Fiberglass tubes (John, you awake?)


Recommended Posts

I was looking through Johns site a few days ago and found some info on making fiberglass tubes using PVC, sandblasting sand, an innertube and a live chicken...


At least I think it was a live chicken...


I can't find it now, anyone have any info/details on this method? Does it work well for tubes curved in 3 dimensions?


BTW, John, sounds like you had an exciting weekend!

How do you fiberglass a live chicken?

Wouldn't that be cruel?


Sorry it's an inside/voodoo/tech support joke. I work in tech support for software, once I overheard a colleage say to a customer:


"OK, you're going to need a live chicken. Cut off it's head and spray your computer case and keyboard liberally with it's blood. The keyboard is the key-demons spirits sometimes stick underneath the 'W' key. When that is done, reboot the computer and it will be fine."

OK, totally off subject, but since we're talking tech support, let me tell you about the teacher (a family friend) who bought a new Apple II. Seems she got the last one off the production line and she couldn't find software to run on it, because no-one was designing for the Apple II any more.


She called Apple and explained her problem. The answer she got [i swear]


"you're a teacher. Think of this as a learning experience".
