    Cool Iowa State Sign

    My neighbor is an HVAC repairman. He made me a cool Iowa State sign out of refrigeration tubing and hooked it up to a chiller unit. When it is turned on the copper lines sweat and build up ice. I have before and after pictures below. Just thought I would share it as I thought it was pretty cool. Our next project is to build some type of drip tray to catch the ice when the machine is turned off. Once we get that done we are going to try to wrap Christmas lights around the copper and let the ice build over them.

    Definitely "cool".


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    That is really cool, it would look sweet with lights in it. Post a picture of it when you get the lights installed

    Re: Cool Iowa State Sign

    you should dump a little red and yellow food coloring on it once you turn it on.


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....
