I wanted to be a mechanic when i was in the Army but My eyes were not good enough. (slight color blindness), so i was a 13b instead. Ive been turning wrenches since 96. First on semi trailers, but for the past five years been working on the refrigeration units.

4x4 as a reservist. i walked into the recruiters office when i was 25??? the recruiter was new and went through the whole shpeal. i thought it was all bs and pushed all the propaganda away and said look i just wanna be a machine gunner and shoot things. next day i was in kcmo at the meps center enlisting as an tow gunner. (anti heavy armor, **** azvab, turns out i was a genius still after being out of high school and the standardized testing system)
anyway, i addressed the "miss print" and there i was behind some of the best optics the military had to offer instead of being shaken stupid behind a 240g or m2. like i said i was cross trained abit...i was dead nuts with the mk19.

ive been wrenching and learning since about 97? started off as a referb mechanic in st louis for a company referbing the yellow freight conversion dollies.

i was a race driving fool when i worked for them. now some how i mettle through as a mech where im at here. ive always been more of a tinkerer.


that may have been more than anyone really asked oh well.

you mean the sc150? from the pictures its just like the bubble magus. still breaking in. i may throw in the vinegar as suggested to speed it along.

the sump is still a bit of a way off so i may just let it run as is.

ill post a pic soon.

Yes that one. Looks like it belongs on a space shuttle to purify water

it look to be good quality acrylic. collection cup seals tight. and if need be easy to pull in and out without having to pull the sump out. easy to adj from wet to dry. so far.
