Re: Milling a helix

Re: Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Water Putty!
Wow, I wonder if it can take the heat ? ZA-8 I think requires 750 degrees.

Or could the water be baked out of it before trying it?

Aluminum molds for ZA-8 casting?

Would it be possible do you think to use aluminum for a mold to cast ZA-8?

Bugfix outage today (Today, Sunday, 8 or 8:30 central)

[It is Done!
Multiple Pictures should be fixed]

I will be making a patch to attempt to fix the multiple picture upload issue.
This will happen about 8:00 or 8:30 am central.
The system will have to be rebooted. I suspect it won't take more than a few minutes.

Re: In search of Precision...

I turns out that indexes for 3 character searches requires more than a configuration change for the phpbb software.
We can do 4 character searches, but with 3, for now, we need to rely on google.com.
