There is only one way to find out whether that section will be filled with useless crap or interesting information.


I can only moderate sections, not make them. :(

It would make a place for things such as peoples fridge compressors, and home made pumps, as well as fuel meters and stuff, that doesn't technically go in the cannon showcase, but also isn't just a discussion, as they have something to showcase.

Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

I like it, I don't have the money to build a cannon often enough, but I improvise all kinds of things to go with it... I would post in that section if it were to ever go online... even though these things would usually end up going in the showcase for whatever type of gun they were made to work with...

Theories and accessories imo. Though a new section would be good to spam post in.

Lol we have a similar device to that at the place I currently have an internship at, except it performs butt welds on pipes, however turn the amperage up too high and I'm sure it would cut some of the pipes... Oh and ours cost $50K for the power source and controller + 11K for the welder head lol, but yea it's all part of the game in the industry, if that tool is necessary, or can speed up production at all it's cost can be negligible in the long run.

And since this is an on-going off-topic thread - What would be the best approach for a mechanical engineering student in college to get involved in your "area of work" D_Hall?

Surest way?

Do a tour in Iraq. We *LOVE* people with combat experience (really, we do).

Failing that? usajobs.gov, just like anybody else.

Perhaps an estimation on when we could expect that?


Very hard to tell.

We'll make a lot of progress one week and then we're overtaken by events and get pulled off on more important projects. Thus, we make zero progress for a month or two. Then we make a lot of progress....

I'm going to guess late fall or early winter.

It worked for me (military but not iraq) to get training. I came out of high school during the depression in the '70's. Looking in the paper showed some openings that required schooling and experience. Just schooling would have left me short of the pre requisites. The Navy had an Advanced Electronics program. With my scores, I could get a guaranteed field. I got my schooling and experience an NO student loan to pay off. Also have never been out of work. Lots of employers will take military training in place of a college degree. Any other recognized certification is a bonus. I have my Journeyman ISCET certification.
