General Discussion / Re: 4 days in ICU

What a wake up call for you and your Family. Good advise about not ignoring pains/discomforts especially as we age. I bet they are now directing you to a dietician and advising to change your wicked ways in life. I had to when I got diabetes.
Glad to hear that you have survived and that you are on the mend so take care and take on all the suggestions they make, it really isn't that bad.

More and more people are learning that the health care industry is not necessarily interested in your health. I will not take the Statins they prescribed. Or the blood pressure medicine prescribed 'matter of factly' without consideration. I am pre-diabetic, yet the food they brought me was all Carbs and sugar! I didn't eat any of it, my wife brought me the proper diet (which includes red meat and fat). A year ago I went to a Keto diet, lost 17 lbs in 4 weeks, and my BSL went from an average of 155 to 105. Very little Carbs and as little sugar as possible. To 'take on all suggestions they make' is a fools errand I'm afraid. The drug companies need to keep you sick and treat the symptoms to keep you buying their pills....

General Discussion / 4 days in ICU

A heart attack does not always come as pain in your left arm. Mine was between my shoulders in my back. Last Thursday 11/17 After some time of denial, and increasing discomfort, I decided it was time to go to Urgent Care (they were closing and getting ready to lock the front doors) where they hooked up the wires and saw problems on the Electrocardiogram. An ambulance ride and 45 minutes later, I was at the hospital, in the Cath lab getting 2 stents installed (one artery 100% blocked) in an expedited fashion. Then 3 more stents installed yesterday, (another artery 90% blocked) 4 days in ICU total. Funny thing, that Thursday morning I was in the middle of no where picking up a cement mixer from Marketplace. I worked pretty hard getting it on the trailer and was worn out from using the come-along. Shortly after I got home with it, the discomfort started. Discomfort NOT pain. Pressure. Uncomfortable feeling, not pain. So very lucky it happened here at home. Doing much better now. One of the doctors said, 'With heart issues "Heart Attack pain" means any pain from your navel to your head, not just sharp pain in your left arm".

My message is, do not ignore it or brush it off.

Always great to hear about an engine that's commissioned to do important work.

I thought at a couple points in the video it was turning excessively fast, over 1000. Maybe not.

Besides 'too fast'.....can anyone guess what RPM this unlucky engine achieves?

Always good to see project pics from your shop, nice work.

Very cool. If  you could post a video of it someplace, I'd like to hear it. My only disappointment is it's 1ph not 3ph but it will back up a home for sure.


I think that price is a give away. I've also never had the slightest problem spending other peoples money.
How can you go wrong? I'd so much less boring that the box store rattle traps with their buzzing die cast throw away engines.


It's cool. I'd buy it pronto before the other guy gets it.


Looks quite interesting, keep us posted with more details.

So no pics of the included lighthouse?


So single bearing head. Lots of work to run one with a CS. Top quality looking units for sure.
