Turbo Keychains

They are cast metal and have spinning compressor wheels. If you blow air through them they spool up pretty good, however I have already blown one at 90psi sustained for several runs....

Are you sure that isn't a supercharger? Do you have any compressor maps?

Re: Turbo Keychains $12.50 shipped in the USA

I bought one of these and the second pass with 150psi of compressed air it flew apart. Put it back together only to have it fall apart in my pocket.

It is a pretty cool key chain though, and kinda funny.

Good call! I'd probably buy another one if they were only $10 or less, but that extra 2.50 just wrecks it for me
