LCN, that is way cool!

I am assuming that was just with air, how much air did it take?

Now the real fun begins, I am anxious to see it in operation with the boiler.

Great work!!

OK, I have not thought this all the way through, just an idea that may be worth investigating!!!

I would suspect that if Spectra is still around, they would want to rebuild the laser themselves, not just send you a new tube. With all the liability issues today, I doubt they would take a chance on someone they don't know. I wish you luck, but I suspect that one just went down for the count.

If I went the solar option my collector would be 4x8. I did some digging to refresh my memory. Water takes 970 BTU per lb to vaporize, and at BRC the boiling point will be about 200 deg F. Your 4x8 collector can porvide about 32000 BTU per day with good sun. Starting at 70 deg F for your greywater,...

Cao, I use solar heat to supplement my house and domestic hot water. I will give you some numbers to work with, you will need a lot of collection area. 1 BTU = 1 lb water raised 1 deg F 1 sqr ft of collector can recover 1000 BTU per day 1 gallon of water weighs 8.33 lbs example 10 gal of water raise...

I would like to hear more about your thoughts on using a peltier cooling system. A peltier cooler is good for about 40 F, which means it can keep ice until ambient temp exceeds 70 F, but the sno kones will be popular when it is much hotter, so probably not a good cooling system.

I would agree with the others that converting to four cylinder steam is the way to go, although my reasoning is slightly different. 1. If you really need an air compressor on board, a small belt driven one could be added with a clutch such that you could disengage it when you needed more drive power...

If you only have 1 ton, I would consider getting a small utility trailer and pulling it. As long as you put it behind something bigger than a compact car, you should not have any problems, and you have also solved the issue for future years. If you have never pulled a trailer before, just slow down ...

You are assuming that the safety feature does indeed work. If it were to fail, or be disabled, it can get ugly. At least when I do something dumb, I do not endanger innocent bystanders.
