Thanks Bill!  Yeah, I like how it runs.  Went for about 10 minutes last night on about 1/3 fill of the little alky cup.

Thanks Gary.  I have it sitting atop the liquor cabinet at home, though it needs to move again before the holidays.  We've been painting rooms and refinishing furniture, now that the furniture wreckers boys are back in college and we have the house to ourselves again for a little while.  I hope to have some shop time soon (maybe finish up my stove fan Stirling?), but work has been piling on lately, you'd not think there was an epidemic...except for certain critical suppliers for whom we (I) have to design workarounds...sigh.
