Looking for help.
Electrically, it’s a capacitor. Maybe your dad was able to replicate the “flux capacitor”.
Perhaps it is a catalyser ? If so, it could be of a rare metal, perhaps platinum. Or it could be very common like the air ionizer someone mentioned.
Nah,we had one that doubled as a saxophone.
You selling surplus widget parts again ?
Ask Tonto. He should know.
I’m almost betting that you practically tripped over the Air Purifier to get to the box/drawer/cupboard that contained these 3 little items.
This mystery is getting weirder and weirder........
Check item for microscopic fly guts within the mesh!!
And whatever you do, do not dress your miniature doberman in a flotation vest and watch it dance around the living room on its tippy toes. Your stitches will remind you. Huh, Pete :o)
Well, I guess I have the last three in existence.
3 x $125,000 = $375,000. They're yours for only $350,000 (volume discount)!!!
I knew it looked vaguely familiar, but with the advent of computers, I haven't used one in quite awhile - I wonder if they're collectors items???
Only the one’s that got activated at the SPR.
Since you say it was stored with silver, there is a chance that it is an electrolytic cleaning plate. These plates are used with a solution to remove patina from antique silver.
Thanks for your input. I see it brought back some good but painful memories.
Thanks for your input. Guess I’ll be on some vicodin again.
I have about 6 left from my other surgery but I bet they’re out of date.
Thanks for your input.
Oh boy! That bad ?
People have been hiding their treasure since prehistory. It’s not a bad idea, really, as long as those you care about know where it is hidden.
I had a Spanish friend whose family still had a hacienda in Mexico. While cleaning out an old water well, they discovered some displaced stones, behind which where the armor of a Conquistador, along with some other valuables. Needless to say, they did not inform the authorities.
I looked at that possibility, too...I just think that he didn’t want to put it in a junk drawer and the purifier is “right there”.
My Dad is taking Ibuprophen, so maybe it’s not all that bad.
I saw him Sunday, and his surgery was the Friday before.
He did seem uncomfortable, but he also wasn’t taking as many pills as he should to keep the pain away.
Being a reasonable person (meaning a woman like me) you will follow doctor’s suggestions as to how much to take to keep the pain tolerable.
It seems like this surgery is done a lot. Sister in law did just fine and Dad will heal up too.
The hernia may have saved Dad’s life. Because he was in pain from the hernia, when he finally went in to see a doc about it (3 months after the pain started!), the doc looked over his whole body and found a suspicious skin area that they took a biopsy of. We found out at his check up yesterday that it was malignant skin cancer. My mother did not sound alarmed when she told me this yesterday. So the docs must think they got it all. It was quite a deep incision. That is also hurting him, besides the hernia surgery. The surgeries were done a few days apart.
Best of luck and heal up real fast and get back to FR, asap!
