    Ah yes, machining. Looks a lot like some pieces of our bridge for the AISC competition our school enters, although our pieces are a lot smaller. They're still heavy though, that pieces has got to weigh a ton.

    screw the machine shop! I could make those- send me some dimensions and some cash I'll make those suckers. I have too much time to be on the computer I'd rather be in the garage. That's beefy as hell though, I think I'll make one too. Where'd you get the steel though?
