|Thread: Huxtable Hot Air Engine|
Thanks Michael, really impressed with the Baker Fan and how well they are working on small stirling and steam engines, these were originally designed by a Mr. A.D. Baker to test steam engines and run them in as they left the factory the Baker Company Factory. From Google "A Baker Fan is a simple air-resistance device used run off an engine via a belt and the faster its turned, the harder it is to turn and puts a load on the engine".

Thanks Bob for that anecdote enjoyed reading it.
Thanks all and thanks for the links Michael.
I have the majority of these old ads framed and up on the walls of the room where my steam engine collection resides. The ephemera really ads a touch of nostalgia.

|Thread: My easy solution to No More Clogged Spray Paint Rattle Cans|
G'day I like my idea better
I have so many different brands of cans and nearly every nozzle is different, this was I know the right nozzle is with the right can. And did you notice that each time I blew the turps out the nozzle it went further as the paint cleared internally? But whatever works best for you....its better than full cans of paint that are blocked!
Cheers Ian hope it works as easy for you as it does for me.
G'day Hopper, been there mate as well. My swearing came from the next time I went to spray something though because of the big droplets coming out because I'd deformed the nozzle outlet with the wire
As explained in the video I spray lots of small parts. There's no way there's going to be enough propellent in the can to keep cleaning the nozzle by inverting it each time I spray something.
