                That thing is really cool, I want one!

                No guards at all looks easy and handy to use.

                Be sure to mount it safely above waist high.

                  Sorry guys, not for sale and good luck finding one. Well I found that this design was patented in Aug. 1941 and a newer design was patented in 1945. and apparently they were also foot operated according to an ad in a 1945 "Popular Mechanics". 140 lbs of air pressure will almost crush the can, I'm going to try to hook up my port-a-power to it. I'm going to be passing thru Glendale Ariz on the 31, plan on stopping for a few hours, should I bring it with me?
