And now, here's the full saga of my attempts to convert a later-model Sniffer into something approaching screen accuracy.

The tale begins in June. I received a box of items that had previously belonged to an Oklahoma GB named Patrick Hurd.

Jump to the 5:33 mark if you just want to see the Sniffer portion.

I bought a lot of parts for it at first that for various reasons got upgraded with better parts later.

In this video, I talk about a very humbling moment when someone with whom I'd gotten a bit snippy found me an actual old-stock Bacharach aspirator bulb...

Big thanks to all the folks that helped out (most of whom are mentioned by name in the last video).

I never thought I'd have one of these, let alone have one with anywhere near this many legitimate parts.
