my car knows the way up the A90 as it's often had to do it without the presence of my brain.

RE: Meting Gords tomorrow
Gords definitely had nicer mods than mine. That igo M is a mad device! The Paps clone is very nice too. The OB mod is very nice too.

One of my Aquas was playing up, probably because the cell was at 3V! Still it's charged up now, the AWT charger comes with a car lead which is handy when you are cooped up in the car with the assistants for a couple of hours.
