Re: Leveling blocks

nat, perhaps you could clarify your thoughts as to why the "little compressor" that Lorna speaks of won't work. If you'll include remarks including CFM's, static pressure and valving for example, your comments will help folks understand how it is you know all about pneumatics (and probably hydrolics) and why the little compressor won't work etc.

I think he may have been banned. I missed his recent posts.

A couple of people were sitting or standing by the guide rail, and someone (a mechanic?) was crouched between the dump truck and the pickup, talking on a flip-phone. I noticed that there was a bottle jack underneath near the rear pumpkin, and I could not be sure if he was trying to lift the rear axle.

There was not a chock block behind any one of the 8 tires I could see (with no load, the middle 2 tires were in the air). If I were a cop, and called to investigate the dump truck rolling back and executing the cell phone user, I would write it up as a suicide and not an accident.

Re: Leveling blocks

Back on topic my skoolie-ites

So we use a combo of 2x6 wood and mostly fiberglass grating that has 10 grit texture on one side

These are scrap from when Lisa worked at fibergrate 15 hrs ago.

They are made to replace/upgrade steel catwalks, check out local fiberglass shops...because you might luck out, shipping would be a killer

If ground is soft, wood goes down first, then fiberglass they are both about 1-1/2 thick and as wide as the rear duals....I will not put all the wt on one tire(even though they could probably handle the wt I want the friction/traction and stability of two tires on the ground)

I reckon i need a picture for this thread....give me a few hrs or days....waiting to go into chair soon
