    Hi Greg, thanks for the kind complements. The Ace Bandages help retain the heat for my dew heaters. While at a remote location power is very limited. By wrapping the dew heaters, the ace bandages act as blankets, thus I don’t need as much power to prevent dew. Dew heaters suck up lots of power when you’re running on a battery, so any extra power I can gain is a bonus!

    Thanks David! I had lots of fun using the time lapse. That should be a contest, guess what each frame represents. It goes pretty fast! If you have a question about any of the steps I’ll try to answer them…Just give me a time stamp of the video and I’ll try to explain it.
