Hey,

Errant, bugs and I are taking part in the 48 hour sci-fi film challenge[1] (as part of the London Sci-fi film festival[2]) in a couple of weeks time and the group we're doing it with would like to use a smoke machine - can we borrow the space's one (and if possible associated fuel etc which will be replaced). I'm not sure who's it is hence asking here. 

Thanks

Sam

Condition 1:

You add it to the wiki.

I didn't realise that the smoke machine belonged to the space!

More than happy to (assuming it is the space's)

I didn't realise that the smoke machine belonged to the space!

That's part of it: I'm not sure if it does or not

Whilst clearing up for the space extension party, I picked the smoke
machine up out of a pile of swarf from the mill. You might want to take
the case off and clean the insides before powering it up. I meant to go
back and check it at some point but forgot, sorry.

I'll bare this in mind and make sure I give it a once over, thanks!

It was monorail tom's, but he donated it to the space.

Awesome! Thanks a lot. No plans to hack it, just possibly use it for steam effects with the steam engines.

For steam effects it generally looks better if the smoke dissipates very quickly, diluting the fluid 5:1 or
even 10:1 with distilled water will do the trick.
