Some newsreaders actively discourage cross-posting -- especially
Mine does so -- asking when I start a followup whether I want to
post to the current newsgroup (rec.crafts.metalworking in my case) or to
"all". If I select "all" -- I again get nagged at when the followup is
complete and I want to post it.
I suspect that he is either using a newsreader which does not
allow overriding the no-cross-posting feature, or he does not know how
to override it.
I got to this too late to post guesses -- I actually totally
skipped yesterday -- too busy reading a good book. :-)
That's silly. If there's a topic that's of interest, crossposting is
recommended over multi-posting:
and so on.
Hope This Helps!
Rich, I had to add two groups to crosspost this because your message
said followup-to rec.metalworking.
4.1.5 tells how to delete the followup line from a header. If you
deleted it and it came back, 5.1.6 on this page tells how to go to group
Hope this Helps!
Thanks! Does this mean I got one right this week? ;-D
(I mean, "Good guess" doesn't necessarily mean, "RIGHT!", like on
"Family Feud," they're always saying "Good Answer!" but bzzzzt!) ;-)
2259: In the US, alcohol content of liquor must be within 0.15% of what
the label says. If one of the floats is set for the upper limit and the
other for the lower limit, then if one sinks and one floats, the liquor
passes the test. Well, that's my guess...
Why would a small mold have 3/4" holes in the top and bottom?
If I had a couple of pieces of 1/2" or 5/8" copper tubing with oval
fittings, this looks like a dandy clamp for quick connects and
disconnects. The springs would keep pressure on a gasket. The oval
plate could be used when you wanted to stop the flow.
I haven't figured out where one might find copper tubing with oval fittings.
I like the mold idea but someone else had suggested it's for connecting two
rods and I like that idea too. There is some type of residue inside of it
so that's one reason I like the mold theory, also, the plate could be placed
at the bottom covering the hole, something was poured into the mold from the
top, after it dried you could push a rod into the hole against the plate to
drive it out. Hard to say exactly what they were making, I'm not saying
this is correct, just a possible answer.
Seems like another good use for it, but I think it's will be difficult to
prove either of these theories and get a definitive answer. The owner of it
found it at a car boot sale, I didn't ask but I'm guessing it was in
Now that I see the flat bottom of the tub, I like the idea that it's a
mold. I wonder why a mold needed springs. Were they to slowly squeeze
out the excess of something molded cold? For something that expanded as
I wonder what molded object would be like a tiny bread loaf, 1" wide and
With the big hole in the top, I wonder if something was molded around
the base of a rod.
