Cool! I can now look straight up. Looks like they toned down the aspect ratio a bit, the distortion is not as bad. It's too bad this type of video don't work in IE or Firefox, I guess it's early days still.

As for your moving blankets on the wall (they work well BTW) maybe you can build some "sound panels" like Dave from the EEVblog here: https://youtu.be/JQLDIrS8deU

I'm not familiar with kerosene pressure lanterns and have only dealt with Coleman products, but the workings of the tank/pump assembly looks to be similar.

You probably know this already but I'll throw it out there for others who don't know; on my Coleman pressurized white gas products, I have to bottom out the pump stem and turn the pump knob counter clockwise to open that valve before I can pump any pressure into the tank, I don't know if the Butterfly lantern is like that or not.

From your description of the pressurization problem it sure sounds like a sticking check valve down in the bottom of that pump chamber (I'm just guessing).

Here's a link that helped me with repairing my stuff (if anything it has pictures):

Thanks for the video!

+William Lee Cool. It doesn't feel like there is anything down in there that will turn either way. Not that I can feel, anyway (but I have been known to be dumb, lol). Though I intend to investigate more closely this afternoon!

What you've learned as an apprentice serves you well, one can see it by how you ran your cables in that box.
I really like these kind of videos, keep 'em coming!

Thanks, man!  I think I made a mistake, though....  See, I think I put that ground wire under the wrong lug....  I b'lieve it is just supposed to go into the bar and then the big lug is supposed to go to the subpanel in the house.  Oops, heh!  Ought to still be enough extra in there to fix it, though.

I think you got a good handle on it now, although I'd like to see you lose that steel tank and get a good poly one.
It would be interesting to see how much the temperature of the coolant in that tank rises over a day with all of the work stations rendering at full bore, or maybe spot check the temp of the hot side copper tubing with an infrared thermometer.

Pretty cool video! Best viewed in the Google Chrome browser or an Android phone/tablet, this way you get on-screen controls that lets you pan around the room even when the video is paused.

Hey Ryan, You might want to correct the spelling in your lower thirds, your company name is missing the letter "c".

Good video EXCEPT for one thing, the camera person needs to get a clue!
When the Ford guy is explaining something on the engine, the turbo in this case, and he's obviously pointing to the part he's talking about, IT NEEDS TO BE IN FRAME!

Good review! Thanks for the empirical data, I'll take the data from real world testing over lab-derived  any day.

I've laid this out before but it's time to do it again, because it's coming folks.The recent ditty on how 'nobody needs more than $3m for re

Saturday October 02, 2010 around noon. I told my neighbor that I really should have my tank pumped out and he gave me the number to Mr. Clean in Gould City. It wasn't noon yet so I took a chance and called to see if I could still have it done today. I told them that the tank hatches were cleared and accessible because I was doing some minor repairs to the tank connections. Mr. Clean told me that they had a truck that can stop by on their way back to the shop. The truck pulled into the drive at the time given to me and made short work of pumping the tank clean, took less than one hour, and this all happened on a Saturday. Color me impressed!
