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
