good grief


All you guys know how to do is put words in my mouth


NOWHERE did I propose they made STEEL

all I did was reply that they had access to the requirements

not that they accessed those requirements

Neither did I propose Iron. I merely agreed that they might have utilised iron.

Why this desperation to hammer home your disagreement with point I am not making?

For the most part my answer to all these questions is I don't know for sure.

What I constantly find frustrating is the obsession of some of YOU with absolutes.

FWIW...I have worked with iron, steel, copper, brass, bronze

I have not to date Personally worked with granite.

But I have worked with Limestone and Slate

I know enough to know that testing can and should be done

But it will be expensive.

Surely you can foresee the obstacles that suggests

and surely you can see that nothing is being solved here in this regard
