    For those of you who have bought or made a Vortex fog chiller - what is the point of having the intake and outlet pipes on adjacent walls of the chiller? Wouldn't it work just as well if they were on opposite walls? For example: the intake is on the South wall of the chiller. The standard...

    General Halloween
    A long time ago I used to always look at this Halloween Outlet catalog, but we never got anything. I never realized how old it was at the time, but if I could see a real picture of some of the props, or see if they might be available, that would mean a lot. Most of them I haven't been able to...
