It looks like everybody has gotten the locomotive package I sent out last week. The only thing to do now is waiting for them to get back to me.
Just for kicks, I built a solar furnace last weekend using an old satellite dish. A solar furnace is simply a bunch of mirrors oriented to focus the sunlight at a chosen point. The focal point can reach very high temperatures to the point of melting metals. I tried it last week but the sunlight was very limited. Look who was heling me out once again on one of my crazy projects....la belle Christine!
