    Looks like the rivets were holding up the bridge, not the steel

    The thirty-six men needed to fly and service a B-17E, 1942. No way to account those who built plane, engines, weaponry, wheeled equipment, uniforms, fuel, concrete...(and all the tiers below producing beforehand!)...

    It matters not; war material or consumer goods, this is how a real economy prospers.
    Not cubicle gophers of a service model economy.

    Nah, it's set up the way MOST bandsaws are...I did have a left hander and it was a pain in the backside? I reckon that's a 30", just like the Crescent I learned on...I bought the left hander, because it was a 28", but ended up selling it...now I'm waiting on myself to build Mathias Wandel's 18"...best light a fire under my arse...Cheers
