Its got stickers and all sorts of whatnot and inside is this chick belted into a 5 point harness. This thing has a full cage, stripped dash with all the latest geewhiz gauges and techno stuff plus this big assed tank of nitrous bolted to the cage and two big buttons in the steering wheel....

A Ford Probe..not a car Id ever have considered to be particularly sporty..shrug..(so what do I know?) Looked like a NASCAR ride with all the bells and whistles.

Glenn - that is near the norm! (maybe not the lead pouring, but ... ;-) )

I had a field trip of a 'rich' persons shop area - He has a 150 ton overhead gantry - Pulling up the turret of a Tank. Forget which one - I think Russian. One chunk of steel. He has three large - I'd say 125,000 foot each shops that are display rooms full of tanks and a Scud missile system set from WW II to today - just not our state of the art Tank.

I took hundreds of pictures - far to many to think about. He has the worlds largest private collection. (His Father or Grandfather - can't recall - was one of the three contractors to Bolder Dam.)

I think that is a bit eccentric myself! :-)

I have a bunch of peices about 2 x 7 x 0.1 inches to clean up. Am sort of planning on using H Cl available from the hardware store type as Muratic. Does anyone know what concentration it is and what dilution would be appropiate? I know all about "add acid to water as a good boy aughtter" :-) Thanks. ...lew...

Not an issue with muriatic acid. You're thinking of sulfuric.

Central CA? He had an issue importing the Scud system (seems to me there were 2), good to hear that's behind him.

In his shop 'turret lathe' brings on a whole new meaning. :o

You can use it full strength, but watch it as it will work fast when fresh. Leaving the metal in too long will just result in loss of good metal. 2:1 dilution will make it a less vigorous in reaction if you are uncomfortable with it. Be sure to dip you metal in a baking soda solution after descaling to neutralize residual acid. Then dry and oil immediately to prevent rust.

Okay, so I'm late, I missed the stafff meeting but " Sailor" wrote back Sun, 22 Aug 2004 16:55:31 GMT on rec.crafts.metalworking , and I'm just now getting caught up:

Spending money on women in bars not your spouse/SO is "wrong". Especially if she finds out.

I am but an egg. But I have read what sounded like good advice on this. Don;t use alkaline to neutralise, as you have just made salt in intimate contact with the raw steel. Wash very thoroughly with water.

And the minimal hydrogen created by dissolving the metal thus exposed causes embrittlement too. BFD. You aren't going to notice it unless the FAA comes by.

And actually, baking soda is a buffer, tending towards basic of course.
