Building a Wall

Just some questions to the wall builders posting here as I will be in the same boat as ianrodders and building a wall in the future. -Did you think it necessary to get local engineering design? -Did you place piles along the wall to avoid settling and cracking or just a reinforced concrete beam and ...

Woman Friend Skips Out with Bail Money

Yes a typical Richard Cranium.
Having an engineering degree doesn't always relate to a street smart IQ.

Bad luck for his mate who thought he was being bailed with the money.

USAF in town?

I reckon their sending a very subtle message to all countries that border Thailand that the USA are still around and will be showing off some of their new toys. Especially to those Govt's doing deals with China, for power plants and dams and what ever other resources the chinese want. Would be inter...

24" heavy wall pipe???

Since we have commenced the spelling attack on the "urban legend" one must venture back only another 3 words to find that there is another mistake. I did not go back further than 3 words. I wish my car was purched with money then perhaps it may have been far less expensive, but then again not knowin...

I was put into the figure 8 splint and it took a full 8 weeks to heal and back to work. A lot of pain and discomfort for about 3 weeks. Never remember the bone mo...

24" heavy wall pipe???

We drive heavy wall 26" by 12meter long pipe for our piles on site, just a suggestion check the larger building sites or heavy excavation yards, if any, around town as they may use this pipe for their piles and have some offcuts. It will most likey be schedule 80 wall thickness but depending on what...

Udorn and the Vietnam War

Funny how there are different names for wars depending on which side you were on. Westerners call it the Vietnam war and the Vietnamese call it the American war. I wonder if the Japs and Germans had another name for the 2nd world war? It is only recently that the museum name in Ho Chi Minh City was ...

SAFE-T-CUT Udon

Bluejets is correct. You should have a 30ma trip as this is deemed to be the maximum current the body and heart can accept without death. Not that you would want to test that personally. Trip time should be 20ms or 30ms which is the maximum amount of time that if the body should be exposed to the cu...
