I remember posting in this thread about forty years ago.
OK, maybe three or four years ago, anyway, I said it looks like one of those mini particle accelerators.
Just put a couple of straps on it, sling it over your back. A 'Backtop' or 'Backbook', monitor around the
front a la Bob Dylans harmonica and a mouse in your pocket (in your case a baby seal).
Anyway, I love it. Great work.
Being in the process of making a backpack, my only question would be how much does this little monster weigh? It's like a lawnmower engine and 4 kitchen faucets, you'd throw your back out!
@Attila - Thank you, sir.
It definitely feels like that extra zero. When I started it back up after the long break and it barf'd dust balls out... Yeah. The power requirement alone prevents me from backpacking it. Pockets are reserved for weasels.
@InsolentGnome - Plus a liter of water. You got me wondering. The bathroom scale says it's a mere 25 pounds, (and I need to lose about the same. ) I think the density of it makes it seem heavier, like a sack of mortar.
Plus the fact that it just looks like a lot of metal. I think a brain just sees that and thinks 'heavy'. I would have never guessed 25 pounds, but when you think about the size, makes sense.
