Other than the first page (which tell us what we need to know about
it for knife work:) the trouble shooting/suggestions-list was my
favorite. :) The exaggerated diagrams of the cut-shapes was really
cool too, reminded me of AO cutting torch "problems" which shouldn't
have been a suprise I guess. ;)
Of course the pressure numbers and other operating and mechanical
facts are what will stay with a guy the longest I suppose?
Several years ago at about 3am there was a truck mounted water
pressure cleaner cleaning the cement sidewalks at a grocery store.
I put in my ear plugs and went over and "talked" to the "foreman".
He claimed 55,000psi. :) Looked like some sort of surplus military
equipment, bought and mounted on an old truck and all painted up
with rattle-ball spray-can paint.
I bet the neighbors made a point of never letting that rig clean
anything in their neighborhood again! I never saw it again and have
never seen evidence of it ever cleaning anything again either.
Both of us wearing ear plugs and screaming directly into each others
ears, we could hardly talk over the noise of that thing. Without
ear plugs, it would have been impossible!
