    I used to think that until I worked 6 years at a steel yard/metal fab shop and then 2 more years doing masonry restoration on historical buildings.. I wish I would have listings more in my math classes and not have just been worried about getting a 70

    That's why I went through the motions. My mistake is exactly why I write it all down for work. I could be a professional at stupid math errors.:(

    I assume that's directed at me?

    All I have to do is convert pounds to kilograms, and adjust dosing for body weight. Pretty much multiply/divide all day long.

    Rarely I've used the pythagorean theorum, but nothing too brain intensive.

    Thank you! Have been slacking so not done yet.. Building a ar right now also and kinda wrapped up in that and it's been hot outside.. Lol

    Things I was not planning to do but I am now.. Welding clips all down the rail to weave para cord to hold on canvas, going to find some sort of Hd felt or rubber to help protect the composite rails when installing/removing on my own.. More pictures when I get off my lazy ass and go outside to work on it sometime soon..
