Was at the junk yard to day and found a old carbonator. It was a ( Dandy Carbonator Mfd. By "The Liquid" Carbonic Company). I was wondering if it was worth saving from the smelter. I'll have to go back Sunday to get it before it gets buried. I unscrewed the name plate.\

Aren't TIG torch coolers basically just carbonator pumps with some HVAC stuff and a tank?

It's pretty easy to make your own carbonated water at home, here's where I learned: http://truetex.com/carbonation.htm

That method works great and I used it when my kids were preteens and strung out on pop. I let them make their own for awhile and I don't think they will ever forget those heaping piles of sugar that went into those bottles. My kids are now young adults and neither of them drink soda pop any more.
