re: Instrument Tech and Plant Baws - AndyCBR
[quote]Work 70 hours a week 30 weeks a year. Mainly because you will be looking for work the rest of the time. Highly unstable line of work always worrying if your job will be there or when you will be replaced. [/quote] Not from what I have seen in my time in the industry. I think it depends...

re: Instrument Tech and Plant Baws - AndyCBR
Piping Design baw. From what I know now and what college costs now I would seriously look at this trade if you can run a Cad system and visualize in 3D. Field visits once a week at best (more like once every 2 weeks) and air-conditioned Cad work the rest of the week. Great money degreed or no...

re: Best advice you wise men of the OT would give a man 24-26 yrs old? - AndyCBR
In no particular order off the top of my head. 1) Find something you like to do. Going to a job you don't like is no fun. If you do something you hate, eventually you'll hate yourself for doing it. 2) Max out whatever retirement savings vehicle you choose immediately. Explore post tax s...

[quote]LSU is setting the bar with Mike.[/quote] Put that damn tiger in the cage and roll through Death Valley. Glad I grew up in a time when this simple act was not viewed as some type of mistreatment of a glorified house pet. The piss poor football, piped in music, paid parking, and outra...

[quote]All the Mitsubishi designed engines had the water pump driven by the timing belt. So off the water pump seized, your engine likely blew. [/quote] Pretty common configuration (every Honda I've ever worked on is the same). I wouldn't call the Hondas "driven" by the water pump but it's all...

re: Would you support ID checks at state borders to catch illegals? - AndyCBR
That has the potential to become a cluster of epic proportions. The free flow of goods and services between state lines is one of the things that makes our country work well. "Finding" illegals is not the problem with the current system. It's letting them go afterwards without deportation that ...

[quote] All my AR's have M16 bolt carriers. They are sold on every gun site.[/quote] I stand corrected, perhaps it's the fire control group or lower parts kits that are class 3 items. Regardless, conversion to full auto is not a big challenge to someone willing to commit a felony in doing so....

re: Mass shooting on Vegas Strip discussion - AndyCBR
I'll jump in here. Regardless of what this guy had up there the conversion to full auto is not terribly challenging. A template to drill some holes and a lightning link and you are set as long as you can get a hold of an M16 bolt and carrier group. The M16 internals are probably the only thing ...
