Y6 Day 288, Gas sniffer

Y6 Day 288, Gas sniffer
October 2015 Scavenger Challenge 9. Search out scientific instruments and apparatus. Hint: you might want to visit your doctor or dentist's office. No home thermometers allowed, but "home testing" kits such as those used by diabetics are permissible.

Gas leaks can be pesky things. Finding them using a cigarette lighter works; but is highly UN-recommended. Much safer to use a squirty bottle with a mixture of water and washing up liquid. Sometimes this isn't practical though; so having a professional sniffer comes in handy.
In the note pic Murray is trying to find the source of the acetylene leak. Turns out the valve wasn't turned off tightly enough

Handy gadget to have. Yeah, finding the leak with a lit match would not be the smartest way to go about it.

I have a gas alarm on the step at the door going out, if the neighbour cranks his car up too much in the morning it set my alarm off

That would be an interesting gadget to see :-}
