Air power? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Looking at the coleman stove, the lanterns, and whatever else we may acquire that requires air pressure to keep running, it occured to me that a tire or two could be pumped up, once a day perhaps, with tubeing rigged to supply air on demand. This would make it more convienient for continued operation when one wasn't around or not inclined to keep refreshing on their beck and call.

Sir, as a Camping Equipment repair person (just one a' the other hats), if you have to pump up a Coleman Lantern or stove while it is in use, you might want to investigate at least a new fuel tank cap. Next would be a new pump valve. If it's losing pressure while running, it is NOT performing correctly.

Strongly recommend against any pressure being used to "push" fuel into a flame (or potential flame) - particularly if someone (adult) isn't right there.

Not a good way to refill a heater.

Good way to lose a house.
