Damn!
It looks dangerous as hell...

Oh and ya, that did sound like Flash Gordan's spaceship :lol:
I'll bet you could have bought a thousand of those stove parts for what that thing costs.
Seriously if there is ever one that makes it to the market it'll make childs play out of restoring anything.

I googled the heck out of this and found the dealer but no confirmed price. I think its basically "if you have to ask, you can't afford it".
http://www.cleanlaser.de/wEnglish/unter ... or=2110029
I did find one person throwing a price out there which confirms my suspicion. (this is supposedly what they cost, I couldn't confirm it but I don't doubt it either)

It’s real, and can be yours at the low low price of $280,000 USD for a 300 Watt unit. Or if that ain’t enough toast for your toaster, for only $380,000 USD you can pick up the 500 Watt unit.

Oh hey what the heck, I'll buy two! :eBay:
:D

:lol: Harbor Freight should be selling them cheap, say $100,000.

Maybe, hopefully after a few years or more :roll: the price will come down to where we could afford it.
How many other things in life, like computers were priced so high that only NASA could only afford it and now we carry laptops with more power.
I hope they get it in gear because I have a lot of projects to get done. :wink:

Vinegar is $2.95 a gallon at Dollar General.

There's a beveled tooth gear about 4 inches in diameter submerged under the level of the vinegar. Everything above the vinegar "grew" while soaking for a few days. Went and took a picture of the gear. It's been done for a couple weeks and is starting to rust again. Will give it a fresh vinegar bath and baking soda water rinse when ready to prime

Scrivet you are right. I have used vinegar many times and it does a great job. I have a 30 gal electrolysis tank, and am building a 100 gal tank. It may take a day or two but I'm in no real hurry.

Ok, I am going to suggest this Vinegar vs. Electrolysis thing is a topic to start a new thread with, because I would like to see that explored in more depth. I've seen a number of posts on electrolysis over the years, but this is the first mention I recall seeing of the vinegar method.

As for the magic rust-be-gone wand, boy, I can think of 1001 uses for that! But that price is still a little steep... :shock:

Vinegar

Postby Charles (49) Mo » Tue Mar 22, 2016 2:45 am

Be VERY CAUTIOUS of how long you leave a part in vinegar. I put a 1" NPT tap in vinegar and forgot about it. By the time I remembered it, the vinegar acid ruined the tap. Almost completely ate all the threads off the tap. Check the piece more often than I did and be shure to brush off all the crud so you can see the part. :shock:

Yeah, what he said. I soaked a IH carb overnight (maybe two nights) and that was enough to eat the threads on the inlet and the "ears" going to the manifold.
