    Gee that sounds like a high quality pump for pumping spam around an airplane. I am sure Boeing will jump right on that. Who knew it was lack of spam that caused two plane crashes.

    I wonder if worn out inserts are something you could use to braze into tools. What voltage are hand tools like drills and grinders? 400 volts seems high for corded tools.
