Well when you do, GoD and I will pow wow with you. He's got some copper tube for a pot, we just need to machine up a base and braze it on. He tells me that he's sorted a source of LN2 and the rental of the transportation jug too.

Just found a place that will sell me dry ice,
BOC Gas & Gear.
FYI they sell it in lots of 5, 10 and 20kg @ $3.91NZ per kg.
Im more than happy with that.

Thanks Battle Moose for the heads up.

Doesnt last long

Use it lots at airNZ engineering for shrinking parts. They get a delivery of 3 bags of pellets 1-2 times a week.

For fun.

Coke bottle + warm water + dry ice
Dry ice on glass - skating rink
dry ice on metal tongs = screaming vibrations

I thought you knew better than to recommend dangerous actions on a public forum.

Hey I didn't say it was dangerous or promote it

Its actually fun.. as in we used them at a haloween party (points to your avatar) one year to make smoke effects around the main room.

Sure it can be bad if you decided to seal such vesels and not let the gas out

I know a pot when I see one.
Dice and cascade are on my list of things to do in the near future. I will make my own pot tho. LD is pretty dam good at building cooling gear. He is right up there with the best.

Still waiting on a new board, as my AW9D Max just doesnt have the FSB needed for this kind of game.

I think Im settled on a Abit IP35 Pro, just need them to get in stock here.

But I did pop down to BOC (actually I sent my wife) to pick up a couple of kg's of pellets to play with.

Here are some modelling pictures.







By the way GoD, do you know where to pick up a heating pad used on a MachI/II/LS or the like here in NZ ?
