  • Relics in my basement...

    In keeping with my threads always having some mention of Turbojets in it...

    The platform at my 2nd department had a 1715 Turbojet on it as a spare nozzle, and the selector ring wouldn't go into flush on it. I offered to take it apart and lubricate the inner workings having done a couple of others. The Deputy Chief responded:, "You wanna work on that? Follow me."

    So now I have 4 1715's, a 1720(pistol grip), a pair of older SM-20F Select O Matics and a TSM-15F plus shut off. Also was handed two Akron and 2 Elkhart field service kits.

    I guess the Deputy wants two good Turbojets out of the 5. The Select O Matics; one SM-20 is in really good shape, the other is pretty rough. I have yet to find any literature from Elkhart of the TSM-15 actually existing.

    No good deed and all that...my wife was slightly annoyed when I brought them into the basement...
    Two departments, twice the fun...

    If she's annoyed enough not to talk to you, at least you'll be able to work on them in peace... ;-)

    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
