There should be no gender inequality in *lots* of things, and gun safety is definitely high on that list.

I just ran across this image on the web...Identified as the control room for the German u-boat, UB110, 1918.

I came across this pic in Ello where a fellow was keeping a photo-record
of his progress in replacing a leaking pond-liner.

Moving the circulating pump all by himself was an early problem due to weight and location.
So look at all the places where he improvised his tools... a man of ingenuity.

I lightened the pic to show details that were hidden in the shadows

You should have seen me getting one of these four ft diameter beauties out of the back of my van and into a hole I'd dug, without fucking up my well casing, by myself. :nuts:

That actually would have been interesting to see.

Yeah, I couldn't find one around here so my buddy down near Conowingo, PA, got it and had it hanging from a chain fall when I got there (he's a rigger). We still had trouble getting in the van, unlike dropping it on a pickup.

At home I jerry rigged a tripod over the hole with some two inch schedule 80 pipe, but it still had to slide out of the van. Every time I tried, the whole works would start to lean in a different direction. By the time I was done, I had about 150 feet of 3/4" rope tied off from the tripod to three different trees and the back steps railing.

All this at about two in the morning with floodlights clamped to stepladders, and the state Police cruising by real slow every half hour. It's a wonder I didn't kill myself. But I was only 40 and stupidly confident. :smack:

Those tubs aren't lookin' too hot.

Gravdigr 10-05-2015 04:59 PM

I don't think those are the celebrity hottubs.

The perfect home for glatt, his family, his extended family, and his scout troop in the garage or tenting on the lawn.
After all, Chevy Chase is an acceptable address. :haha:
