Re: re: my jet wunt light

Ha ha. Goin' aboot in a boot? I figure we can't all go ice fishing with dynamite. I was telling the story of Rossco and his WIG to my Canadian friend and employee, and it dawned on me that while Canucks and Aussies are quite similar, a Canadian would have at least a twelver in him before it dawned ...

re: Bill's Tip o' the Day

I'm actually surprised how cheap a pipe stretcher (tail pipe expander) is. I picked one up at the local Princess Auto (like Pep Boys in the States) for $14.99.

Makes a nice quick way of flaring pipe. :)

Anyone want the pdf of the catalog?

The authors also reported that the thickness of Einstein's cerebral cortex (area 9) was thinner than that of five control brains. However, the DENSITY of neurons in Einstein's brain was g...

See. This is what you get when you do it wrong.

Now. Why does this remind me of some of the topics of discussion on mixing agent "A" with reactant "B" on pulse-jets.com....and wondering what the outcome will be. (this is not meant as a lecture. More of a "just because you can. Doesn't mean you should....warning, visually shocking. No bones, guts,...

re: skyboard (Needs a Pulse Jet

Why would you jump out of a perferctly good plane, strapped to a deck umbrella, hoping you don't make too big a hole when you hit?

It's a very good idea. And. I'm disappointed that so many people have read this post. Yet, have neglected to take the two minutes it would take to add a comment.

Interesting. 84 people have viewed this. And not one comment. Heck--that just puts you in the same pew as me. Check-out the replies (zero!) to my "Bill's Tip o' the Day" post, just below this one.

A "How to Bend Tubing and Pipe by Hand" web site

Nice site that if you follow it around also shows a tubing coping and a tube deflection calculator.


Bon chance..

So much for rockets :D
