I don't know how many of you guys have seen Napolean Dynamite, but if you haven't you should.

I just saw a screen capture of the "time machine", and realized that part of it was made of out PVC fittings, including half of a flowspan telescoping coupler (slipfix).

Funny stuff.

Love that movie. Did you notice at the very end of the movie when they are playing teather ball, that there are gear drive rotors running behind them, but they sound like maxi paws.

R-50's look like gear drives, but have a impact sound (ball drive really).

I'll have to look again.

Umm, me thinks that the R-50s don't sound like impacts. FWIW, the R-50s have that constant speed gear sound regardless of which way the head is turning while the impacts do not.

At any rate, I wouldn't try to pass through the airport terminal with such a device that you show in that picture, Jon.

Actually they make a 'clucking' sound - hence the nickname "Chicken-in-a-bucket" :rolleyes:

I actually made a device similar to this back in high school for an electronics class. A very similar metal box with five neon lights on top of it, , a speaker, and a switch. The label on it said "UNIVAC", but the unit was nothing more than a light flashing funny sounding thing. Now mind you, but this was back before LEDs. The thing had a 90 volt battery in it.

What's this "Chicken-in-a-bucket" R-50 stuff? Well let me tell you that these little chicks have been clucking away flawlessly at my place for a number of years now. Can't get no respect. So... if R-50s cluck, then what do impact heads do??? Hiss like snake heads?
