A couple of products being reviewed this weekend have me excited. For starters I will be taking a look at a new HID Flashlight from Stanley. I charged it last night, and my initial impression is that this light is a beast. I will have more on this later, but I can’t wait to get this and the other lights up to the lake this weekend where I have open area and lots of wildlife to see.
The other product is a tool we have been waiting to demo for quite some time, a thermal imager model TI-32 from Fluke. It has just arrived and has to be back to the Manufacturer on Monday. I have had requests to check out wiring, wet spots behind walls and believe it or not, my 10 year old daughter wants me to venture into the dusty, musty old attic and look for ghosts. She saw the ghost hunters on TV last week use a similar model to show spectral IR Images. I was laughing when I watched the episode. I don’t know much about using Thermographers, but I do know attributing cold spots on ceilings in very old houses to being ghosts when it is very likely more a sign of poor insulation. I know it’s not as much fun as seeing ghosts, but I will convince my daughter that if we see cold spots, daddy has a special way of making ghosts disappear and it’s called R-13 a very secret weapon developed by large international companies. My secret weapon is pink, because ghosts hate pink, especially in attics and crawl spaces.
I also will be finishing up my test of Milwaukee’s Paint Sprayer System. Already I have come to the conclusion attaching a gallon of paint to an airless sprayer system, is akin to pouring a pint of gas into a 1971 Chrysler New Yorker. It is not going to get you very far, but when you, you go in style.
