Don't know they will work too well in sumps, but in a normal atmosphere, should be fine.

Can cause cause the same sort of problems as Popcorn Lung, from the vapors condensing in your lungs.  It's pretty much like smoking, but without the carbon monoxide.

It's a bloody lottery, isn't it?

There's sort of a graph/curve/continuum thing with "Longevity" on one axis and "Quality of Life" on the other - and you can kinda have lots of either but not both . . . .

It's like the Maintenance Engineer's standard joke/response to customers:  You can have any two of "Good", "Cheap" and "Fast"  - as in: You can have a cheap job and it'll be fast, but it won't be good, or you can have a good job and we can do it fast - but it won't be cheap . . . .

Or, as I tell my service customers:  We charge $65 per hour for our engineers.  Or $100 per hour if the customer is watching.  Or $120 per hour if the customer is watching and helping . . .

It's like when I turned up at the doctors for my annual inspection, completely knackered and unable to even touch my toes. I asked the Doc what the fudge was wrong with me and he said.........

'Remember the twenty years you hoped to gain through clean living, not smoking, avoiding alcohol and not letting excess sexual activity strain you body'?

i said 'Yep'

He said 'Well, this is them'...........

My mistake. your baby, as me old dad used to say!

You're right, it's 150ml / min, or around 6.5 minuets to pump a liter, a bit better than a damp day!

I'm away for a week or so, i'llget around to eventually..........

Original Lister Cs Engines / electric meter
« Last post by vegoil on September 23, 2018, 05:11:46 PM »
hi can anyone help. I have a Lister start-o-matic I installed a old type electric meter ( the type with the rotateng round disk) to keep track of how many units the were produced and used by punting electric into a storage heater

the problem is that when the meter is connected the auto start fires up the generator even if there no load switched on.

what type of digital meter is suitable I need sump-thing that will record and keep the total units used for years even when there is on power being used.

Ha ha!  ;D

Now we are free of the selenium rectifier I put on a bit of load this time... 3KW heater, 1.2KW heater and a 0.5KW lamp done with ease!

Marvelous job of technical writing with a fun narrative, Glort.

The WI section reminded me I must dope my Listeroid WI water with methanol very soon- freezing night time temps are coming!
