So you think them Mexican peppers are HOT ---try a piece of sodium.
The lecture took place in a -- Amphi theater ? semi circular rows and higher in the back.
Being a keen bugger I sat down in front right in front of pan of water , where the sodium
was demonstrated. After a lot of prodding he finally agreed to use a big chunk.
The resulting explosion is difficult to describe , but a piece of sodium hit me right
in the mouth . ---- Fun stuff to play with --that Sodium and Potassium and Calcium
So do I still like sodium cooled valves ? absolutely. great for a turbo.
I seen a lot of them ---but never heard of one breaking open . Some people say they are
weak . The stem seems to be very thick , compared to non sodium.
Seems like things happen where I go ---like the genset ---- I managed to black the
whole school out. The last part of the field rheostat was an open button. DC motor
and commutation flashed---- blew the main fuses for the whole school. A very big school.
And it was winter and dark. (Night-school) --got the strap ? NO I was teachers pet.
I am loaded with those "mishap"? stories. IMHO it is a good way to learn --real fast.
PS : How many of you have the first Rabbit go berserk , right after you got it ? see what
I mean ?.
