Default Re: Mill/Lathe

Lol... Reminds me of when I was working on military aircraft.. order a tiny gasket or nut and it's in a 12"x12" box, inside that box is a ton of foam then another 6"x6" box, inside... yup... more foam... Then inside that box a 2x2" box... then What?!!?? no foam??? ... they substituted the foam for that brown wrapping paper, wrapped up in the paper is a small plastic bag with... you guessed it... 1 1/4" nut with 10/32 threads... no silver plating, no hi temp coating, just a plain old gold irridate coated nut.... Just imagine if ya had to order 100 of them to get an engine assembled...
