Cool. So they have finally been deemed safe for general population usage.

What was the show price?

for a tinkerer mine works well for me. for the average user the AI one is a much better unit. i'll consider getting one someday.
OMG! That thing is awesome. I'm trying to figure it out. You put in silicone oil into the quick disconnect between the torch end and the reservoir with the sighting window? Plug it back together and fill the reservoir by cranking on a tank at the propane torch end holding it upside down? How do you get the mixed gas into your mags? Do you have an adaptor which connects to the upper end to connect a valved adaptor to a 3/4" flanged adaptor to adapt to your mag? Adaptor inception!

It's like I took my entire bin of pneumatic fittings and lego'ed together a 2' extension line.

I've been using one of Carl's prototypes for years...works like a charm.

I usually have one at games and we oil up a bunch of cans at a session.

Next up from AI...scented silicone oil....

This contraption of mine came around with me questioning how well silicone oil actually mixes/blends with propane. I was thinking it would be more like oil & water together but it does mix ok and seems to blend in with a little shaking. How I did testing was put oil on top of the ball valve & put a plug over it. Then hook up to propane tank & fill the sight glass resovoir & remove tank. Opening up the ball valve would let the oil run in and I could see what was going on. I dumped & washed out the glass area during my testing. Now when I want to fill oil in gas, I put oil in glass area through ball valve then put tank on inverted and allow propane into glass area. Shake well & stand upright. Most of the time it will all run back into tank. If not, toss tank in freezer for a few min then reconnect and the pressure drop in tank will take it in.

Next trial for me I have some wintergreen oil I'll put in a tank. Then set off a 'nade blank and see how it smells...

Well I gave it a try this morning. I didn't have a 100% brand new propane tank, but one that was pretty much full. I put 5ml of wintergreen oil in it and gave it a good shake. Filled up an impact 'nade to blank fire and while filling, my madbull adapter was leaking at the fill valve a bit and you could smell the wintergreen along with the propane. After blank fire you could smell the wintergreen in the air with the propane. It does help mask the mercaptan odor some. Not sure if it will mask the acetylene that makes mapp gas stink real bad.

Need to invent some sort of carbon scrubber filter to strip the stink out.

Even now, like 5 min after testing, the wintergreen/propane scent still lightly lingers in the air.

Just an update on smell. I pulled that same tank out to gas up some (leaky ) mags and there was next to no propane stink. Very minty lol.

Could always pump some skunk scent into your 'nades for "MAXIMUM ROOM CLEARING POWER"
