Are FETs supposed to glow like that?

Gee I was just thinking that it would be cool to build a solid state PDM modulator to drive a slime-A-Tron off a battery for mobile fester applications so it doesn't kill the battery. The Silme-A-Tron heating element would act as the integrator. A class H Silme-A-Tron driver would waste too much battery power.

Would that be considered a "Class-P" modulator?

I think there was also a brownish strip down the side of the garage after the "incident."

I forget the dates, but remember the 71/72 slimatron an joe fallons
mom's place. timmy barfed in it, and it churned away, globing out
squirts of obnoxious crudolene (another slimatron adverb) frothing
into the air. spontanious barfing did occur (we put pennys in the
fuse box )

then the chuffa mobile, and a farty at roger k1czh's in sudbury
mass (now w1oj). it had a funnel upright attached to the tailpipe.
we'd all piss into the pipe and timmy, after a fasion would fire up
the chuffa. gurgle gurgle gurgle, and pheweeeeeeeeee, out came
heated up pissonlene would rain on everything! bob w1imm caught
roger OJ, pissing into the chuffa as well as others (and me)

I thought it was only a legend, myself. So you're saying, the liquid seen in the photo is actual urine?

slimatron - device used to distil pissoline.  Indeed!

I was thinking the same thing. If my stuff was that brown I would get on the transplant list.

Anybody know if the slime-0-tron  sample rate is constant or does it need to change with density? a slow sample rate on a class p modulator might provide more of a show

But don't forget, it had been stored for a considerable amount of time and allowed to ferment before use.

Ever encounter a chamber pot that was overdue for emptying?

I don't think fresh, un-aged liquid material would produce the desired effect.

Sorry Frank, you presume tubes are the same as valves (see the British).
In this case, the processing sequence is entirely pneumatic with flow rates based on PV=nRT and no electronic spinchtering.

Update:
I have been corrected. Although Ideal Gas Law (above) would appear to apply at first blush, the variables involved more closely resemble fluid dynamics in a hydraulic rather than pneumatic environment.  Sorry for any confusion, it's really not my field.

well paul,
Maybe a simple inverter to a variac would allow the operator BTU adjustment based on status feedback observed.

Between all the innuendo and Skowhegan lingo, I admit confusion. Help me out. TRUE or FALSE:

-The Slime-o-tron contains human urine.
-The 833A filament heats the urine to boiling point.
-The boiled urine flows through a tube to a coffee can, and then back to the 833A.
-The resulting "distilled" human urine is examined and (somehow) measured for "strength".

It is best to listen to Tim give step-by-step construction details and complete explanation of the operation of a slime-o-tron.

-The Slime-o-tron contains human urine.

I always thought the 'unique liquid' was gathered from Tim's 'lungie cup', i.e. mucous for the Slime-o-tron.

See? It's all legend, speculation and rumor. I suggest the FDA launch a 50 million dollar investigation into this device! The public deserves to know the facts.  Roll Eyes

they wouldn't be any more successful at that than they were finding Saddam's WMD's.

Is a Slime-o-tron a terrorist weapon?

or could we drop 50,000 of them into Iran?

That would be a negative. The speculators are all wrong. No investigation needed. A slimatron produces heavy pissolene. Quite clear really.

Yes. the expectorators are all wrong, it's a totally bogus theory on the face of it, since residual salivation would never endure the ravages of evaporation and microbe development in the time it would take to accumulate adequate volume of sputum for an experiment or other scientific pursuit.

Could that have been the one I attended?  I recall the Dean-X 100, a Johnson desk KW, some kind of big Collins leenyar (about 10 kw if IIRC); Dale KW1I and the FAF amongst those in attendance; Dale presenting me a certificate of appreciation for publishing the AM Press/Exchange; Tim and someone discussing transmitter design and drawing schematics on the front of the refrigerator using black dry-erase markers.

But I don't remember anything about the lungie cup.
