    Toe strap webbing -- melt / heat bonding?

    You don’t need a mechanical degree to operate a needle and thread the other option would to be heat a couple holes and then install a two piece grommet the even simpleler option, which would make replacing and adjustment much easier would be to use nylon webbing adjusters. When the strapping is doubled back in itself inside the ladder adjuster the friction between the webbing while zigzagging throught he fitting is enough to keep it all together and keep it from slipping. Plastic. metal.

    PB. I’ve been following your journey, and youve def been through the wringer. By no means am I throwing caution to wind. I’m easing back into activity. Today has been, by far, the easiest day. So maybe for me I’ve peaked. Hope so. By time still confined to quarters until June 1. Provided I check all the boxes. in regards to symptoms, yeah it seems they keep adding to them. Nausea lack of appetite wasn’t even a symptom last week, and now it is a “less common” symptom. Given the high pollen counts and my allergies I just attributed it to allergy. So just based in this and what seems like ever changeing symptoms, it’s easy understand how people could. Be walking around spreading this while not having symptoms. I feel guilty for putting people at risk last week, friends, coworkers, my wife, my daughter..

    Vienna va. All my boats are dry and safe on the hard in my basement bravo bravo, one of the goals is to maintain zero fever temps with out drugs for 72 hours. It’s one of the few check boxes we’ve gotta check to be allowed to rejoin society. I’m scheduled to be out of work all next week as well so I’m going to start easing off the Tylenol . I started on Friday evening by I’ve been taking two 500mg tab every 8 hours. Yesterday I went down to one tab every 8hours. Today none. So far so good ive got a 32 ounce yeti bottle that I’ve been sucking down a couple times a day with water or tea. No booze...

    Thanks, Yeah, nice neighbors and in laws all offering help if we need it We are pretty well stocked up with food and necessities, I could stand to skip a few meals anyway... And I have enough odds and end to do in the shop So I don’t drive the wife crazy. our kid is staying isolated from us and we have a pretty good schedule in place to keep her safe and allow her first access to all the food plates, ect before the infected move in for chow. She s got two rooms and a bathroom to play with and she’s started taking some online summer classes, so we’ll be lucky if we see her more than once a day im going to try the next few days with no Tylenol or Motrin. See how the temps are going. But other than my peak. I’ve been a couple degrees below 98.6. for those that care I’m 47, 230lbs 5 10 And I was emergency essential at the unviserty and had been at work 5 days a weekup since the stuff hit the fan, until last Friday.

    Well I popped positive this morning, two days after my wife Talking with the dr and our covid expert at work, we feel that I’ve been symptomatic Since 5/13. I did not have an covid symptoms until late Friday early Saturday when I kicked over a fever of 102.7. Wed, Thursday and early Friday I was tired, not 100%, queasy stomach, not hungry. Not exactly covid symptoms but my body was telling me something wasn’t right. I do have allergies and I was popping bandryl and Flonase, and pollen counts were up. sweats, chills and fevers, and general lethargy, with the occasional cough have been me and mrs only symptoms. definilty got it easier than PB today I spent a few hours in the shop working on my star 45, will likely spend a few more hours after lunch. Actually it’s the first day I felt like doing more than laying on the couch

    Good luck pb. My wife started showing symptoms a few days ago, fever, chills, dry cough. Fever was easily controlled with Tylenol, So she got tested for flu and cv today. Flu tested negative. I’ve been non symptomatic, accept for a colder than normal temp by a couple degrees and the occasional body ache.... we have both been working , she from home and me at school. Now we wait for a few days

    Fumduck Athletes Police in South Florida are trying to find New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar after multiple witnesses accused them of an armed robbery at a party, authorities said Thursday. Miramar police issued arrest warrants for both men Thursday on four counts each of armed robbery with a firearm. Baker faces an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. The residential community is located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Baker, 22, and Dunbar, 27, were attending a cookout at a Miramar home Wednesday night when a fight broke out, and Baker pulled out a handgun, the warrant said. Baker, Dunbar and two other men began robbing other people at the party of thousands of dollars in cash, watches and other valuables, witnesses told investigators.

    The F1 2020 thread

    Tabloids get it right sometimes Toto Wolff says the Silver Arrows outfit is committed to keeping its driver line-up intact for 2021 but must also take into consideration Sebastian Vettel's availability. Vettel's departure from Ferrari at the end of the season has led to a whirlwind of speculation about who might fill the German driver's seat at the Scuderia but also about Vettel's future. Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas have yet to agree terms with Mercedes for 2021 and beyond, and both drivers could theoretically be of interest to Ferrari Wolff reiterated his stance on his team's line-up, insisting stability remains Mercedes' priority. But the Austrian also said the Vettel's exit from Ferrari is not an insignificant event for the Brackley squad. "Sebastian is a great driver, a major personality and an asset to any Formula 1 team," Wolff said. "When looking to the future, our first loyalty lies with the current Mercedes drivers. "But naturally we must take this development into consideration."
