Here's an example.


104266

In the 1940's these were cut on a band saw and the material was sub standard, as well as the adhesives.

The FAA is happy with that. I'm not. None of us are. I'll...

It's not just plumbers.

Elevator operators? Same thing.
Sprinkler fitters? Same thing.
steam fitters? Same thing.

Carpenters should be licensed and restricted.

Sorry, I don't do drugs.
