    It occurred to me that occupational tombstones would make a good category for another work-crew-photos-like thread. But, unsurprisingly, someone's already on top of that...

    Anyone notice the 1" mic is near fully open, but only reads .151? And the barrel is out of sync with the thimble, looking close to .176 too.
