    Sticky: What do do?

    That is just too funny. I am really in a bind because my Binford 6723 just blew its micro-gezortenhammer circuit and I can't find spare Finnegan pins for the Retro Encabulator anywhere.

    You make a very valid point about the additional structural rigidity offered by the panels. Similar to the function of the skin of an airplane wing, and I got your point loud and clear. There's no ...
