I have refillable pressurized bottles as well, use them with prepping for my powder coating hobby. My compressor water drier is not that reliable. Much safer to use this on sensitive electronics. Compressor air contains contaminants.

Plus, it was easier giving extra cans to the old man and his friend.

Which is worse... the nasty water or the oil that you get out of it? ;) I get your point about using these cans for electronics. Congrats on the deal!

Nice score on the compressed air. I'm a cheap skate, take the covers off the computers in the house and set them on a table on my deck. Use the leaf blower! Very fast!

Gotta be careful though, one time I blew one of the lighter desktops off the table with the 250mph wind blast!:oops:

I've thought about using my backpack leaf blower on a few things, good idea!

I have a portable air tank that I've been filling at my local FD. It's dried air for use in SCUBA and SCBA tanks. No moisture or oil problems like with my home compressor. I use it to refill my reusable dusters.

Since you seem to have a thing about dusting, is that how you came up with your screenname ???

I have done a lot of cleaning.

I have a friend in the Marine's that said he did the same in Afghanistan. I think I could really use an M42 Duster to drive when traffic is bad in Dallas/Fort Worth. (y)

And I'll be darned if I can find the cool vid you used to have a link to. That and an A10 Tank Killer vid were my favorite.

Found this while looking for it though... pretty funny, and somewhat on-topic!

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

  • @ kb9ghn:
    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
