I saw that article as well. I am waiting for replies from a few craigslist ads with these. My plan is to use a paintball CO2 tank to pressurize the extinguisher. I really like the idea.

I have two spare 2.5 gallon SS extinguishers in Mitchell ON. If anyone feels like bringing me a six or something to sample (not the stuff reserved for the BMC crowd or rowdy cousins) you can walk away with one.

Oh yeah the label says "Use water only" and pressurize to 100PSI.

I have 2 of these. I saw them at a flea market and thought the same as above. Nice to see it works.

Going to have to see if I can find any of these... Might have to talk with some of the firemen at the local station to see if they know where I could locate some... If we have a street party this year, I'll have to use one to serve up some cold home brew...

you should be able to get them cheap.. they have a maximum service life. we sell and service fire extinguishers, and we were just getting rid of old ones. i wish i would thought about another use for them. i would sell them to you guys on here for scrap price plus shipping. if i get more i'll let everyone know.
