My boss goes through those cans of compressed air like nobodys business. You know the ones I'm talking about, $5 for a 10oz. ozone friendly dusting power :D.

Anyway, I started thinking (a rare and frightening occurrence:eek :) why can't I just refill this thing at home. If I just put a valve stem on it, I could fill it up with the compressor.

Do you think it would work?

What psi should I fill it to?

Should I fill it while in full riding gear?

Does leather stop flying metal fragments?

I must be getting old. In the past I would just go ahead and try something like this and only admit it if successful.

Why I remember one time I taped a model rocket engine to a....ah nevermind :D.

That sounds a little dangerous. I think you should just leave the lid off for a while and waith for it to fill up. :D You may have to sneak up on it to put the lid back on so all the air doesn't escape.

Plastic model car?

When i was 10. It was my brother's idea.. man that little car model took off and went airborn about 1-2 feet off the ground across our back yard before touching down and beginning its deathly distintegration across said yard.

Sure it was bound to fail, but someones gotta try...

:D :D :D

Hey, you're not the same guy that strapped a JATO rocket to a Buick are you. Probably not, that guy got plastered on the side of a mountain.

Been there done that. That was one of our first non-rocket uses for a rocket engine. We duct taped a D size engine onto the business end of an arrow. Lit the fuse, launched the arrow from the bow and just at the apex of the flight the rocket engine kicked in. It wasn't until after the arrow disappeared from our sight that we began to worry about where it would land :eek:. We watched the news for a couple days after, but saw no reports of dangerous objects falling from the skies.

Disclaimer: Kids do not attempt this at home :D

Maybe he likes to turn them upside down and freeze things, thats what I like to do with-em. Actually, we'll go a little further at work just to mess with someone. We'll poor some LOX (liquid oxygen) on on someones hat or shirt and instant popsicle :)

He uses it to clean the crapola that falls into the keyboard of his laptop puter.

I hate to tell you but they sell a nice little bottle that costs around 85 or 90 dollars, it is made to fill up with carb cleaner or other type of spray, then compress it with air to make a nice long lasting spray can(provided you keep filling it up with fluid) But i'm sure you could just put air in it and save all kinds of money on those 10 dollar disposable bottles. Just a thought.

Damn Squid, you killed this topic faster than John can suck down Pete's cream filled.....pastery :D

I checked out that site just out of curiosity :rolleyes: and holy cow Squid it must be colder in Canada than I thought and you must be pulling in some serious bank to afford her. Do they have an E-Z finance program or what :D
