workshop shared-space

Post  roddie on Fri May 27, 2016 3:03 pm

When your like me.. with a small workshop located in the basement/laundry-room.. with two litter-boxes serving three cats.. it's helpful to have some odor-control. Back in 2012, we bought an automatic "Lysol" unit that mounts to the wall.. and uses x2 AA batteries.. and a replaceable aerosol cartridge. It has four frequency settings; off, 9min. 18 min. and 36 min. I get approx. one year of battery life using the 18 min. setting.. and at that setting.. the cartridge lasts for 45-60 days. It's important to mount it higher than eye-level.. Laughing



The cartridges are available in several delightful scents.. depending upon your preference.. and mood.



What I like the most; other than this being a very reliable unit for the last four years.. is that it's use has provided me with a large supply of "caps" that serve as terrific engine-cowlings for 1/2A-size airplanes!!




I used one on my Rare Bear CEF Reed-Speed model.





If your modelling a 1/2A scale-model airplane that had a radial/rotary engine.. there's a good chance that there's enough height in the nose to make a mount for a cowling, using one of these caps. There's no "inner-fitting" that's found on some caps. These are hollow. I used a hole-saw to cut the holes for the crank-nose and engine cylinder.

My favourite scents for a workshop air freshener would be:
- Single Malt
- Road dust with a hint of motor oil mist (you know, the way an old motorcycle smells after a ride)
- Motor oil mist with a touch of road dust
- Burnt castor oil
- Celluloid glue with dope

So far no luck finding them, I think Johnson should carry at least some of them Huh...

Oh yes, that Rare Bear is a beauty Cool

Ha ha.. You may be onto something here! "Biker-scents"!! Motor-Head scents"... "Vintage Cam2 racing-fuel scents" "Diesel-exhaust scents"... Laughing These are the things that get a guy's heart pumping! Infuse with "rose-petals"... and you have complete bliss!!!
