Re: Poofer pilot light igniter question

Ten feet from the ground is the minimum height requirement for motorized vehicles on the Playa. There really is not a standard for Human powered vehicles as they do not require a DMV license. BUT, you are doing the right thing as the BLM push this year is safety. I feel it is only a matter of time b...

Re: Poofer pilot light igniter question

I would leave the pilot on all of the time. (when you are with the vehicle) Then there is no delay time to firing your poofer.

Re: Poofer pilot light igniter question

Is your copper tubing exposed to the open air or have your surrounded it with steel wool, or preferably, stainless steel wool? Surrounding it with SSW will shield it from the wind and at the same time allow more O2 around your flame creating a cleaner burn.

Re: SIDESHOW! Carnival of Smoke and Mirrors

That would make a really nice addition to a Theme Camp. Especially if you can allow others to operate it. Interactive fire art is always a crowd pleaser.

The rest of you who want stickers will just have to stop by Brain Freeze / Got Stickers Camp this year, located within Black Rock Power CO-OP. Should be in the 4:30 neighborhood......

Maybe the tone is a little sour because Dan did the bulk of the cleanup when over 95% of those who volunteered to assist failed to show up. Some people make things happen and others simply talk about.

Re: Flame effects tips?

Scuba tanks are rated for much higher pressures than propane can achieve. As long as the tanks are not modified, IE: welded on or new openings drilled, the tanks will make fine accumulators.

Not everyone in my Village is purchasing two tickets, though they have the option. In fact our Village, which has over 350 people, left at least 13% of the possible ticket sales on the table. And that is assuming that everyone purchases the two tickets allotted. The two reasons stated in the previou...

Re: Professional Playa Power Protocols

One of the primary reasons for sending three phase to each panel is so we can balance the load. Each cable is marked and if the load exceeds 15-20% out of balance, it is a very simple matter to find which line is pulling more currect and switch them. We balanced the loads every afternoon during peak...

All of our runs are 5 wire three phase to the sub panels. While it would save some weight to use a smaller ground, we use 00 on all of the wires except from the genny to the main panel.

The 50A RVs that we plugged into a 30A circuit would not run a second AC unit. Some of them had random other items that would not function, IE: various interior edison recepticles etc. The microwaves still worked. One had a fake fireplace that was also a heater, it would not function on 30A.
