I once had a Henry 2K-3 in which I installed Mr. Measures' suppressor kit.  
I thought I was doing a good thing.  The first time I put it on 15 meters 
several of the resistors exploded much as a shotgun shell would do. I 
promptly went back to the Henry factory suppressors and never had another 
problem, nor did I have a problem prior to that.  For some stupid reason I 
was convinced that that bit of nichrome was going to save me from eminent 
disaster.  In my 25 years of hamming, never have I experienced a parasitic 
with my Henry 2K-3 (2x3-500z's), My AL1200 (3cx1200A7), or my Henry 3K 
Classic X (8877).

This suppressor kit thing reminds me of the travelling salesman selling cure 
all elixir out of the back of his wagon.  "Guaranteed to cure your gold 
sputtered meatballs...."
