Waldo, just run to the nearest hardware store and pick up some food grade clear tubing....a zip tie or two...(tightly clamped).... will hold it fast to the muffler and you can secure the other end to the landing gear........that way you can divert your exhaust far away from the lens.......I learned this the hard way as I ruined a camera years ago getting too much schmutz on it!

Just more of the same, sales. This might be a transitional job until my friend gets his commercial development business going enough to afford me. I jus couldn't wait any longer. And yes, that was fast, but for some reason I am always lucky like that. Go figure? I'm just thankful that I am!

Waldo it sounds like your working harder on vacation than at work. When do you return?
Have you got that G26 running good now.

Congratulations Plow! You sounded unhappy at your last job so it was time for a change, yes? Good!

On another note......I'm looking for parts for a unique fan similar to this picture. If you have seen one or know of where I might find one or parts of one I'd like to hear about it. I restore fans as a hobby and I thought I'd put out the first question that T_ _ _taholics might have some difficulty with.

p.s.....the fan is a RotoBeam

Snowman thanks I have a few diverters I can use but a nice long tube might be just the ticket, I could have just turned the muffler end down but I wasn't even thinking that way as I was too excited to get the test under way lol it was facing out and up and usually all I have to wipe down the top of the wing but that's where the camera is now lol well not in a direct line but close enough to collect a little mist of exhaust during right turns saw that fan on American Pickers just last night I take it you tried to google it already.

Kerwin unfortunately this is relaxing compared to my job lol been cleaning down the house everyday and also painted a few more rooms over the last 2 days for the new agent is coming tomorrow to get this baby back on the market. And good luck to your bro that's got to be hard on everyone.

Plow dang man that's awesome you have job turn arounds like I turn over flap jacks lol congrats and good luck in the new position
