    7014 vs 7018 on the farm

    Cyanotic would be more appropriate.

      Shoot, I share my little mystery and all I get is abuse! I guess I'll keep my Bigfoot sighting and the alien abduction story to myself . . .

      Couldn't find a suitable empty glass jar and lid today or I'd have tried the experiment. (But maybe now I won't share that either . . . I'll tell 'em where to put their bags of dessicant, grumble, grumble!!).

          I think we should get back to talking about stuff blowing up.

            Sure. Take your O/A torch set to an outboard hydroplane race, and have somebody give you a cracked 2-stroke expansion chamber to weld up, one that's been on an engine running in a methanol class for a good while, and has a substantial coating of castor oil and other gunk all over the insides . . . when the gunk vaporizes and ignites, well, it can get immediate attention all over the pits.

            What was this thread about?

                What _is_ the statute of limitations on welding related blow-up stories?

                At one airport we were seeing how far we could lob potatoes. This was somewhere in 1980 or so. If course, as a rocket scientist drop-out I knew that acetylene and oxygen have a rather high specific impulse.

                The potatoes went pretty far, but remained sub-sonic.
