Electrical Smoke Re-concentrator for antique British motorcycles.
Poof. Whoops. Is red positive? A well-known principle of electronic devices is the fact that they operate on a distinctive type of rather pungent smoke. As long as itís retained within the componentry of the
gadget in question, all is well. However, the slightest bungle or confusion (polarity mis-match, over voltage event) often results in it escaping. Never fear such an occurrence again with the genuine E.S.R.
unit. This hand-cranked unit (no electricity!) will quickly scavenge all the odiferous matter wafting around the area and will then store and concentrate it in the quartz-lined receptacle in the middle of
this flashlight-sized unit. The other end of the unit provides a titanium-tipped, multi-component compatible injection device for replacing the smoke into the semiconductor, capacitor, or inductor in
question. A must-have item for any shop, especially if youíre an idiot.
ELECTRICAL THEORY OF SMOKE...BY JOSEPH LUCAS
Positive ground depends upon proper circuit functioning, the transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral manifestation known as "smoke". Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work; we
know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of the electrical system, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical testing.
When, for example, the smoke escapes from an electrical component (i.e., say, a Lucas voltage regulator), it will be observed that the component stops working. The function of the wire harness is to carry the smoke from
one device to another; when the wire harness "springs a leak", and lets all the smoke out of the system, nothing works afterwards. Starter motors were frowned upon in British Automobiles for some time, largely because
they consume large quantities of smoke, requiring very large wires.
It has been noted that Lucas components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than Bosch or generic Japanese electrics. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British and all things British leak. British
engines leak oil, shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brakes leak fluid, British tires leak air and the British defense establishment leaks secrets...so, naturally, British electronics leak smoke.
