Default My smoke machine setup (video)

Hi Folks,

As promised, I'm posting a video showing how I found my vacuum leaks with a DIY smoke machine. Can't seem to embed, so here's the link.

Like the diy, I'll have to remember this. I didn't hear you mention it, is that just a soldering iron in the middle to get it smoking?

Yea - I realized I forgot to mention the soldering iron - and it looks like Youtube got rid of all annotations - so I included it in the description. I got a cheap walmart soldering iron which leaked air at the top - so I had to glop some epoxy on the top of that too.

jp2code - how did you embed the video? I tried wrapping the iframe in html blocks, but no go. Is there an html view on the post form?

Sure. It's easy.

This is your video link:

https://youtu.be/5KE8nluj2z0

There are 2 parts.

1) The YouTube website: https://youtu.be/

and

2) Your video ID: 5KE8nluj2z0

To embed it, just take your video ID and place it between the YouTube tags which start with [youtube] and end with [/ youtube] (omitting the additional space).

If you quote my reply above that has your embedded video, you will see the tags in the quoted text.

I used a Halloween smoke machine when I tested for leaks on my former 93, had it already so I used it.

And you plugged the air holes with a rag.

You cheap bastard.
