    I respectfully decline altercation. Neither my ceiling high enough, or floor thick enough. Or budget for endmills. And no bridge crane, WAG is 200 ton and 60' under rail. My favorite scale reference, isn't the 2 machinists, it's the caged ascent ladder, f'n straight up! Rungs are probably 10 to 11" on center, inclined ladders are 12" IIRC.
    I count 39 or so. Know why?
    So they can replace bulbs in the aircraft warning lights. Or a sadistic HR department locates the time clock up there.
    Come to think of it, haven't a wrench for the 6" clamp studs.

    I worked my keester off all day. I'll call tomorrow if I can lift the phone.

    Who's going to say it first? Epic, beautiful, a treasure in iron, recognized world-wide.
    Just slide rules, long hand arithmetic, sketches, blueprints, surveying equipment, and assorted manual measuring tools. And I confidently guarantee bulk of initial materials were prepared offsite.
    The Golden Gate Bridge is a fixed six-lane roadway, is 1.7 miles long (main span is 4,200 feet long), and carries about 112,000 vehicles per day. Who knows how many since opening.
    I've driven and ridden over it many times and sailed underneath 4 times. BTW, aircraft carriers must await low tide. . .
