Hello all,

This did make me chuckle because I envisioned the same thing at the
Richmond, VA hamfest a couple of weeks ago. 

Some fellow was selling one of those blower/vacuum devices used at your
banks drive up window to move the deposits thru the vacuum tubes.  It was
about 30-36" in diameter and looked like a large thin radial blower or
turbo charger.  He was selling it as a blower to cool BIG amps.  

I can just imagine tube going ballistic (literally.)  Fire one!
