    You never know these days, I see both young and old "ladies" tattooed. It all depend on what they identify as!

    Plaster on plate glass?

    I wonder what the purpose of spreading plaster on plate glass is?
    Could it be for protection during shipping?

    It is part of the manufacturing process.

    Hemmjo, thanks for that link. Fascinating stuff, I've just come up for air after an hour down the glass manufacturing rabbit hole...Pilks Australia is still a large player here, as is Viridian. I had the fun of supplying low Fe glass shelves for a dining room china cabinet, 3000 wide x 2100 high in 2008, for a fussy customer who did not like the green edge of regular float. It was 50% more expensive, but in the end, I decided to always use it, when behind glass doors. Thanks for your contributions here.
    Jim

    re *2420
    I've seen a sparse few tattooed ladies; though tattooed women abound.

    Meanwhile, Yes, that is one of the best quotes ever, getting clearer every day.
    I'm going to mount a big iron clapper alarm, and tempting black and white decoy wire running to the electromagnet. When a perp snips that, a poster of that quote drops in front of said perp. He/ she/ it will have time to read it before proceeding as neer-do-well.
    Not confrontational, I just worked WAY too hard getting this far.
    Sincerely,

    Jon's poster finds are going to fill every available square inch of my shop entry; a modest history lesson centered on manufacturing history. It's been my quest to alert washed minds of what all that effort requires, and inestimable benefit to our economy.
    Spent whole morning with an expert in dynamic engine balancing. he worked on a LS crank for Baja with serious amount of Mallory Metal in the throws. Having built scores of the 383-400 conversions, all was fine until knock-off importations started. So poorly done, mains and crankpins require reground .010/.010 to correct RMS finish, regularity in positioning, and correcting the corners of throws! Why? They hit piston skirts....which required massaging too.
    Thank you, lobbyists along with certain manufacturing and retail associations
