Moh, a demo man is someone who pulls everything down so that the steeplejacks and boilermakers can make money constructing them again!   Wink

  A MILLION PAGE VIEWS----by next March will be a brilliant achievement!

Let us all keep up the good work. Most gratifying---and something to look forward to.

Read it again more carefully, not a million yet but a good chance it will be by the 7th anniversary of the site next March.

Young Tom, you should have been looking for steeplejerk. We all know that jacks can't spell!

Good man Mervyn, I watched him drop Dee. A very tidy job, no excitement at all. There are some pics in the early SC.

Grock, make sure you look at the two earlier sections. Do a search in 'Forum search' for steeplejack on subject line and you'll find the others.
