Hey all. I've been meaning to move my ArIon for a while now since it is so bulky and space consuming. Finally got around to it today. Now it vents the heat out the window and is very much out of the way of daily life. A few FS mirrors, some double sided duct tape, a couple angle brackets, and some push pins later:

Very nice permanent set up! I like it. Do you plan to run it 24/7?

Haha, no, lol. My electric bill would make me cry. I do plan on running it a few hours each day during the winter though, it will literally replace my space heater.

If I had a cheap source for easily mountable and alignable FS mirrors I would love to "outline" my walls with the mixed beam and run it a lot more often. Unfortunately they tend to be expensive and hard to mount/align so that isn't realistically going to happen.

Check out these pics- one like these posted by 'GooeyGus' posted made me obsessed
with argons-- sadly the supplier has nor more and I sold all my extras-

PLEASE SEE this:

ML owners have owned exotic shades of green for a LONG time.

When you go the Mark's thread I would be very grateful if you would +rep him..

I think he may still be lurking here at LPF but serious health issues (AFAIK) have taken greemmechanic from us.
maybe seeing a bump in his rep will bring him back to us-he is by far the most friendly and helpful member I have had the pleasure to know both here a LPF and in person.

I sold him that ML and delivered it to Florida by hand (! from Texas!).

some + rep with a note to 'please return to LPF' could convince him to re-join us..


Mark has been a master mechanic forever- and come to his customers with his van full of tools- I was told by his wife that he has been known to repair cars for the elderly and
disabled folks around Fl and only charge for the parts. So he has been pyying forward before that phrase was even invented-- Here is your chance to do some yourself,
PLUS REP GM (< btw- his is serious about protecting our environment but never polluting
Any solvents- or oils or fluids is given to the recyclers- and NEVER just dumped.

TY for reading this post and an advance TY for the help.
