BASCOM-TURNER INSTRUMENTSSEMITyrtTHE SenVolume 12, Issue 1January, 2008A Qu arter C en tury of excell enc eInside this issue:Timeline2Product Focus3Comfort Corner4The 19th Hole5What is It?6This year marks Bascom-Turner’s twenty fifth year at our current R&D and production facility in Norwood, Massachusetts. While we have been manufacturing instruments for industry since 1980, building a new facility in 1983 was abold step for us at the time.Until then, we had been housed in three unconnected buildings in nearby Newton, Massachusetts. I look back attimes when in the dead of winter I had to attend a meeting at 55 Chapel Street and did not look forward to the walkfrom my building at 111 Chapel. And, as tradition had it, if you were making the pilgrimage to “55” you had to carrythe interoffice mail and make a stop at our 67 Chapel Street location to see what needed to be picked up or deliveredthere as well.I do not miss those days.In this issue, we look back over the past 25 years and show that while the years have come and gone, our commitment to providing the best instruments and service to our customers has remained consistent.Our product focus is on The Gas-Explorer series, our latest line of multifunctional detectors. The Explorer combinesnew dual catalytic sensors developed by Bascom-Turner with exciting new firmware to give you an accurate, sensitiveand fast detector for all your service needs.The 19th Hole touches on how the game of golf has weathered the past quarter century, and Comfort Corner bringsyou back with an age-old favorite dessert recipe.Enjoy,George S. ChampeyEditor-in ChiefINSTRUMENTS FOR INDUSTRY SINCE 1980

VOLUME 12, ISSUE 1PRODUCT FOCUSPAGE 3Introducingthe gas-explorerTmTHE GAS-EXPLORERTM SERIES:ACCURATE, SMART, AFFORDABLEThe Gas-ExplorerTM combines new dual catalytic methane sensors developed by Bascom-Turner with exciting new firmware to give you anaccurate, sensitive and fast detector for all your service needs.Large, back-lit LCDOur proprietary, dual catalytic methane sensors give calibrated measurements down to 20 PPM (0.002 vol % or 0.04% LEL.) The sensorscompensate for temperature and humidity and can be used for areasurveys as well as leak checking.These sensors are combined with new firmware to provide automatic,self-maintaining data-logging and generate management reports. TheExplorer stores up to 24 calibrations and several months’ worth oftime-stamped readings data. A USB port makes downloading easy.Using Bascom-Turner’s DATA-LINKTM software, a broad suite of reportscan be easily generated, including Readings Reports, Exposure Reports, Bar-Hole Reports, Calibration Reports, Sensor Sensitivity Historyby Unit ID, and a host of others.Tough, lightweight packageBeyond reporting, The Gas-ExplorerTM includes many features to makethe job easier. For quick overhead work, peak gas readings are automatically stored and displayed. For consistent bar-holing, sustainedreadings are taken at the end of a fixed time and displayed along withpeak readings. For reliable flue gas testing, air-free CO measurementscan be pre-programmed. For all applications, intuitive three buttonoperation makes user-training quick and simple, and an on-board electronic help manual provides fast answers in the field.Of course, the Gas-ExplorerTM has all the features you’ve come to expect from Bascom-Turner Instruments: a high performance pump, highpower efficiency for long battery life, and docking calibration. Newamenities include a large, back-lit LCD display, a “mute” button, and alightweight, tough, ergonomic package. And, in keeping with all ourproducts, the Explorer is a superior gas detector at an affordable price.Docking, calibration and datatransfer

PAGE 4Comfort cornerTHE SENTRY TIMESIn our part of the country, you can always count on a few things:Nobody can predict the weather here. Not 25 years ago. . . . Not now.We will always say “chowda” instead of chowder.Rotaries are a way of life.And apples here in the northeast were made for this recipe. Reprinted with thanks to Elizabeth Makrides.Apple Crisp3/4 cup all-purpose flour1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar1/2 tsp salt1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)3 pounds apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice1/2 tsp ground cinnamonPreheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Cutbutter into flour, using a pastry blender or two knives, until mixture is the texture of coarse meal. Add oats, and useyour hands to toss and squeeze mixture until large, moist clumps form. Note: using your hands is crucial, since theclumps help the topping stay together above the apples and keep it from getting soggy. Transfer to freezer to chillwhile you prepare apples.In another large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Transfer toa shallow 2-quart baking dish (11x7 or 9x13 are both fine), and sprinkle with topping. Bake until golden and bubbling, 50 to 60 minutes. [Be sure to check on your crisp, as cook time may be less depending on your baking dish andoven.] Let cool 10 minutes before serving.Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!“ vegetables are a must on a diet.I suggest carrot cake, zucchini breadand pumpkin pie.”- anonymous

VOLUME 12, ISSUE 1The 19th holePAGE 5ByBrian TerryHere we are again at the 19th hole. This year Bascom-Turner is celebrating our 25th anniversary, so I thought itwould be fitting to take a look at what golf technology had to offer 25 years ago. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have taken up the wonderful game of golf in recent years and many have no idea how things were back in “TheGood Old Days.”Since everyone likes to focus on hitting the long ball, lets start with the Driver. Back in the early eighties, mostwoods were actually made of wood! Mostly persimmon and a few made of laminated maple. Around this time, astart-up golf company decided to try making a pro quality metal wood. Metal woods had been used at drivingranges, but mostly because they didn’t wear out as quickly. Of course, the jokes begin to fly about using “range club”in competition, but this little company really thought they had a good idea. They introduced a 165cc steel headed /steel shafted driver called the Pittsburgh Persimmon. That company was Taylor Made! Today we have drivers withhead sizes approaching 500cc with several companies in heated competition.The next club people seem to put the most money into is their putter. In the early eighties, most putters weresimple blades. One of the most popular was the Wilson 8802. It was heavy and you had to contact the ball deadcenter or you suffered greatly. However, a golfing engineer in Scottsdale, AZ named Karsten Solheim had an ideaabout how to make putters easier to hit. He figured that if he could move weight away from the clubhead’s centerof-gravity, it would make the putter more stable on off-center contact. The concept is called “perimeter weighting”and he named the putter the Ping Anser because it was the answer to his dream. Today we have hundreds of different putter designs, but all of them still keep Solheim’s idea in mind, perimeter weighting.Ping continued with the perimeter weighting idea in the area of irons. They were the first to bring to marketcavity back irons. Prior to that, all irons were blades that were hard to hit. Karsten’s Ping irons were the beginning ofmaking golf fun for those who don’t have enough time to practice like the pros. Today, you are hard pressed to findblade irons and even the pros have mostly given them up.Lastly, comes the golf ball. In the eighties, pro quality balls had one thing in common, they all had coversmade of Balata, which is derived from the sap of an east Asian tree and quite often difficult to attain. The Balata coverof a golf ball is naturally brown and the balls had to be painted white. After a few holes, the paint would begin towear off and the balls were usually replaced. They were also prone to cut easily and thereby only played by betterplayers. Now, there are several synthetic cover materials that are used to make golf balls that give the feel and performance of the old balata cover but are far tougher. They also mix the white color into the plastic so that they staywhite longer.Many things in golf have changed over the last 25 years. Clubheads, shafts, and all other types of equipmenthave been improved to help golfers enjoy the game more. However, at the pro level, one thing really hasn’t changedall that much . . . scoring. Al Geiberger shot the first 59 in professional golf in 1977 and only a few others have doneit since. You see, even with all those equipment improvements, we still have to swing the club. That means practice,practice, practice.Fairways and Greens
